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.
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.
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
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.
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!'
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!
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.
"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.
Probably the most comprehensive book on how to live better hands down. A must read for all ages Bravo
"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)
"Everything You Could Want"
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. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
"Awesome read, life changer. Psalms 139:14 NWT"
Loved the book, incorporating the advice into my own life and recommending to friends. I knew some of the info but to hear it spelled out with all the research was incredible. I was a little turned off by the constant references to evolution and evolving. The author describes all these amazing processes of the body, the properties and laws governing the earth. Our intelligent, magnificent, creator, Jehovah who created us out of love deserves the credit for his creation. Will a pile of building materials every evolve into a house? Will a pile of metals rubber plastic ever evolve into a car? Obviously we know the answers to both. How could the incredible awe inspiring human body evolve from nothing. Not Possible, man does have a creator, oh and yes he is looking down and wants us to get great sleep.
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 ...
"Very informative and helpful!"
I listened to this in one day. It all just rings true. loved his voice and narration.
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.
"Who knew sleep was this important?"
I underestimated the importance of sleeping for a long time, this book really opened my eyes to how important sleeping aids to my health business decisions and well being.
I recently started working for sleep number and I thought I should research sleep I came across this autobiography and it changed everything I thought I knew. I would recommend this book to any and every person I know just to make sure they get the quality of life they deserve
