Aside from a thirst for adventure, there is another thing that our previous guests have in common. Whether it be due to the early mornings and long hours spent in training, or the deep dark deprivation which comes in the midst of a long race or endurance challenge, they’ve all found their sleep patterns disrupted and suffered as a consequence.
In this episode, we discuss all things slumber related with James Wilson, a Sleep Behaviour and Environment Expert who has, with a supporting team of other experts, developed an approach that helps people understand their sleep better, and assists them in making the changes to their mindset, behaviours and environment that can lead to better sleep.
Why do we need to sleep? Why is it sometimes so hard to get to? What is happening to you when you’re sleep-deprived and what can you do about it during a race? We’ll chat through these questions and more as we fight off the sleep monsters and learn how best to harness rest.
