We martial artists are an active bunch, we train for hours everyday. We stretch, pull, and punish our bodies. And we push ourselves to our limits and beyond all in the name of perfection in the arts. But woe unto the warrior who forgets his body’s “mortar”: sleep!
Sleep is, considered by most experts, to be just as vital to fitness and health as exercise and healthy eating. It is during the cycles of sleep that your body starts to repair damage done by intense martial arts training and injury.
The following is an Info-graphic from Jason over at Frugal Dad on not only how important it is to get proper sleep, but also what happens to your body during the course of rest and how you can get better sleep overall. Enjoy!
