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.

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!
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.
Really useful points on how to improve your sleep.
As a Chiro I see lots of patients who suffer from poor sleep, I will be recommending this book for them.
Lots of up to date references and easy to apply tips.
In the UK there is a non toxic brand of mattress called natramat as an alternative to the US brand recommended in the book.
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.
Really enjoyed this book, I knew sleep affected me and my health but I had no idea the extent of this. I was gripped all the way through because I could relate to all the stories and also found the tips and techniques something I could easily incorporate into my daily life.
Definitely recommend giving this a go!
I loved all the tips this book had to over so many wow moments when finding out about how influential sleep is to living a healthy life!
I have only just started to implement a few suggestions and eager to put more into practice.
It's easy listening, handy tips and complementary PDF make it something I will recommend to everybody.
I have been struggling with a proper consistent sleep routine since I did a temporary night shift at my place of work 2+ years ago.
I'm glad I came accross this book as I can put the many helpful tips into practice and sleep smarter. Also Shawns narration of his book is brilliant
more than I had expected. Since I have red a lot about weightloss and health this was a super summing it all up. This ideas put into practice will help me a lot. I have always felt that getting up around 5:15 is perfect for me - now I understand why! Thank you!'
"Some parts good, but be careful"
There was some great content in here, but it was surrounded by far too much pseudoscience and throwing around individual studies' results as "truth." You know it's not trustworthy when you keep hearing things being thrown around as fact, such as with the word "causes," rather than "correlates with."
The author was really easy to listen to, however. The only other thing I got tired of is how often he said to check out more info in the bonus resource guide. I bet there's more in that "bonus" guide than this whole book (for better or worse)
"Mostly Hype and Sales"
There is quite a bit that I am taking from this book. One thing is that I need to do more research because there is a good deal in here that is fairly bogus and unthought through. Suggesting that people dim the lights in their house is actually dangerous. Most homes have too little light to be safe. And lighting candles is not going to help. He also cites some pretty questionable practices such as earthing, which has been significantly debunked by real science. There is lots of bonus material, all aimed at selling you something. I hate the format but I have take a few things from this book that I am using an that are helping me achieve better sleep.
"Mostly good info"
Most of the information in this book seems good, and matches my understanding from a wide variety of other sources. Unfortunately the author includes references to junk pseudo-science about "grounding", and very inaccurate / misleading information about the effects and amelioration of EMF ... those sections can safely be ignored. Still, the inclusion of such poorly researched material leaves me doubting the accuracy of the other sections. Cross referencing with other trustworthy sources is highly recommended.
"What I needed to create a great morning and bed time routine"
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.
I honestly assumed I knew everything he was going to say, because I am a big advocate of sleep already, but there were still many aha moments that will for sure improve my life. Already I am sleeping better than I have in a loooooong time. So worth the read from start to finish.
"Helpful and enjoyable!"
I've been listening to Shawn's podcast for about a year now and figured I'd give the book a try. He NEVER disappoints. I tried combining several of the tips and immediately got great results. I love that it's Shawn narrating, and can feel his positivity through this book. Worth every penny.
"its your time now..."
Shawn knows his s***. just grab it, listen to it and feel life get'n better by every shuteye you get.
I completely changed my sleep lifestyle and enjoying great sleep as a result. Thank you
"Highly suggested to read this book"
I highly suggest reading this book! He has some very awesome ideas how to get some better sleep that are simple. As well as some that are more complicated but effective. On the downside I had to take to many notes because I know too little about having proper sleep. Haha
This was a great book to listen to...and I plan to re listen. I love that the author is the one reading the book and that he has great vocal delivery. It's like one of his podcasts but superhero version. Very motivating and easy reasonable tips that anyone can do! Thanks for this book Shawn!
