sleep[ing] recovery techniques & sleepTechnic products
“Sleep is the natural every day recovery process and we know all about the importance of sleeping well, because we experience the benefits when it happens. However from my experience, most get by on more bad nights than good and have little,or no knowledge of why that actually happens. In sport and the workplace, sleep is not classified as performance factor, so even when we don’t sleep at all, we still crack on and as importantly allowed to, regardless of the side effects. The modern day tech driven generation is creating much higher levels of performance at every level and the ever growing associated demands, demand a new approach.
When I ask any group how many hours you sleep for the say EIGHT. Not because they do, but because they have heard, read or been told that is the right amount of time a healthy adult needs to sleep for every day. So eight is the “I’m OK ” number.
After over 30 years in the sleep industry and over 16 years dedicated to elite sport, I have never worked with any individual or group that achieves 8 hours per day or gets even close. This is the key recovery factor redefining when you sleep, how and why.” Nick
