We spend about one third of our lives asleep --but we still feel tired. Without a good eight hours, we end up head-bobbing at work and drinking enough coffee to fuel a jet!This book addresses the surprisingly complex issue of sleep in easy-to-tackle steps. This exhaustive guide brings shuteye within reach as it explains how to:
* Pay back a sleep debt
* Nap without throwing off nighttime rest
* Deter disturbing dreams
* Handle a sleepwalker (or night-eater!)
* Take a bite out of teeth grinding, and more!
It?s usually not a good thing for a book to put you to sleep. But this one-way ticket to dreamland will help you go from counting sheep to fast asleep!
