Finally getting a full nights sleep!

Any additional comments?

I have struggled on and off with sleep issues for years. Most of the books I have got on this subject are just a total mess - always either too simple or too medical. This was different. A concise and easy to follow format which has resulted in me finally getting a proper nights sleep almost every night now

The Real Guide to Better Sleep Habits

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommened this audiobook because it is a truly practical guide that can help you change the way you sleep in just a couple of hours.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that the explanantions were practical and things one can easily do without too much fuss. I have been able to get better sleep simply by changing the type of music I listen to in bed, getting rid of tablets and other sources of blue light and getting an e-Book reader with e-ink instead.

This audiobook also liked up to its title and was concise in its instructions and explanantions. It is also short enough to run through during a trip or a daily commute. The narrator was also very clear and easy to listen to even if you put the speed at 1.5X which I'll admit I do at times when I want to get through a chapter quickly.

Any additional comments?

As the name implies, this is one of the best books I’ve read about insomnia. Rarely have I seen a book take the time to go through each and every aspect of insomnia like the author did and I learnt a lot. Did you even know that sleeping on your side helps you to avoid neurological issues, back pain and snoring? I also now know that lying on my stomach is the reason why I wake up feeling uncomfortable sometimes. It’s nice to finally know why instead of thinking I just woke up on the ‘wrong side of the bed’.

I also learnt how to improve my sleeping hygiene. Thick socks before bed, lighter ones just before I go to sleep. Heated sheets should be turned off before sleeping to avoid issues. I will also pay more attention to the fabric my pajamas are made of when next I’m buying one. Another thing I will consider from the book is using wake-up sunlight alarm clocks instead of the regular noisy ones.

A new thing that I learnt is how to relax right before going to be. One of the relaxation techniques that I found out about is yoga (which I tried for a while and got too busy to try, definitely giving it another shot), I think I didn’t find a comfortable pose for myself and thanks to the book, I have more options now and know how to find the most soothing. Guided meditation is also something I will also give a shot it is also easy to do and can help me relax without referring to medication.

I have been using these methods for a week now and I hope to see even more improvements in my sleeping habits.
