Archibald Hart’s book, Sleep, It Does a Family Good, offers help and hope for those who realize they need more sleep and those who don’t. He explains the role of sleep in all aspects of our lives. He offers suggestions on ways for every family member to get the sleep they need. He even gives simple tests to determine if you are getting enough. He discusses, not only, the sleep patterns of a busy mom wearing too many hats, but he also talks of sleepiness in our children and teens and what is going on in our lives to contribute to it. He relates marital problems, relationship problems, and even spiritual problems to sleep deprivation.
This book is packed full of great advice and exercises to rid us of our tiredness. How wonderful it will be to wake up every morning refreshed, well rested, and ready to conquer the day. He ends with exercises to help us end the day relaxed and ready to fall asleep quickly. I love his ideas - reflecting on good things that have happened in our day, letting go of aggravating things, and dwelling on God. What better way to end our day.
I loved this book, it is an easy read. I would recommend it to everyone, business man/woman, stay-at-home mom, single person, families, Christians, non-Christians, teens, and everyone in between. I believe it is never too late to start taking better care of ourselves, and with the advice in this book, we can conquer our sleep health.
I received this complimentary book from Tyndale Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion, thank you.
