Summary
Even though many experts recommend eight hours of sleep a night, getting that much rest often seems impossible. This program offers ten scientific ways to get quality sleep, and more of it. These techniques include sleep restriction programs for people with insomnia, explained by Professor Colin Espie of the University of Glasgow's Sleep Centre; fasting to beat jet lag, presented by Harvard's Dr. Patrick Fuller; and simple, full-body relaxation techniques, demonstrated by physiotherapist Sammy Margo. Features celebrities such as comedian Russell Kane, world-record-setting yachtswoman Dee Caffari, and British TV presenter Kate Silverton.
