Sleep Tune Up
Be happier, perform better, and enjoy life more with proven sleep strategies.
This presentation will speak to sleep and its laundry list of positive and negative side effects. Poor sleep habits have significant implications for entrepreneurs, their families, and day-to-day functioning.
Whether talking about children or adults, amount and quality of sleep can create ADHD-like symptoms, cognitive difficulties, irritability, depression, decreased job performance, faulty beliefs about one’s ability to sleep, and more.
Fortunately, there are several evidence-based behavioural strategies available to remediate sleeping problems. This presentation will review how many hours of sleep are needed at each stage of life, how to track your own sleep habits to determine necessary changes that are needed, and general good sleep hygiene practices. Walk away with specific interventions you can implement to get the amount of sleep you need and improve the quality of your work and home life.
