Shawn how to improve our sleep quality has really shown immediate benefits. From having more energy throughout our day for us to keep up with our active children, to building a better relationship with my amazing wife (after 17yrs and counting, we seek out everything to stack the cards in our favor to maintain a healthy relationship). Shawn has an innate way of simplifying things, making the 21 strategies extremely practical for everyday people. I strongly urge anyone and everyone to buy the book and begin using the strategies immediately, may it find you in the best health and provide you with added benefits

NOT JUST FOR INSOMNIACS! Shawn Stevenson does it again! I have pretty good sleep habits, but I picked up Sleep Smarter because I truly love the science-backed information in Shawn Stevenson’s podcast, The Model Health Show, which is always chock full of great information that I can implement in my daily life. If I’ve learned anything from the podcast, its that a person’s health and wellness is made up of more than just eating well and exercise. Sleep Smarter not only offers great tools you can use immediately to get better sleep, it also discusses in depth how sleep is critical for overall health of the body and mind. Although getting good sleep is important to me, I was most interested in how sleep affects a person’s overall wellness, including weight management, stress management, and daily living, and this book did not disappoint! I was shaken to find out that one night of sleep deprivation can make a person as insulin sensitive as a person with type 2 diabetes. This book doesn’t just give tips and tricks for better sleep (which are very helpful and easy to implement). Sleep Smarter dives head first into how sleep affects weight management, how the body functions, hormones, daily performance, and much more. If your goal isn’t necessarily just sleeping better, but is for overall health and wellness, this book is for you! I am not normally a reviewer, but this information is too good not to share with others. I genuinely hope that others pick this book up and give it a read. The information contained in Sleep Smarter can make a real difference in your life.

This book is well written and entertaining with actionable recommendations that will immediately impact your sleep. Shawn describes the science behind every recommendation (in layman's terms) and how it can impact your overall health. This book is for those just beginning a health journey, or those seasoned veterans who want to take health and fitness to the next level! I also love that I can apply and teach these techniques to my children and instill these good habits for their lives!

If you are in pursuit of optimal health, sleep is a key component. This book has improved the quality of my sleep and I KNOW it will do the same for you! Shawn does a great job of presenting a lot of heavy hitting information into a simplified and easy to read format, making it easy for everyone to understand and apply the principles he presents into their daily routine. Highly recommended!

I would have appreciated reviews from real people and not those either paid or those that Shawn asked to write in. Way to 'sales-pitchy' and you can tell not authentic reviews. The book was o.k. not amazing. I think you can get much of what he writes at free websites-very basic and does not really help if you are truly sleep-deprived
Josh_Mellman More than 1 year ago
Shawn Stevenson has created an invaluable resource with Sleep Smarter. Sleep is so essential to our health, yet we often sacrifice it for work, play, or Netflix binging. To begin with, Shawn has reminded us about the importance of sleep. Sleep Smarter goes far beyond that though with so many practical tips on how to improve your sleep, from how to handle caffeine, to what time to go to bed at night, to the importance of nutrition. This book is fluff-free, it's well-researched and is full of real ways you can get better sleep. Thank you Shawn for sharing this information. I believe Sleep Smarter is a must-read for anyone who wants to improve their health. I highly recommend this book.
