Sleep in Daily Activity
While sleep is shown to improve athletic performance for the long term, sleep has also proven important for daily activity. Sleep deprivation can impede cognitive function and alertness. Have you ever found yourself struggling to remember routine steps, or focusing on a project? It may be a normal routine for you to cut sleep to finish a project (Sometimes, I find myself in this boat.) If cutting sleep becomes normal, start paying attention to the little things. If you notice forgetfulness, lack of focus, or minimal motivation, start taking action to improve you sleep habits.
