My daughter and I visited our local library (which you should also do, your local library is not only a wealth of books, it most likely has great things going on throughout the year). She was looking to stock up on books to read this week so I meandered around with no specific topic or title in mind. I skimmed the drawing and painting books, a couple christian fiction titles, and then the librarian said, "Lisa, there are some new non-fiction." and pointed. I was drawn to this book, The Sleep Revolution.
I have a love one with neurological sleep issues and thought it would be a beneficial read to learn how I can better help her. BUT as I read the first chapter, guess what, I NEED THIS BOOK TOO! I'm thankful the librarian pointed me in this direction and look forward to reading it this week yet as I struggled to keep my eyes open last night, so I could read one more page, I started laughing. I laughed so much, my husband asked, "What is so funny?" To which I answered, "I'm forcing myself to stay awake to read a book about the importance of sleep." We both laughed, then I put the book down, turned off the light and went to bed.
How crazy was that? I haven't read the entire book yet but it's good so far and I think there are nuggets within to improve my health and sleep, as well as my loved one.
Does anyone struggle with sleep deprivation or an inability to sleep?
