Sleep is as important as food. Our bodies do not care if our mind thinks sleep is a “waste” of time in the midst of our busy lives; without sleep, we simply cannot survive. According to a 2010 survey, 30% of Malaysians sleep less than seven hours a day and sleep-related problems affect a third of us. The usual recommendation is seven to eight hours of sleep every night for adults. This is based on the amount of sleep the average person requires. That said, there are outliers, as some can get by with as little as four hours a night, while others, such as professional athletes, may need as much as 12 hours a night in order to recover enough to perform optimally the next day. Outliers, by definition, are unusual, so aiming for more sleep would be the right direction for most of us, especially in an era where life is so fast-paced that sleep deprivation is almost the norm. During sleep, numerous physiological changes occur in the body. Blood pressure and heart rate ... » Learn More about Ensuring that we get our quality sleep

In March 2017, Anthony Bourdain had an idea for a book but no time to write it. Since he started travelling and eating on camera with the Food Network’s A Cook’s Tour in 2000, the chef, frequent dropper of F-bombs and insatiable eater of delicious things had spent the majority of his time in the field, most recently for his CNN show, Parts Unknown. Bourdain and his team decided he would carve out some time to write in the summer of 2018, when he would have a few rare continuous weeks at home during a break in filming. That, of course, never happened, as Bourdain died by suicide in June 2018. Nevertheless, almost three years after his death, and after a pandemic that almost completely shut down international travel, Ecco will publish World Travel: An Irreverent Guide by Bourdain and his longtime assistant (or “lieutenant,” as he often referred to her), Laurie Woolever. “To me, there was no question that the book would go on,” Woolever said in a recent video call from her home in ... » Learn More about How do you write an Anthony Bourdain travel book without Anthony Bourdain?
