The National Institutes of Health (NIH) considers sleep disorders a serious public health concern among about 70 million Americans, with an estimated 60% having chronic sleep problems. Sleep-related issues add up to almost $16 billion in national health-care costs, not to mention accidents, loss of productivity, and even weight problems associated with a lack of quality sleep.
Sleep is usually the first sacrifice we make when life gets busy, or busier. “I’ll sleep when I’m dead,” is a common refrain. Unfortunately one of the best ways to protect your health and your energy is to get enough restful sleep.
We all know about the importance of sleep for body maintenance and repair, but its effects are far reaching into our hormone regulation, digestion, memory, focus, mood, and even weight maintenance.
If you find yourself wondering how to ensure the best sleep possible without relying on sleep meds, consider learning about how to utilize nutrition, herbs, and lifestyle modifications to help you fall asleep faster and get better quality sleep. In this anything-but-soporific, interactive lecture, you will also learn about what happens when we sleep, how to nap and snooze properly, and you’ll leave with plenty of tips and ‘sleep homework’ to try immediately.
