Das große Buch vom Schlaf

Author: Matthew Walker Narrator: Uwe Thoma Release Date: December 2020

Der New York Times und internationale Bestseller! Prof. Dr. Matthew Walker, Direktor des Schlaflabors der UC Berkeley, teilt seine bahnbrechenden Forschungserkenntnisse und verdeutlicht die enorme Wirkung der Nachtruhe. Denn Schlaf ist einer der wichtigsten und zugleich unterschätztesten Aspekte eines gesunden, langen und glücklichen Lebens. Der richtige Schlaf macht uns klüger, attraktiver, schlanker, beugt Krebs und Demenz vor, stärkt das Immunsystem und verringert das Risiko für Herzinfarkt und Diabetes. In diesem Hörbuch erfahren Sie: • woher weiß Ihr Körper, wann es Zeit zum Schlafen ist; • warum leiden Sie an Jetlag, wenn Sie in eine andere Zeitzone gereist sind, und wie lässt sich dieser Jetlag überwinden; • woher wissen Sie, ob Sie genug schlafen; • wie sollen wir unsere Schlafgewohnheiten ändern, um die Schlafqualität wesentlich zu erhöhen. In seinem Buch beantwortet Walker wichtige Fragen zum Thema Schlaf: Wie wirken sich Koffein und Alkohol auf den Schlaf aus? Was passiert wirklich während des REM-Schlafs? Warum verändern sich unsere Schlafmuster im Laufe des Lebens? Wie wirken gängige Schlafmittel und können sie langfristige Schäden verursachen? Walker erklärt, wie wir den Schlaf nutzen können, um das Lern-, Stimmungs- und Energieniveau zu verbessern, Hormone zu regulieren, Krebs, Alzheimer und Diabetes vorzubeugen, die Auswirkungen des Alterns zu verlangsamen, die Langlebigkeit zu erhöhen, die Bildung und die Lebensspanne unserer Kinder zu verbessern und die Effizienz, den Erfolg und die Produktivität unserer Unternehmen zu steigern.

Why We Sleep: The New Science of Sleep and Dreams Audiobook

Why We Sleep: The New Science of Sleep and Dreams

Author: Matthew Walker Narrator: John Sackville Release Date: December 2017

THE #1 SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER TLS, OBSERVER, SUNDAY TIMES, FT, GUARDIAN, DAILY MAIL AND EVENING STANDARD BOOKS OF THE YEAR 2017 Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker, read by John Sackville. Includes a bonus PDF of graphs and diagrams. Sleep is one of the most important aspects of our life, health and longevity and yet it is increasingly neglected in twenty-first-century society, with devastating consequences: every major disease in the developed world - Alzheimer's, cancer, obesity, diabetes - has very strong causal links to deficient sleep. Until very recently, science had no answer to the question of why we sleep, or what good it served, or why its absence is so damaging to our health. Compared to the other basic drives in life - eating, drinking, and reproducing - the purpose of sleep remained elusive. Now, in this book, the first of its kind written by a scientific expert, Professor Matthew Walker explores twenty years of cutting-edge research to solve the mystery of why sleep matters. Looking at creatures from across the animal kingdom as well as major human studies, Why We Sleep delves in to everything from what really happens during REM sleep to how caffeine and alcohol affect sleep and why our sleep patterns change across a lifetime, transforming our appreciation of the extraordinary phenomenon that safeguards our existence. 'Vital ... a life-raft' Guardian 'A top sleep scientist argues that sleep is more important for our health than diet or exercise' The Times 'It had a powerful effect on me' Observer 'I urge you all to read this book' Times Higher Education

Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams Audiobook

Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams

Author: Matthew Walker Narrator: Steve West Release Date: October 2017

The first sleep book by a leading scientific expert-Professor Matthew Walker, Director of UC Berkeley's Sleep and Neuroimaging Lab-reveals his groundbreaking exploration of sleep, explaining how we can harness its transformative power to change our lives for the better. Sleep is one of the most important but least understood aspects of our life, wellness, and longevity. Until very recently, science had no answer to the question of why we sleep, or what good it served, or why we suffer such devastating health consequences when we don't sleep. Compared to the other basic drives in life-eating, drinking, and reproducing-the purpose of sleep remained elusive. But an explosion of scientific discoveries in the last twenty years has shed new light on this fundamental aspect of our lives. Now, preeminent neuroscientist and sleep expert Matthew Walker gives us a new understanding of the vital importance of sleep and dreaming. Among so many other things, within the brain, sleep enriches our ability to learn, memorize, and make logical decisions. It recalibrates our emotions, restocks our immune system, fine-tunes our metabolism, and regulates our appetite. Dreaming mollifies painful memories and creates a virtual reality space in which the brain melds past and present knowledge to inspire creativity. Walker answers important questions about sleep: how do caffeine and alcohol affect sleep? What really happens during REM sleep? Why do our sleep patterns change across a lifetime? How do common sleep aids affect us and can they do long-term damage? Charting cutting-edge scientific breakthroughs, and synthesizing decades of research and clinical practice, Walker explains how we can harness sleep to improve learning, mood, and energy levels; regulate hormones; prevent cancer, Alzheimer's, and diabetes; slow the effects of aging; increase longevity; enhance the education and lifespan of our children, and boost the efficiency, success, and productivity of our businesses. Clear-eyed, fascinating, and immensely accessible, Why We Sleep is the crucial account on sleep that will forever change readers' minds on the subject. **Contact Customer Service for Additional Material**
