Why we sleep
Wow. That’s the least I can say. What an unbelievable book. Wish I could get everyone in the world to read it, especially my family, and the current U. S. president. So much for the genius of Thomas Edison. I’m going to sleep now. I want to change my life.
The Need to Change the Way We View Sleep
By Mr. Piggster
If you read this book you will never look at your sleep time the same way and that's a good thing! Matthew Walker's book is an in-depth, easy-to-understand, fascinating read about sleep. We spend a third of our lives sleeping, yet most of us have no idea what is going on in our brains and bodies while we are doing it.
One of the best take-aways for me from reading this book is that our circadian cycles are hard wired into our brains. I'm a night owl and have suffered loss of sleep during most of my life. I am now at a point where I can give in to my natural circadian rhythm and get a full night's sleep. The results have been almost immediate for me. I feel more focused, have more energy and less anxiety. Seeing my husband off to work has taken a back seat to my getting a full night of sleep. What a difference. So good to know I'm not just lazy!
If our society pays attention to the excellent suggestions in this book, it could have a positive influence on everything from health- mental and physical- to productivity at work and personal achievement. I hope everyone will read it.
