The Little Book of Sleep: The Art of Natural Sleep
by Dr. Nerina Ramlakhan Author
Sleep better, without medicine. This surprisingly comprehensive little book walks you through the science, psychology, and culture of troubled sleep. Understanding why we have insomnia or other sleep disturbances is the first step (spoiler: it has a lot to do with our nervous systems and with feeling safe). Sleep therapist Dr. Ramlakhan lays it all out, and then draws on science and tactics from medical traditions around the world to offer practical, accessible steps to improving your sleep. Some advice, like setting good boundaries with your phone at night, is not new, but is offered in a helpfully realistic spirit. Other tips, like talking or writing about your feelings, or "eat something within 30 minutes of waking up" might not otherwise ever occur to you as affecting your sleep, but she spells out why it all makes a difference.
