Sleep is vitally important to our health and wellbeing and the benefits of a good night’s shuteye are hard to overestimate. But why do some people struggle to sleep well?
Our facilitator will guide attendees to play ‘sleep detective’, ticking off their personal checklist of potential sleep thieves, from nocturnal blood sugar fluctuations to hormonal reasons.
We’ll take a look at:
• The role of sleep: why it’s vital for health, happiness and performance
• The effects a lack of sleep can have on our physical and mental health
• The key nutrition and lifestyle factors which influence your sleep quality, whether it’s the anxiety which many are experiencing during the Covid-19 pandemic or others you may not be familiar with such as nutrient intake and timing
• 8 practical steps you can take to help you achieve sound, restorative sleep
