How Athletes Prioritize Sleep for Their Health

Posted August 1st, 2018 in Hastens, Mattress Brands and tagged , by Jorge Lopez

Athletes are always focused on their bodies – how they can improve their strength, their speed, or their health. The world’s top athletes also focus on sleep, because sleeping has more effects on your health than you’d think.

It’s believed NBA legend LeBron James often aims for twelve hours of sleep a night, and tennis star Roger Federer sleeps for about ten to twelve hours. Clearly they know the importance of sleep. During sleep, your body cleans itself of toxins. Not getting enough sleep can increase your risk of heart disease, neurodegenerative diseases, and cancer. If you’re sleep deprived, you can’t make good decisions or multitask well.

There’s a lot you can do to sleep better. For example, keep away from your phone at night. The light from the screen will suppress melatonin, a hormone that regulates the sleep-wake cycle. You should also stay away from caffeinated beverages before sleeping.

You should do everything you can to get a good night’s sleep. Pro athletes do, so you should too. A mattress by Hästens or names like Vispring will help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep, potentially preventing the effects of a sleep disorder such as insomnia.
