What if I could tell you one simple thing that is free and you can do in the next 24 hours that can improve your performance by 20%? Would you do it?!
No…it’s not magic…to find out in this week's video!
… it’s sleep! Even with the increase of research and studies, most people today are sleep deprived.
Being chronically tired means that we are less likely to perform at our best level because we start out feeling fatigued or exhausted.
Without sufficient sleep, over-worked neurons lose their function to coordinate information properly, and we lose our ability to access previously learned information.
A Harvard team of neurophysiologist conducted a study that improvement in motor skill performance is not only to continue 24 hours following training, but a night of sleep results in 20% increase in motor speed without loss of accuracy.
Group A - received training at 10am, and re-tested every 4 hours (at 2pm, 6pm, and 10pm). Basically, there was only minor improvement likely resulted from the continued repetitions at each re-test.
Group B - also received training at 10am, re-tested 12 hours later at 10pm, and again at 10am the next day. They showed similar minor improvement in performance when tested at 10pm. However, when tested at 10am after a night of sleep, they demonstrated almost 20% improvement relative to their scores the night before.
To ensure this significant improvement in performance was a result of sleep and not extra time lapse, another group was trained and tested at 10pm, then re-tested the following day at 10am and 10pm. As with Group B, this third group showed a 20% improvement from 10pm to 10am and minor improvement from 10am to 10pm.
In fact, many researches show evidence that various sleep stages are involved in the consolidation of different types of memories. But as we all know, common sense isn’t common practice.
Your challenge this week if you’re getting less than 7 hours of sleep per night to add 1 hour of sleep per night for the next 7 days and see how you feel.
If you believe you can get by on less sleep than 7 hours of sleep per night then have either your significant other, family, friends, or colleagues rate YOU on a scale of 1-10 your sleep habits are affecting your performance, attention, ability to make sound decisions and your memory.
You may fool yourself into believing that you’re not affected by getting less than 7 hours of sleep, but people around you can tell.
I love hearing from you, so please leave comments below on your own research on sleep and experimentation!

"This means…that millions of us are living a less than optimal life and performing at a less than optimal level, impaired by an amount of sleep debt that we're not even aware we carry." ~ William Dement, PhD
