5 Books On Sleep To Help You Sleep

If you suffer from insomnia, you can try several natural solutions such as deep stretching, meditation, drinking a cup of soothing tea or listening to soft music to fall asleep. However, if you want to delve deeper into what obstructs your sleep and what are the causes for better sleep, there are actually many books you can read on the science of sleep. Here are books you can get in Singapore to help you sleep better. 

1. Change Your Schedule, Change Your Life

Change Your Schedule, Change Your Life

Circadian rhythms are biological processes that give us jet lag, or make us night owls or early birds. But just a few of us know how these diurnal patterns actually affect our overall health. Our genetic clocks control us more than we realise and small changes can make the difference in effortlessly managing our weight, sleep, stress, to inflammation. Dr. Suhas Kshirsaga blends ancient ayurvedic wisdom with cutting-edge science with this handbook that comes with a 30-day plan to adjust your daily schedule for enhanced wellness.

2. The Little Book of Sleep

The Little Book of Sleep

The Little Book of Sleep is from sleep expert Dr Nerina Ramlakhan who explains why a good night’s sleep is essential in our technology driven world. The inviting colour illustrated book gives us a unique combination of Eastern and Western practices that includes yoga, ayurveda and mindfulness techniques with an abundance of advice and techniques to guide the reader on a personal journey to sleep.

3. Dreamland: Adventures In The Strange Science of Sleep

Dreamland: Adventures In The Strange Science of Sleep

Journalist David K. Randall crashed into a hallway wall one midnight when he began sleepwalking. That got him thinking about the nature of sleep and produced this investigation into the science of sleep.

Randall explores the research investigating those dark hours that we spend a third of our lives. Dreamland takes readers from military battlefields to children’s bedrooms to show that sleep isn’t as simple as it seems. The book explores why one sleep study changed the bookmakers’ odds for certain Monday Night Football games to whether women sleep differently from men.

4. Sleepyhead: The Neuroscience of A Good Night’s Rest

Sleepyhead: The Neuroscience of A Good Night’s Rest

Sleepyhead shares stories, historic accounts, scientific investigations and literary references in an engaging quest to understand what sleep is and why sleep is important for health. The author Henry Nicholls writes that the pace of modern society poses many threats to the quantity and quality of sleep. The book also shares a variety of sleep issues from circadian rhythm disorders to the common sleep apnea. Sleepyhead will help us understand the secrets to good sleep.

5. Why We Can’t Sleep: Women’s New Midlife Crisis

Why We Can’t Sleep: Women’s New Midlife Crisis

In this book, writer Ada Calhoun spoke to middle-aged Generation X women about their experiences as the generation raised to “have it all” and now sandwiched between the Boomers and Millennials. Today, facing midlife crisis, Gen X women are facing new problems from exhaustion, under-employment to being overwhelmed.

Unlike the other books on the science of sleep, this is about the cultural and political contexts of Gen X’s predicament in the U.S which keeps middle-aged women awake. Calhoun offers support and pragmatic advice for Gen X to move forward.
