Sleep is an important part of your program, in that it allows your body to recover. We recommend getting 7+ hours of sleep for optimal recovery. Almost everyone can improve on their sleep habits. Many people drink caffeine in the afternoon, which isn’t a good idea, especially if you have trouble falling asleep. Also, it is good to turn off all screens (TV, iPad, phones, laptops) a few hours before bed time. Instead, try reading, practicing yoga, or meditating to ready yourself for a truly restful recovery sleep.
