In these dark wintry days, sleep is never far from my thoughts. Much like a bear or a badger, I'm all about those deep winter sleeps, and as a self-proclaimed sleep evangelist I am passionate about getting good quality sleep and the impact that can have on your health and wellbeing. When I'm well-rested and replenished I bring more to the table at work, in relationships, in my writing - you name it, if I'm getting my rest I'll be better at it!
Imagine my joy, then, when the gorgeous Julia from Penguin Life sent me a copy of Sleep by Nick Littlehales to read and review. Nick has worked for years with elite athletes at the very top of their fields, and in Sleep he distills his findings from these years of works into easily digested chapters for mere mortals to apply to their own lives. This was a quick, enjoyable read, and I enjoyed Nick's lightness of touch - he's not afraid to get scientific, but doesn't meander off into vast swathes of dense jargon. This is a practical, useful book.
I enjoyed the tips and the methods for creating good sleep habits, and I rarely need convincing on the matter of naps. This book handles the whole topic with skill in a really accessible way. If increasing your sleep health is a priority for 2017, I'd heartily recommend this book. Happy reading - and sweet dreams!
