Sleep: Your Wake-Up Call

Book this workshop for your people

A good night’s sleep is essential for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. There is ample evidence that lack of sleep leads to short-term and long-term detrimental effects on health and wellbeing. In fact, sleep deprivation affects our biology and has a serious negative impact on our psychology.

No aspect of our biology is left unscathed by sleep deprivation. Sleep loss costs the UK economy over £30bn a year in lost revenue, or 2% of GDP.” — Prof M Walker.

Even a small loss of sleep leads to lower mood and impaired mental performance. When feeling drowsy, your brain is not as creative and won’t process information as quickly or retain important facts. The less sleep we get, the worse we perform on tasks that require attention and vigilance, recall is impaired, as are our decision-making abilities. The short-term productivity gains from skipping sleep to work are quickly washed away by its detrimental effects on cognitive performance and the ability to access higher-level brain functions for days to come.

One in three of us suffers from poor sleep, with stress, computers and taking work home often blamed”— NHS.

This session will combine research findings from various scientific disciplines, including psychology and neuroscience, to give insight into why sleep is so crucial for short and long-term health and our ability to perform and succeed in life. We will also explore strategies to help reduce the negative impact of poor sleep and improve cognitive recovery.
