As reported in a this TIME video series, Arianna Huffington sat down with NBA basketball star Andre Iguodala of the Golden State Warriors to discuss how Sleep affects his athletic performance. Andre said performance on the court greatly improves with good sleep and that monitoring shows that getting 7.5 hours of restorative sleep improves his 3-point shooting by a whopping 50%, his free-throw shooting by 30-40%, and his turnovers and steals as well. That’s a huge competitive advantage in any league.
Arianna, in her new book, The Sleep Revolution, describes other ways sleep affects performance, including at school and work, as well as how it affects your health and personal safety.
