Cheri Mah, MD, MS. Physician scientist specialized in sleep & performance in elite athletes focuses on the relationship between sleep and performance in elite athletes. She advises the Nike Performance Council and works in the US with professional teams in the National Football League, National Basketball Association, National Hockey League and Major League Baseball.

Here are her tips on how to optimise sleep quality:

  • sleep environment is a cave — dark, quiet, cool, comfortable;
  • start a wind-down routine before bed (reading or writing a to-do list);
  • power down technology one hour before;
  • prioritise regular workouts;
  • eliminate alcohol and evaluate caffeine intake
