Why do we all need more sleep?

DSC_1377

Do you believe that you are getting enough sleep each night?  What do you think you need, 6, 8, or 10 hours?  I bet that a lot of you are thinking, “I wish I could get 8 hours a night”.  We all know that sleep and rest are important to our performance, but how important.  I know it is hard to dedicate yourself to getting enough sleep, the majority of your work 40+ hours a week plus travel time, but I challenge you to make it a priority when you can.  The article puts it well by saying, “Make a decision here and now that sleep is an integral part of your training and that you are going to take it as seriously as exercise and nutrition.”

Check out the article below and comment on how you will make changes with regards to sleep to increase your health and performance.
