326: Sleep:The Athlete's Steroid

Time Block G1 - Saturday, 11:50am-1:05pm (Special Time)
Presented by: Mike Bracko
Session Format: Lecture

Sleep has been called the athlete’s steroid. When our clients get the proper amount and quality of sleep, it can improve reaction time, mood and performance, and decrease fatigue. Conversely, poor sleep or lack of sleep is shown to affect other aspects of how we function, including increasing cortisol, which increases cravings for fatty and comfort foods. In this compelling lecture, we’ll take a look at the essentials of sleep health and how to counsel our clients to improve their sleep.
