From Emmy Award-winning ABC News anchor/correspondent and former insomniac Diane Macedo comes a practical, user-friendly guide to getting better sleep. The Sleep Fix flips the switch on common advice, illuminating the reporter’s relentless search for how to get a good night’s sleep.

Roughly 30 per cent of the population is estimated to be living with insomnia, while many more unknowingly suffer from other sleep disorders. In The Sleep Fix, Macedo aims to change that with perspective-shifting research and easy-to-implement solutions based not just on science and experts but also on her own years-long struggle.

As an early-morning reporter and overnight news anchor, Macedo learned the hard way how valuable sleep is. The longer she struggled, the more her health deteriorated. Desperate, she tried standard sleep tip after standard sleep tip, but nothing worked – instead, it made her worse.

Finally, after developing a tolerance to sleeping pills, Macedo decided to attack the problem as a journalist, interviewing sleep experts from all over the world to get to the bottom of what really keeps us from sleeping – and the various ways to fix those problems.

As Macedo explains, the solution to catching zzz’s often isn’t about giving up caffeine or swearing off screens before bed. With down-to-earth explanations and humour, she instead teaches us how to:
*Understand sleep biology
*Identify sleep obstacles
*Flag sleep myths and separate fact from fiction
*Try counterintuitive approaches
*Shift our mindset

Most importantly, Macedo – a busy working mum – teaches us how to adjust and fit these solutions into our everyday lives. Offering expert wisdom, cutting-edge research, intimate sleep stories from public figures and actionable advice, The Sleep Fix is the tell-it-like-it-is guide that this sleep-deprived world has been waiting for.
