Excitement Insomnia? Seven Tips for LeBron James!

Sleep Well, Play Well

The Miami Heat star tweeted early Sunday morning: “Can’t sleep! Too excited right now.” Insufficient sleep can adversely affect vigilance, reaction time, perception, and accuracy. Remember MJ losing at Madison Square Garden after a trip to Atlantic City? To avoid similar outcome in Game 2, here are seven tips for LeBron.

  1. Assign ten o’clock at night to six o’clock in the morning as sacred time, reserved for resting and recharging instead of worrying about the big game. Read your favorite lines from the Bible or any other religious book to calm your nerves.
  2. Continue your relaxing bedtime ritual: shower, relaxing reading, cookies and milk, Chamomile tea, and meditation, per your preference.
  3. Keep your bedroom dark, quiet, and cool. Do the best you can to minimize noise. Cool, soothing white noise can help promote deep sleep. Based on your preference, you can use the sounds of ocean, nature, or water running to achieve similar effect. Keep the clock face turned away. Looking at a clock at night will stimulate your brain.
  4. Ignore your laptop or Smartphone completely when in the bed. Watching TV in bed will stimulate your brain and will rob you of your deep sleep.
  5. Avoid intense workout before bedtime.
  6. Avoid caffeine. Caffeine has a duration of action of twenty-four hours, so a cup of coffee consumed at seven in the morning is still in your bloodstream at ten at night when you are trying to fall asleep.
  7. Absolutely avoid alcohol within three hours of bedtime. Alcohol increases numbers of micro arousals (wakefulness activity of ten seconds or longer on an EEG recording) during sleep, robs you of your deep sleep, and makes your sleep non-restorative. It also causes adrenaline over-stimulation when the alcohol level in the blood is coming down.
Best Wishes.
