Banyen's Description: 

Experts of every kind are queueing up to warn us that lack of sleep, or the wrong kind, will bring down a bewildering array of dire consequences. Sleep psychotherapist Heather Darwall-Smith's message in this fascinating and informative book is simple: don't panic! Humans are biologically programmed to sleep, and by interrogating all the factors - sociological, physiological, neurological, and psychological - that might be impeding this innate instinct, each of us can work out the changes we can make in our own lifestyles to allow ourselves to sleep naturally—again.

The book offers two sections:

  • Sleep Basics (including "The Simple Truth about Sleep" and "The Mechanics of Good Sleep"—each answering more questions than you ever thought to ask)
  • Know Your Own Sleep (including "Life Stages," "Mind and Body," "Lifestyle," "Your Sleep Environment, and "When Sleep Goes Wrong")

This book is for anyone who wants to learn about sleep, avoiding the misleading and sometimes harmful clamor that often accompanies the topic. It will guide you through the basics of what sleep is and how it works, then address the most important issues we have around sleep—based on questions I am asked on a daily basis in my practice. These are divided into easy-to-digest sections covering all the factors that can influence the quality and quantity of your sleep, including physical and mental health, age, lifestyle, and your sleep environment...
 

Perhaps the most important message I can share with you is that no one sleeps perfectly—and that's okay. My mission is this boo is to help you understand and work with your own sleep profile, which is as unique as your fingerprint. Sleep is a vital piece in the jigsaw puzzle of health and well-being—and by balancing factors such as getting ehough sunlight, staying active, reducing stress, and eating well, you really can help yourself to a good night's sleep.
