Ep 33: RunShorts #4 Importance of Sleep for Improving Sports Performance or for General Health
Generally, the first thought while thinking about fitness that comes to our mind is training. We think about working out and how that will help meet our fitness goals. As we progress, we also start to think about nutrition and how that, too, may aid to meet your fitness goal. In between all this, we miss a crucial aspect of fitness and overall health — Sleep.
This episode of RunShorts is inspired by Episode 14 of Run With Fitpage, where we had Dr Amy Bender speak with our host Vikas Singh about various aspects of sleep. In this short episode, Vikas explains the key functions of a good night’s sleep, the 3 stages of our sleep cycle, the factors affecting sleep, nap, and a lot more information to help you get a good night of sleep!
Vikas Singh, an MBA from Chicago Booth, worked at Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, APGlobale and Reliance before coming up with an idea of democratizing fitness knowledge and help beginners get on a fitness journey. Vikas is an avid long-distance runner, building fitpage to help people learn, train, and move better.
