Availability: Ready to download

Hello Sleep is a practical and compassionate guide to having a better relationship with sleep and overcoming insomnia from Jade Wu, an experienced expert in behavioral sleep medicine. For many people who have trouble sleeping, each night is an anxious odyssey where getting a good night’s sleep feels like a battle to win rather than a basic biologic process. Hello Sleep is a Hello Sleep is a practical and compassionate guide to having a better relationship with sleep and overcoming insomnia from Jade Wu, an experienced expert in behavioral sleep medicine. For many people who have trouble sleeping, each night is an anxious odyssey where getting a good night’s sleep feels like a battle to win rather than a basic biologic process. Hello Sleep is a guide for people with insomnia to help them shift their relationship with sleep, so that it stops being a battle and starts being enjoyable and natural again. It is a practical, self-guided tour through evidence-based interventions for chronic insomnia, including cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I), phototherapy, chronotherapy, mindfulness-based approaches, and medication tapering. Jade Wu is a behavioral sleep medicine specialist and researcher who has helped hundreds of patients over a period of ten years. She provides in-depth but down-to-earth scientific explanations of how sleep and insomnia work; anecdotes about real patients’ experiences with overcoming insomnia; rationale for why the evidence-based interventions help; and tips for how to problem-solve common pitfalls, along with tailored recommendations for special circumstances (e.g., pregnancy/postpartum, menopause, chronic pain, depression, older adults etc.). Wu’s practical recommendations support a philosophical theme: Sleep is a friend, and it’s the nurturing of our relationship with this friend—rather than an anxious nightly battle—that will give us sustainable sleep health. Hello Sleep is not a rigid set of rules or a one-size-fits-all approach. Wu believes this can make things worse for those with insomnia issues, making what was once easy and intuitive into something effortful and elusive. Instead, this book treats insomniacs with respect, by giving them knowledge and empowering them to trust themselves and their own sleep.

    This book was fascinating and so helpful. It debunks so many of the ideas people give for attaining better sleep and backs up the claims with research. This is a well-researched book. I have learned so much reading this book, and now I’m going to go through it slower as I work through the steps to better sleep! Highly recommend for those who struggle with insomnia!

    I thought that this was a wonderful book! I normally struggle with sleeping and staying on a healthy sleep schedule, and I thought that this was a very well-researched and wonderfully written book! I learned so much about the science of sleep, and it's amazing to learn that something we all take for granted every night is so complex and nuanced. Although the book doesn't give you a definite answer on how to solve sleep problems (and I think that is for the best, as things that may work for one p I thought that this was a wonderful book!

Although the book doesn't give you a definite answer on how to solve sleep problems (and I think that is for the best, as things that may work for one person may not help the next) it certainly gives you some general tips and guidance for you to follow. Overall, I think that this is a very thorough and well-written book, and I look forward to applying what I have learnt to better my sleeping habits!

    I’ve suffered from some insomnia for years now and this book was helpful in giving some general guidance and ways to try to combat that. I am excited to try the techniques I wrote down. I also love how the book emphasizes being gentle on yourself and that forcing sleep is actually the worst way to get it.

    Hello Sleep is full of practical advice, some I'd never heard before in all of my years seeking an insomnia cure. It's backed up by research. Also interesting were the personal stories and examples throughout the book. If you've suffered from lack of sleep and nothing has worked, pick up this book.
