Are you getting “quality sleep”?
The importance of sleep is underappreciated. Many people wear lack of sleep as a badge of honor, believing that they can “catch up” when they miss it or that sleep is a waste of productive time. On the contrary—quality sleep helps to heal the body! While the amount of sleep needed varies for different people, an average of 7 to 9 hours provides the energy to meet daily activity demands. Many symptoms can arise due to poor quality sleep, including: fatigue, falls, problems with thinking; irritability, pain and weight gain. These symptoms can impact work and lifestyle and even worsen health conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. Yet, most people do not think of sleep as the culprit. So what do you do when you have checked with your physician and you still cannot seem to get to sleep, stay asleep or feel rested? Join us for this presentation as we share tools for quality sleep so that you have a positive effect on your heart, mind, body and spirit!
