We spend one-third of our lives either sleeping, or “trying” to sleep. And yet our success with sleep can have a profound effect on everything from our mood to our decision-making, impacting our overall health and happiness.
In this book, Nick Littlehales steers clear of the simplistic “get 8 hours a day” approach and shows you his R90 Sleep Recover Program; something he’s developed over two decades as a professional sleep coach. He not only uses science and research data, but real empirical evidence gathered by coaching elite athletes, selling mattresses, and being a parent.
“You'll learn how to map your unique sleep cycle, optimize your environment for recovery, and cope with the demands of this fast-paced, tech-driven world. Read Sleep and rest your way to a more confident, successful, and happier you.”
Even among elite athletes, only some have what it takes to bounce back after devastating injuries, conquer tough obstacles and face insurmountable odds. Leading sports psychology consultant Afremow has seen firsthand what separates good athletes from great ones. Making a comeback isn’t just about raw talent or athletic ability- it’s the mental game that counts most.
In The Champion’s Comeback, Dr. Afremow shares the winning strategies used by great “comeback” athletes to help you, no matter your age or skill level, to:
-Get mentally psyched for competition
-Quickly rebound after loss
- Overcome injuries and the fear of re-injury
This book is a must read for any athlete on the road to recovery, and their key support systems: coaches, partners and parents!
It’s tricky trying to raise well-rounded young athletes in the age of hypermonetized competitive youth sports, year-round traveling teams, and overzealous parents screaming on the sidelines. But Norwich, Vermont, a rural town of 3,000, seems to have it figured out... explore how this tight-knit community has “opted out of the academic and athletic arms race” with a balanced, collaborative approach to sports—and produced 11 Olympic athletes and three Olympic medals.
"Making it to the Olympics is seen not as the pinnacle of an athlete’s career but as a fun stop on the way to achieving other, longer-lasting dreams. Norwich, Crouse realized, wasn’t just raising better athletes than the rest of America; it was raising happier, healthier kids.
This book is pivotal for every parent who wants to raise kids to be levelheaded, fulfilled, and successful." -Amazon
This month, we're reading The Power of Habit, by Charles Duhigg.
Dive into recent scientific discoveries that make sense of repetitive behavior, and how to build beneficial habits, or more challenging, modify unproductive habits.
Learn from narratives of success, "from the boardrooms of Procter & Gamble to sidelines of the NFL to the front lines of the civil rights movement"
"...At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, being more productive, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. As Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives." See how this approach can impact your recovery.
