to health outcomes such as irritable sleep and decreased cognitive and psychosocial well-being among children. 4 Although it is recommended for toddlers (1–2 y old) to engage in at least 180 minutes of active playtime and no more than 1 hour screen time until they reach 2 years old, 7 evidence

Human physical activity and sleep are popular areas of research because of their important role in health outcomes ( He, Zhang, Li, Dai, & Shi, 2017 ; Lee et al., 2012 ). Physical activity and sleep have traditionally been quantified with diaries and questionnaires, but wearable sensors have

Sleep concerns are prevalent among student-athletes and can result in impaired athletic and academic performance. The current study investigated the feasibility and effectiveness of a brief sleep workshop for student-athletes. Athletes (N = 152) completed baseline and follow-up questionnaires (n = 104) after the intervention. Greater than half of the athletes (51%) who attended the workshops and followup reported at least one change in sleep behaviors. Results revealed a significant decrease in sleepiness from baseline to follow-up and an improvement in daytime functioning. Although athletes reported an increase in problematic sleep hygiene behaviors, they recorded significant increases in sleep knowledge from baseline to follow-up, which was maintained at the second follow-up. These longitudinal data provide evidence that a brief psychoeducation sleep workshop for student-athletes is promising for improving sleep knowledge and daily functioning.

. Since the start of the pandemic, researchers have studied the effects of the imposed restrictions on various lifestyle behaviors (such as sleep, levels of physical activity, and other activities of daily living) independently. Many studies across continents have reported that lockdown resulted in

The restorative and performance-enhancing roles of sleep in athletes have been reported widely in the sport-science literature. 1 Knowledge of the negative consequences of sleep inadequacy on sport performance outcomes and athlete health have also been reported widely. 2 Despite its vital role in

The amount and quality of sleep plays an integral role in overall health ( Irwin, 2015 ). More than 10% of the United States population suffers from a clinically significant sleep disorder, such as insomnia and sleep apnea ( Ram, Seirawan, Kumar, & Clark, 2010 ), which has been estimated to cost up

Numerous strategies are commonly implemented in an attempt to maximize the rate of recovery, including hydrotherapy, compression garments, and individualized nutrition programs. Often underutilized in high-performance environments, given its restorative role, sleep has the potential to assist with
