Review by Karen Moulton
Book is available to borrow from the library
Sleep is an essential part for the function of your mind and body, however many of us struggle to get the right amount and quality of sleep our body requires. In the book Sleep Smarter, Shawn Stevenson provides an explanation of why sleep is important for our health and the consequences of poor-quality sleep. Stevenson provides twenty-one strategies on how to improve your sleep and sleep patterns. I found this book to be written in clear language with easy-to-understand examples, however some of the scientific research quoted may require further reading. The end of each chapter has tips one can implement every day from all aspects of life from nutrition, exercise and your sleeping environment. The book also includes a fourteen-day sleep-makeover plan and a lot of further references. If you are struggling with sleep and are after an easy read with practical advice, this book is for you!
