Sleep. It’s a beautiful thing where recovery occurs and dreams are made…literally. We all know how amazing we feel after a good night’s sleep but what are the creeping implications of years of mediocre sleep? Cheri Mah [@Cheri_Mah] works with professional athletes whose livelihood depends on recovery but with so many external variables like demanding travel schedules, time zone changes, and injuries, how does she ensure that these phenoms are optimizing their zzz’s?
Hear how she’s created a priority system that will enable even the common man to steadily increase their quality of sleep. And for my shift working peeps out there, don’t worry, Mah gives you tools to create the perfect winding down routine.
Not only has Cheri’s expertise predicted season win and loss trends, but it’s also been instrumental in the individual successes of numerous pro performers.
Do not sleep on the importance of sleep. To hear more on Cheri’s research follow her on twitter @CHERI_MAH. She’s a busy lady but if the questions can’t wait…try emailing her at CheriMah@stanfordalumni.org. Sweet dreams!
