Tom Brady is an elite athlete that will go down in history as one of the best NFL quarterbacks of all time. He’s been to the Super Bowl a total of 10 times, and in 2021, while playing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he won his 7th Super Bowl. In addition to having 7 Super Bowl wins, Brady also holds several records in the NFL. How does he do it all?
Brady puts a lot of effort into getting a good amount of quality sleep. His sleep routine may be a big contributing factor to all of his success, and it isn’t overly complicated. In fact, Tom Brady’s sleep routine is easy enough for just about everyone to follow.
The first step to Brady’s sleep routine is staying on schedule. He generally goes to bed at 9 pm, and wakes up at 6 am, giving him a total of 9 hours of rest each night. The part of his consistency is always turning off the T.V. and other electronic devices 30 minutes before laying down. This means everything electronic gets shut down in the Brady house around 8:30 pm so he can get catch his nightly 9 pm meeting with his bed, which happens to be a diamond memory foam mattress.
For enchanted physical recovery, Brady also sleeps in infrared pajamas. Which he probably needs to wear too, because he likes to keep the bedroom temperature set between 60 and 65 degrees. The last consistent rule Brady follows as part of his sleep routine is not eating after dinner.
That’s it. You might think it would be more, but it’s really not complicated. Stick to a bedtime and wake up at the same time in the morning to allow 9 hours of sleep. Don’t eat after dinner, shut off your electronics 30 minutes before bed, and set the room temperature between 60 and 65 degrees. If you can throw on some infrared pajamas and spring for the diamond memory foam mattress too, then you might sleep well enough to be winning your next day like Tom Brady.
