Everything You Wanted to Know about Sleep (but were Afraid to Ask)

We spend one-third of our lives asleep and nearly as much time worrying about how much sleep we are getting – or not getting. Sleep is critical for the optimization or maintenance of nearly every aspect of human mental and physical health, and inadequate sleep has been linked to disruptions in mood, metabolism, cognition, heart function, and immunity, among others. Worrying about it makes it worse, so finding the balance is a crucial step in overall sleep health.

Join us for a noontime webinar with a Stanford sleep expert to learn more about this vital process. You will learn about the basic biology behind sleep, common sleep problems, the utility (or lack thereof) of wearables, and ways to improve sleep. Bring your questions and leave with a deeper understanding and practical tools to help you get a better night’s sleep.

This class will be recorded and a one-week link to the recording will be shared with all registered participants. Attend the live session or listen to the recording within one week to receive incentive points.
