Overview

As humans, we spend approximately one third of our lives sleeping. If we were to live for 75 years, we would spend a staggering 25 years of our life snoozing. But as the world grows busier and more technology-filled, we sometimes consider sleep more of a hassle than help.

Many people try to get the least amount of sleep possible in order to maximize their busy days. But we shouldn't underestimate the power of sleep because it's crucial to our health and wellbeing.

In his book Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams, Matthew Walker teaches us just how vital getting adequate sleep is, and what the consequences of sleep deprivation can be. As a professor of neuroscience and psychology at the University of California-Berkeley, and director of the Sleep and Neuroimaging Laboratory, he definitely knows his stuff. He explores the latest research and theories about the importance of sleep and the effects of sleep deprivation. He also offers tips for how to get more quality sleep in your life.
