Sleep Your Way to Health and Happiness
Good sleep is critical to a healthy lifestyle. Studies have shown that poor sleep is linked to higher body weight, greater risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, inflammation, and depression, while good sleep can improve concentration and productivity, athletic performance, and immune function. Yet for many of us, a good’s night sleep remains an elusive dream. One study by the CDC found that more than a third of American adults are not getting enough sleep or good quality sleep on a regular basis.
Join us in this free noontime webinar to explore the science of sleep. Learn how sleep is related to the core pillars of health — exercise, diet, and stress resilience. Gain information about what constitutes good sleep and how to spot common sleep disruptions. Finally, learn evidence-based techniques to improve sleep, leading to better health, resiliency, and quality of life.
This class will be recorded and a one-week link to the recording will be shared with all registered participants.
