This week we have Dr. Amy Bender, she is a professor at the University of Calgary, and she is a scientist on a mission to promote sleep! We love talking about sleep and we loved this interview.
We talk about athletes and performance and why you should make sleep more of a priority. We also dive into caffeine and how it effects sleep performance. She also shares with us the athlete sleep questionnaire which she has used on olympic athletes.
Lastly we dive into wearable, which is the best for sleep, how todo lists can help, reading, and MORE.
