Are you getting enough sleep?
Sleep is one of the most important but least understood aspects of our life, wellness, and longevity. Compared to the other basic drives in life like eating or drinking, the purpose of sleep remained elusive.
Despite the numerous reminders on the perils of deprivation, we still live in a world where countless people don't get enough sleep. There exists a stigma surrounding naps or an early good night's rest, and even worse, many people wear deprivation as a badge of productivity.
Why We Sleep: Unlocking The Power of Sleep and Dreams is equally fascinating and terrifying. Written by a leading scientific expert and Director of UC Berkeley’s Sleep and Neuroimaging Lab, Professor Matthew Walker, the book takes its readers into a groundbreaking exploration of sleep, and explains the different lasting effects it leaves in our lives.
