When was the last time you had a good night's sleep? People dread a bad night's sleep. When startled awake in the middle of the night we stare at the ceiling, often counting sheep, eagerly searching for ways to trick ourselves back to sleep. Here's a book that will help. Research has found that almost a third of us don't get enough sleep most nights, and according to the CDC, 70 percent of Americans have at least one sleepless night each month. Lack of sleep can wreak havoc on everyday life, leaving us feeling exhausted, irritable, and unwell. When it comes to better sleep there are innumerable factors: everything from having a purpose in life to warming your feet, from what you eat through the day to how you breathe, from how much time you spend outdoors to reframing your thoughts and mindset. This book is packed with easy-to-read and simple-to-follow tips, as well as some weird and wonderful tricks, all gathered from expert scientific research, that will help you fall asleep and stay asleep. These range from general lifestyle tips to psychology to mindfulness to eating habits, and more. Many will be surprised to learn that sleeping well at night begins when you first wake up each morning. In hundreds of short entries, Trick Yourself to Sleep diagnoses persistent barriers to sleep-from stress and anxiety to dehydration and excess caffeine-and offers creative ways to offset each. You may be surprised to learn that laughing throughout the day helps us sleep better-as does trying to force ourselves to stay awake in the middle of the night.
