Sleep

Sleep quality is one of the top indicators of overall health and these courses will help staff prioritise sleep hygiene both personally and professionally, in their caring roles. 

  • Introduction to Sleep

  • Anxiety and Sleep Disorders

"Sleep is the best meditation" - Dalai Lama 

We spend approximately 25 years of our life asleep, yet very few people could explain why we sleep, how we sleep, and what we need to do in order to enjoy a good night's sleep. This course will help staff answer all these questions and more - covering an introduction into sleep disorders, good sleep hygiene practices and the intricacies of the sleep-wake cycle.
