Sleep Follow Up Lesson
How did you sleep this week?
In a recent interview, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was asked about his sleep habits after revealing he goes to be at 8:30pm each night. Here's his response...
"I do go to bed very early because I'm up very early. I think that the decisions that I make always center around performance enhancement, if that makes sense. So whether that's what I eat or what decisions I make or whether I drink or don't drink, it's always football-centric. I want to be the best I can be every day. I want to be the best I can be every week. I want to be the best I can be for my teammates. I love the game and I want to do it for a long time. But I also know that if I want to do it for a long time, I have to do things differently than the way guys have always done it."
