We are huge fans of Arianna Huffington's new book The Sleep Revolution. It contains valuable insight into the way sleep plays into our waking lives and our health, including reducing the risks of weight gain, diabetes, heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s.
Arianna highlights that although we may feel like we are getting ahead by cutting back on sleep the consequences can be dangerous and that with sufficient sleep both our personal and professional lives will be far richer.
A deep dive into the prevalent sleeping pill industry is also discussed as well as setting up simple habits such as a sleep schedule to help us live so much better are included.
Simply put, you can't cheat sleep and some of the most successful people in the world prioritize sleep in their daily lives. Arianna highlights Tom Brady of the New England Patriots and Eric Schmidt of Google.
We highly recommend spending some time checking out this book, the better the quality of your sleep the better life you'll live, it's as simple as that.
