Tips to Improve Sports Performance With Sleeping

If you want to maximize recovery time, you should first get enough sleep because rest significantly improves your sports performance. Here are some useful tips how to sleep better.

1 START DAYDREAMING

Sink into sleep by visualizing success – the best athletes use this technique all the time. Just close your eyes and visualize doing something really well, whether it’s a specific event or just a specific situation where you felt strong, powerful, and successful.

2 GO TO SLEEP EARLY

Try to go to bed before midnight – before 11pm is best – three or four times a week. The 90-minute sleep cycle before midnight is essential for rebalancing the adrenal and thyroid glands and lowering the day’s adrenaline build-up.

3 HAVE AN AFTERNOON NAP

There’s not always time for this but when you do have time, try to have an afternoon nap – it’s best some time between 2pm and 4pm. A 20-minute nap will enhance your focus, while a 40-minute (but not more) will boost muscle recovery and optimise physical performance.
