  • Summary

  • The average person spends 26 years of their life sleeping, but most of us are still tired, all the time. The reality is, sleep is not a priority for most of us and even though we’re getting sleep, it might not be the type of sleep you need. Dr Tim Sharp, Dr Happy, introduces you to 10 simple daily habits to get better-quality sleep so you can achieve a happier and healthier life.

    Dr Tim Sharp is a clinical and consulting psychologist with three degrees in psychology and a distinguished career over several decades. He’s Australia’s very own 'Dr Happy' and the founder of The Happiness Institute.

Thank you for talking about this essential topic

As someone who needs a lot of sleep, but doesn't always get it, I'm so grateful Tim has offered these habits on such an essential topic. Down to earth and easy to implement, this is another stellar production that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Boring

Was really looking forward to listening to this audio book...the first 2 chapters have no information in them and is repetitive ..
I cannot get past chapter 3...having said that just this guys voice may help you to fall asleep..

Almost exactly no value

save yourself from the annoying style of narration and format. the actual content is something that might have been novel in the 1980s. simply read the title of each lesson and you will have already gained it's full value

too generalist health topics

This is a recap of how bad we are and then very generic and not always updated health advice.

So helpful

I had just listened to an audible book about insomnia by a different author, then this 10-habit series by Dr. Happy. I am so grateful that they both basically emphasized the same tenets, especially CBT. It has been so encouraging to hear him describe his patients Sonia and Paul, and how much I have felt the same struggles— I don’t feel so alone! I’m going to listen again and keep working on better sleep habits. Thank you very much!

"Dr Happy" more like Dr Condescending

What an annoying, whiney, patronising git. I'm up to ep 3 and it's like clickbait in audiobook form. He spends 15 minutes rehashing over the same message.

"if you want to sleep better, make it a priority. You should make sleep a priority if you want to sleep better..."

A load of old tripe.

@jamie moore

this message is for the Jamie Moore review. you are clearly someone who wants to get the results without the work and that isn't the fault of the book or the author/narrator.

Lots of talking, little said

After listening to episode 2 I figured the guy has got little to say, but wants to spread it out as much as possible. It's a real self help cliché.
I still got about 5 episodes in before I quit.
The points being made are so general you've probably already thought of them. Then they get repeated and rephrased until the episode is over. The only time he specifically directs you to something it's his social media.

Disappointing

I gave up after 3 chapters. Was hoping for real
Insights that could be used. This was more like stating the obvious. Don’t waste your time.

Good basics and plenty more

Yes, this does cover many of the basic problems that can undermine our attempts at sleep - but, as many of us make these errors, it's good to have them listed and explained clearly so we can see what we need to do to change our sleep habits for the better. Episode 8 is particularly good regarding anxiety and 'unhelpful' mindsets and thought processes...
