  • A variety of sleep-assessment inventories and scientific measuring instruments can be used to identify sleep quality.
  • Rest and recovery from exercise rely on renourishment of the depleted energy resources used in that specific activity.
  • Game and competition travel need to consider different cultures, food selections, bed comfort, and environmental conditions, including dry air and cramped airplane trips.
