Sleep has become a “hot topic” over the last 10 years, but is it really as powerful as we think? Are naps bad? Does alcohol help you sleep? Is it okay to sleep in? What about sleep apps and wearables? This lecture will provide details about sleep, its impact on health and performance, sleep mythology, and answer many more questions regarding this essential element to performance, life, and well-being.
