Sleep and Recovery By Stephen McCarthy
Host Stephen McCarthy breaks down Sleep Recovery

We talked about the major obstacles to a balanced, healthy society and lifestyle for families and young athletes.  A couple solutions to the sleep debt include:

1. Taking a 30 minute nap daily.

2. Going outside and getting some sunshine daily.

3. Lower your consumption of TV, the phone, and energy drinks.

4.  Sleep over 7-8 hours a night.

5.  Turn out the lights at night

If athletes would follow these few steps, their mood, recovery and performance would increase.
