Description

Sleep is the foundation of our busy modern-day lives, yet we are getting less and less of it. With 2/3rds of us not getting enough, we are facing a sleep loss epidemic. We need sleep to be productive, but we also need sleep for our long term mental and physical health. Sleep is vital in reducing our risk of many of today’s illnesses from dementia to cancer, heart disease to depression.

Berit Lewis from Thriving Life has joined up with Kalpee Howard from Living Well Unlocked, a former UK medical doctor and now science communicator to provide a unique multidisciplinary 4-week course based on the latest scientific evidence exploring different ways to improve your sleep.

Our aim is firstly to help you understand the key science-based facts about sleep, what is sleep and why do we need to sleep. We look at key areas such as lifestyle, our surroundings and explore changes that you can make to sleep well.

We also look at ways to deal with those sleepless moments in the middle of the night and how to manage those negative thoughts and emotions using mindfulness techniques. We will teach you how to focus on the body and train the mind to accept rather than resist the thoughts and feelings that keep you awake, to help you change your relationship with the thoughts that keep you awake.

The course  will take place on 4 Tuesday evenings starting 4th of February,11th and 18th Feb and 3rd of March 2020 at 18.45-20.45.
