Sleep Sense Summary

Sleep Sense: Improve your sleep, improve your health by Dr. Katharina Lederle

Sleep Well. Feel Good.

Sleep is fundamental to our health and well being. In Sleep Sense, international sleep expert Dr. Katharina Lederle draws on the latest research to explore how sleep is connected to each of the three pillars of successful living: physical health, cognitive performance, and emotional well-being. And since the three pillars are interconnected, if one is weakened, our overall health can easily be undermined.
The first part of the book takes readers on 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 between the genders. 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 second part of the book looks in detail at how sleep affects each of the three pillars, explains sleep disorders, and sets out a 'menu' of healthy sleep options from which readers can choose in order to establish healthy sleep habits that best fit their life. 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.
