Even though the important health and fitness benefits of sleep are getting more and more attention, merely advising a client to get more sleep is a mistake because most clients are extremely busy and don’t want to give up what little free time they have left. Instead, try to focus on helping them sleep better instead of sleeping more. More is not even always better — sleeping too much is also associated with health risks.
