Tired all the time? Strategies to promote good sleep – An Open Course

Tired all the time?

Strategies to promote a good night's sleep

A live, virtual 2-hour training course

This training session is limited to a maximum of 10 delegates.

Price: £125 + Vat per delegate.

This 2-hour virtual course looks at the unique challenges to sleeping patterns presented by the Covid-19 crisis and concludes with action planned improvements to increase delegate's sleep effectiveness.

2020 has seen a surge in home working, driven by the COVID-19 pandemic.  This has resulted in rising awareness of the importance of rest and sleep, particularly when the boundaries between work and life have become less clear.  What is clear is that a tired workforce is also likely to be a less productive, less motivated one.  

Coronasomnia is the new term used by some sleep experts to define difficulty sleeping as a result of the stress and anxiety caused by the current pandemic.

This workshop provides a space to discuss the issues around sleep, and to share best practice strategies to make a sustained improvement in the quantity and quality of sleep.  It is a highly interactive workshop, including exercises, personal reflection and action planning.

The content will encompass self-help checklists, and best practice guidance from the HSE and NHS, tailored for the surge in home working during 2020 amid the COVID-19 Pandemic.
