Given all the concern about insomnia and sleep deprivation, it's too easy to overlook the fact that there are exceptionally good sleepers among us. They tend not to get much media attention. In fact, I've found they are rather reticent to boast about their joyous relationship with sleep. Frequently, one of these great sleepers will approach me after I've done a presentation and actually whisper, "I love sleep."
It's too easy, even seductive to become preoccupied with the treatment of sleep problems -- with sleep techniques and sleep aides and sleep paraphernalia. It's not that these aren't necessary; it's just that they are rarely sufficient.
