Throughout the book, Huffington provides a vast array of scientific evidence that helps readers acknowledge the vital importance of sleep and how it plays an essential role in people’s mental and physical health. One important factor I acquired from reading this amazing book on sleep was that it’s crucial for individuals to maintain a healthy diet and incorporate exercise into their daily regimen. Creating a healthy lifestyle, exercising, meditating and eating right can help enhance your quality of sleep and improve your overall health.
In the beginning of the book on page 38, Huffington discusses children and sleep; she reports that sleep deprivation affects behavioral development in the brain. Huffington goes on as she helps make the reader aware that children can also be sleep deprived and it is not always obvious. One fact that really grasped my attention when reading the book was the research she provided by Ohio State University, which states sleep deprivation can make a child hyperactive and can lead to a diagnosis of ADHD. ADHD is a common condition consistently diagnosed in young children and many doctors hand parents prescriptions regularly to treat children diagnosed with this condition. Could it be possible that a majority of these children are not receiving adequate sleep? Arianna devotes a whole chapter in chapter 7, which provides excellent sleep advice and guidance for moms and dads. As a mom of three, I found the information in this chapter extremely valuable and effective.
Sleep is not only necessary for well-being, but it is vital for each individual to receive adequate sleep so they can function well. Sadly, most people do not receive the amount of sleep that they need because of the various responsibilities that they have to do. With looming deadlines and hard tasks that need to be accomplished immediately, people tend to forget sleep and put their health on the line as they increase their risk of developing illnesses, diseases and even the possibility of death. The trick is how do we renew our relationship with sleep and transform our lives so we can have a life filled with happiness and productivity. Arianna Huffington teaches you in her book how to turn your life around with the tips, tools, strategies and techniques that are easy to incorporate in your life and very self-rewarding.
Huffington not only discusses how to sleep effectively, she shows you how to transform your entire life as you read this astonishing life changing book.
Arianna Huffington’s approach to sleep helped me realize that WE control our bodies. We can change the way we look, think and feel by making productive lifestyle changes.
In addition, through reading this book I realize no matter what age you are you can transform your life and create the life you always wanted for yourself. A life filled with happiness, inner peace, good health and strong inner strength that can lead you to endless opportunities and the ability to reach any level of success you desire.
