We are in the midst of a sleep deprivation crisis, writes Arianna Huffington, the co-founder and editor in chief of The Huffington Post. And this has profound consequences ‚Äì on our health, our job performance, our relationships and our happiness. What is needed, she boldly asserts, is nothing short of a sleep revolution.¬† Only by renewing our relationship with sleep can we take back control of our lives.
In her bestseller¬†Thrive,¬†Arianna wrote about¬†our need to redefine success through well-being, wisdom, wonder, and giving.¬†Her discussion of the importance of sleep as a gateway to this more fulfilling way of living¬†struck such a powerful chord that she realized the¬†mystery and¬†transformative¬†power of sleep called for a fuller investigation.
The result is a sweeping, scientifically rigorous, and deeply personal exploration of sleep from all angles, from¬†the history of sleep, to the role of dreams in our lives,¬†to the consequences of sleep deprivation, and¬†the new¬†golden age of sleep science that is revealing¬†the vital role sleep plays in¬†our every waking moment and¬†every aspect of our health ‚Äì¬†from¬†weight gain,¬†diabetes,¬†and heart disease to cancer¬†and Alzheimer‚Äôs.¬†¬†
In¬†The Sleep Revolution, Arianna shows how our cultural dismissal of sleep as time wasted compromises our health and our decision-making and undermines our work lives,¬†our personal lives –¬†and even our sex lives.¬†She explores all the latest science on what exactly is going on while we sleep and dream.¬†¬†She takes on the dangerous sleeping pill industry, and all the ways our addiction to technology disrupts our sleep. She also¬†offers a range of recommendations and tips from leading scientists on how we can get better and more restorative sleep, and harness its incredible power.
In today’s fast-paced, always-connected,¬†perpetually-harried¬†and sleep-deprived world, our need for a good night‚Äôs sleep is more important ‚Äì and elusive — than ever.¬†The Sleep Revolution¬†both sounds the alarm on our worldwide sleep crisis and provides a detailed road map to the great sleep awakening that can help¬†transform our lives, our communities, and our world.
