A personal and practical book about getting more sleep by ex-insomniac Kate Mikhail. It will help readers upgrade their sleep, health and wellbeing, while taking a cutting-edge, 360 degree look at sleep, and everything in our life that influences it.
The fall-out from not getting enough quality sleep is harsh - from exhaustion to a depressed immune system and long-term health risks... but what can we do to turn this around, if our sleep-wake cycle is in chaos?
Kate Mikhail's first-person account of how she tackled her chronic insomnia is an evidence-based book that brings sleep science to life. From NASA light science to how to tune into your body and sleep, Teach Yourself to Sleep is backed up by extensive research and exclusive interviews with leading doctors, scientists, experts and academics - to help you understand sleep like never before.
Teach Yourself to Sleep takes a thought-provoking and accessible look at the science and biology of sleep, opening up a new way of looking at sleep issues in a much wider context. It is the perfect blend of original research, practical advice and interesting history that brings a fresh perspective to the topic of sleep and a new approach for unlocking the obstacles that might be holding poor sleepers back from getting the better, quality sleep they need.
If you want an example of how one person's struggle can go on to help so many others, this book is it. Kate Mikhail's writing is a wonderful combination of personal experience and investigation into the science, knowledge and practice that will help readers navigate their way out of insomnia and towards getting a gorgeous night's sleep.
