Getting regular sleep is one of the most important gifts you can give yourself. The health benefits are tremendous.
And if you’re an athlete, or just someone committed to an active lifestyle, adequate sleep is necessary to prevent injuries.
In a study published in March, 2020 in the Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport, the link between lack of sleep and developing sports injuries was unmistakable. Injuries didn’t occur simply from a random bad night of sleep here or there; in fact, more injuries occurred when athletes averaged less than 7 hours of sleep per night over the prior two weeks.
That’s why regular sleep habits are so important.
