How To Sleep Well – The Sleep Guide

Introduction

Sleep is incredible. While we dream our mind not only works through our problems, but also regenerates it’s neurotransmitters, consolidates the information we were exposed to in the day (learning), and dreams up new ideas and solutions. Our body rebalances hormones, grows and regenerates. A lack of quality sleep can negatively impact our energy levels, libido, concentration, attention, drive, motivation, and memory. Sleep deprivation reduces our performance mentally and physically, leads to worse decision making and slower learning.

It slows the pace at which we can recover from physical training and reduces work capacity and strength performance in the gym. It’s bad for our relationships, our health, and our performance. The really awful part is that very few people actually get good sleep. Even fewer get enough of it. Chances are that you do not get the regeneration you should be getting out of your sleep. If you are to take on a high-performance lifestyle you really need to optimise sleep. So much so that it’s often the first thing we attend to with clients who come to see us for training. Once we improve sleep everything gets
better. Drive and attention increase which leads to better workouts and better decisions about food and lifestyle. Caffeine consumption goes down and this further improves sleep.

As growth hormone and testosterone rise so does adaptation to training, and progress improves. As energy increases the drive to train increases and more worthwhile sessions can be added in. As neurotransmitter balance is restored we see improvements in satisfaction with life, concentration
and performance, not to mention better relationships. It is extremely powerful, and this is why we start here.
