When it comes to health, there is one criminally overlooked element: sleep. Good sleep helps you shed fat for good, stave off disease, stay productive, and improve virtually every function of your mind and body. That's what Shawn Stevenson learned when a degenerative bone disease crushed his dream of becoming a professional athlete. Like many of us, he gave up on his health and his body...until he decided there must be a better way. Through better sleep and optimized nutrition, Stevenson not only healed his body but also achieved fitness and business goals he never thought possible.
In Sleep Smarter, Stevenson shares easy tips and tricks to discover the best sleep and best health of your life. With his 14-Day Sleep Makeover, you'll learn how to create the ideal sleep sanctuary, how to hack sunlight to regulate your circadian rhythms, which clinically proven sleep nutrients and supplements you need, and stress-reduction exercises and fitness tips to keep you mentally and physically sharp.
Sleep Smarter is the ultimate guide to sleeping better, feeling refreshed, and achieving a healthier, happier life.

I loved the authors voice and learned a lot about sleep and why people say it's more important to workout in the morning than in the evening. I applied this book to my life and I feel amazing. I want to thank the author. I'm very grateful that I found this book.
Loved that Shawn got into details about how the body works..& how to correct bad habits to get on the road to deep, repairative sleep.
Shawn does an excellent job covering a multitude of subjects and their relation to optimizing sleep and thereafter ones entire health. I'm already recommending this one to all my friends. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
I'm a huge fan of Shawn Stevenson's podcast The Model Health Show and this was on point. I will listen to this a couple times to soak all the information in
As an insomniac for my entire life (yes, really), I found this book chocked full of wonderful bits of information: some reminders, many reinforcing what I'm currently doing, and more good advice.
I did have problems opening the file that came with the audible book. I get an error message. I would very much love to have the nuggets of information found on it.
Love it. Love Shawn. Love all he represents! His podcast is awesome too! It all makes sense. Everyone should read this. Just one thing I wish the last page was just a recap of all the major important factors
I would just recommend for people to read this at least twice.
Well put together! I loved all the top scientific studies and research he referred to, especially Katy Bowman's work, and all the jokes and puns he threw in kept it interesting :)
if your overall "everything" in a demanding life feels upside down... then one must start here! obesity depression type 2 diabetes and agitation and other food disorders are all very much interconnected to our internal "down time!" every chapter and strategy in this book is a gem of know-how! thanks Shawn for putting this out to the public domain ...
Everyone needs to read or listen to this book . Shawn Stevenson is an amazing human being, I always listen to his podcast the Model Health Show on iTunes or You Tube and have made many positive improvements to my life. He makes everything easy to understand and has all the scientific studies to back up his knowledge. This mans information on life needs to be heard by everyone!
"Really really great"
Loved it. Shaun reads it so well and it's helped me sleep better even though I've read books on sleep before and I listen to his podcast.
This book is a must read for anyone having trouble with their sleep, valuable information is parted tp improve your life, health, sleep, and general wellbeing.
"AWESOME BOOK - worth every minute"
I have done a lot of listening and reading around health and nutrition and every minute you spend listening/reading this book is 'money time' well spent!
Well presented facts, easy to follow, even if it you decide to make only small changes. Lots of tips to try and reasoning why things work. Thank you!
"Love this guy. Massive Value."
My husband has serious sleep problems which has had significant knock on effects with his overall health. I instinctively knew that pills were not treating the issue and would likely just add to his troubles, so i went searching for better answers. I found so much more than I had even hoped for in this book. The content and research behind it goes so far beyond what I expected of the topic. He gives actionable tips as well as an in depth education on how everything in our body works together. I took away so many nuggets even for myself (I thought I had this sleeping thing down- I was wrong). I'm now a serial listener to his podcast, The Model Health Show, and know I can turn on any episode and I'll learn something new. Couldn't recommend this book enough. Thank you Shawn for the work you do. You're not just inspiring change in me and my family, you're providing the road map and the tools.
"Contradictory and full of bro science"
I hardly think a house plant will significantly alter the oxygen to carbon dioxide ratio in the bed room. If that was your goal then asking your carbon dioxide producing partner to sleep in a separate room would have much greater impact. Thinking of something exciting before going to sleep to help you get out of bed in the morning seems contradictory. I remember being a child on Christmas eve, being excited about the next day certainly helps you to get up early with enthusiasm but hinders falling to sleep. There are much better books based on real science written by people clinically researching the subject which I found more informative.
