With details about wearable technology and gear, you’ll be able to make essential adjustments that will improve not only your sleep, but also your daily energy levels and overall performance.
“Sleep ends up being a leading indicator and sometimes activity can be a lagging indicator,” says Harpreet Rai, co-founder of Oura Ring. “If you get enough sleep and your heart rate variability is high and you're in that parasympathetic state, you're going to perform better in activity the next day. And there are numerous studies that actually show that. I think trying to get people in this mentality of, “focusing on tomorrow today by focusing on sleep first,” gets you ready in this mindset for what's going to happen tomorrow.”
Enjoy the show—and check back next Tuesday for part 4 of our Better Sleep Month series.
