Publisher's Synopsis

Proven solutions for better ZZZZ, from an elite sleep coach

'Nick Littlehales wants to redefine the very meaning of the word sleep' - Daily Telegraph

One third of our lives are spent trying to sleep. Most us have restless nights and rely on a cocktail of caffeine and sugar to drag us through the day. Yet the hours we spend in bed shape our mood, motivation and decision-making skills - defining our performance in work, at home and while keeping fit.

We need a new approach to sleep. In Sleep, Nick Littlehales, the leading sleep coach, debunks the myths around sleep and introduces many new concepts, including:

· Why the fabled eight hours just doesn't add up
· The power of the nap - and how you can nap with your eyes open
· Ways to deal with anxiety, children, snoring and other night-time challenges
· How to discover your own sleep cycle

From your personal sleep characteristics and cycles, to posture and bedding, he sets out achievable ways to get the highest possible quality of sleep recovery. Read Sleep, learn from the best in sport, and kick-start a more confident, successful and happier you.

'He enables players to maximise the quality and consistency of their sleep and in turn their overall performance' -- Sir Alex Ferguson
