New sleep science tells us that poor sleep is linked to obesity, diabetes, cancer and a shorter lifespan. We also now know that different people require different amounts of sleep, and that age and gender play a role in how much sleep we need and when we need it. This book sets sleep in context - as one of the key foundation stones of good health - and, crucially, gives you over 50 practical sleep strategies, so that you can reset your sleep patterns to suit you. How much sleep do you need at this point in your life? How can you prepare your body and mind for quality sleep? And what do you do when, despite your best intentions, your sleep is disturbed - by your newborn baby, stress, shift-work, jet lag? The targeted sleep-promoting meditation, movement and stress-relief exercises and science-based strategies in this book are part of a 360 degree approach to sleep - making excellent sleep a reality for even the most challenged of sleepers. Taking control of your sleep will enhance all areas of your life in ways you can't yet imagine. Wake up to the true power of sleep.
