Sleep Tight: The Smarter Way To Sleep, Dreams, And Health is a nonfiction health and wellness book written by Luna Green. We all spend approximately one-third of our lives asleep, but what exactly are we doing when we sleep and do we really need to spend so much time in that state? Green addresses questions and concerns about sleep that have probably crossed just about everyone’s minds at some point or other. Do you really need so much sleep? Can you train yourself to need less sleep or work in long naps during the day to compensate for the late nights and early rising for work? Green discusses Chronic Sleep Deprivation and the health risks such a state can lead to, and she shares the reasons why having healthy sleep habits can really impact your health -- and in a good way. She demystifies REM cycles and differentiates between REM, NREM, and Deep Sleep cycles and explains how to attain sleep efficiency and quality sleep. Along the way, she discusses the pros and cons of different sleeping positions, relaxation methods to help when sleep is elusive, and the optimal form of a nap and its uses. Finally, she delves into dreams and dream states, sharing insights on the different types of dreams, including lucid dreaming, and the benefits one will gain from dreaming.
Luna Green’s Sleep Tight is a concise and comprehensive guide that is ideal for anyone who has wondered about sleep and sleep cycles. I’ve long been familiar with the concept of the “sleep bank” and the fact that the few hours of sleep one misses to attend a party on a work night have to be made up, but didn’t really understand the process and the implications of missing sleep and how important enough sleep actually is. Green’s discussion of REM and sleep cycles is informative and very useful, and I especially appreciated her chapter on dreams and dreaming, particularly her discussion of lucid dream states. Sleep Tight: The Smarter Way To Sleep, Dreams, And Health is a handy, informative, and eminently readable user manual for anyone who finds themselves asleep for hours every day, which is everyone, right? It’s most highly recommended.
