Book: Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker

Luke’s Reflection: ‘Well my friends… pull up your pillow and blanket, put your devices in another room, make sure the room is dark and cool and… go to sleep – for 8 hours a day! I can see why Matthew Walker’s book Why We Sleep, grounded in scientific research, is an international best seller. If you are up for a read that will confront your preconceived ideas about the importance of sleep, this is for you. I struggled to put this book down, learning about how I have been going wrong with sleep, and coffee drinking, for years. ‘Individuals fail to recognise how their perennial state of sleep deficiency has come to compromise their mental aptitude and physical vitality, including the slow accumulation of ill health’ (p. 137). Not only is this a truly fascinating read, it provides practical guidance on improving how and when we sleep. I’m now off for my siesta… ‘zzzzzzzzzzzz…..’
