Good sleep is essential for good health, but the modern diet and many of today’s lifestyles disrupt daily rhythms and undermine efforts to get the right amount of quality sleep. Insufficient or poor-quality sleep can lead to a wide range of health issues related to immune function, mood, memory, and mental function. In this chapter, I explain how to get enough quality sleep and overcome some of the most common conditions that may be preventing you from getting a good night’s rest.
