The Sleep Cure
Proven Strategies for A Good Night's Rest
Simon and Schuster
From the author of the New York Times bestselling book Intelligence for Your Life, this guide provides sleep-deprived readers with proven strategies for a good night’s rest.
Have you fought night after night to get the deep, rejuvenating sleep you need? Well look no further—in The Sleep Cure, recovered insomniac John Tesh offers valuable advice about a topic he has struggled with personally. Writing candidly and passionately, he provides examples and solutions from his own experience as well as tips from the most trusted experts on how to cure insomnia and other sleep issues.
The first sleep tip comes from an anthropologist at Emory University, Dr. Carol Worthman. She says we need to stop worrying about not getting eight solid hours of shut-eye each night. When you look at global populations and our own evolutionary history, she says, people naturally wake up two or three times a night. It’s the worrying that’s the problem. And here’s a sleep tip from psychiatrist Wendy Troxel: Couples need to practice healthy conflict resolution during the day in order to get better sleep at night. That’s because for a man, the quality of his sleep from the night before affects how he treats his spouse the next day. For a woman, how she interacts with her spouse during the day affects how she’ll sleep that night. So compromising and listening to your partner can lead to a better marriage—and much better sleep.
Combining the experts’ top solutions with Tesh’s own personal stories, The Sleep Cure has all the personal support and practical tips you need for curing sleeplessness. By following Tesh’s advice and honing in on key practices, you’ll be snoozing in no time!
