Sleep for Health

Sleep is an essential component for maintaining good health. Sleep helps restore both the body and mind. Lack of sleep contributes to higher levels of stress, irritability, lack of concentration, and even weight gain. This seminar will review the different phases of sleep (REM and non- REM) and describe common sleep problems or forms of insomnia. There can be many causes of sleep disturbance but the most frequent cause is worry and anxiety. This seminar will also outline what you can do to help prevent sleep disturbance and how best to handle the problem once you have gone to bed.
