Better Sleep
When counting sheep doesn't quite do the trick...

Sleep is undeniably an important part of our everyday life. It is an essential process that allows us to recharge and start our days feeling refreshed.

Although many people understand the importance of sleep, many of us still live through our days without enough of it to keep us functioning at our best. When we don’t get enough sleep or the quality of our sleep is poor, our ability to process information is hindered, which can negatively impact our daily functioning.

Poor sleep quality (often resulting in sleep deprivation), can have many adverse effects on the mind and body, like increased irritability, anxiety, depression, stroke, and heart-disease.

Reflecting on what led to those good-sleep nights can be the key to unlocking them indefinitely.

Tide includes a built-in diary so you can jot down all the factors that led to hours of deep rest along with sleep analysis to pick up on any patterns you might have missed.
An explosion of scientific discoveries in the last twenty years has shed new light on this fundamental aspect of our lives. Preeminent neuroscientist and sleep expert Matthew Walker gives us a new understanding of the vital importance of sleep and dreaming. Within the brain, sleep enriches our ability to learn, memorise, and make logical decisions.

It recalibrates our emotions, restocks our immune system, fine-tunes our metabolism, and regulates our appetite. Dreaming mollifies painful memories and creates a virtual reality space in which the brain melds past and present knowledge to inspire creativity.

Walker answers important questions about sleep: how do caffeine and alcohol affect sleep? What really happens during REM sleep? Why do our sleep patterns change across a lifetime? How do common sleep aids affect us and can they do long-term damage?
