Synopsis

Sleep is fundamental to our health and wellbeing. In this guide to improving your sleep quality by adapting your environment and routines, you'll discover how you can establish healthy sleep habits that best fit your life!



International sleep expert Dr Katharina Lederle draws on the latest research to explore how sleep is connected to each of the three pillars of healthy and successful living: physical health, cognitive performance, and emotional wellbeing. As these pillars are interconnected, if one is weakened through poor sleep, our overall health can easily be undermined.



The book begins with a tour of the most essential information for understanding sleep; how and where it is generated and regulated, why light is so important for sleep, and how sleep differs by gender. It also touches briefly upon dreaming, highlighting that it is normal to dream and perhaps useful to reflect a little on what we dream about.



The latter part of the book looks in detail at how sleep affects the pillars of healthy living, explains the sleep disorders which compromise these pillars, and sets out a 'menu' of healthy sleep options from which readers can choose to best suit their individual needs. The result is a book that both informs and educates as it sets out clear guidelines and practical advice on how you can achieve improved health through improved sleep.
