#629 Sleeping with Tom Brady

And Roger Federer and LeBron James

Tom Brady is one of the (if not the) greatest football players of all time. He’s won five Super Bowl Championships and is still dominating at over 40 years old.

You know what time he goes to bed at night?

8:30.

Then there’s Roger Federer. He’s one of the greatest tennis players of all time. 20 Grand Slams. Nearly 100 tour wins to go along with over $100 million in career earnings.

You know how many hours he likes to sleep a day?

11 to 12. (Otherwise he says he “just doesn’t feel right” and says he’ll get injured.)

Then we have another all-time great: LeBron James. He and Federer must be studying the same peak-performance playbook because he’s another 11 to 12 hours of sleep per night kinda guy.

Now… Why in the world would the world’s best athletes spend so much time in bed?!

Because they get paid to perform. And they know that SLEEP is one of their secret weapons.

The question is: Why do YOU think you can get by on so little sleep? 😜

As Arianna Huffington brilliantly articulates in The Sleep Revolution, the research is unequivocal: Sleep does a body good.

Today’s +1.

How much sleep are you getting these days?

What do you think is your optimal amount? (Note: Science says: A minimum of 7 hours of sleep per night. Target: 7 to 9.)

And, what can you do, STARTING TONIGHT, to make that happen?

Sweet dreams, my fellow Optimizer.

And, much more importantly, sweet actualizing of those dreams with your sleep-powered Energy!
