Sleep is essential for life. As self-care has taken on a heightened focus during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are acutely aware of the importance of healthy sleep for our physical, mental, and immune health, not to mention our safety and productivity.
On August 10th, join the Genos Spotlight Series and Nancy Rothstein, MBA, The Sleep Ambassador®, for her masterclass titled ‘Intelligent Sleep: A Key to Optimal Living’. Recognizing that only you can sleep for you, Nancy’s goal is to empower people to enhance their sleep so they can live at their best.
What will the session be about?
We all know how important it is to get good sleep, not only for our physical wellbeing but also for our mental health, prioritizing sleep is key to your wellbeing. Yet for many, good sleep can be elusive. Recognizing that only you can sleep for you, it is important that each of us are empowered to get the best sleep we can.
In this session, Nancy explores why sleep matters, what compromises sleep, and discusses new techniques and guidelines you can use to get sustainably optimal sleep.
An understanding of basic sleep science offers a foundation from which to make healthy behavioural and environmental choices to support good sleep. Sleep science continues to evolve even though we’ve been sleeping since the beginning of time. Contrary to historical beliefs, sleep is actually a very active state, during which virtually every one of your organs is at work. When it looks like you’re still on the outside, you’re really like a city that never sleeps on the inside.
“Plain and simple, the science is clear. Sleep is essential for physical, mental, emotional and your brain health.”
Think about when you’re sick and you say to yourself; ‘I’ll see if I can sleep it off’. Sleep helps to support your immune system, allowing your body to rest and restore itself. Similarly, there is research showing that sleep can help prevent a number of diseases like diabetes and depression. However, it’s important to remember that whether we are unwell or not, sleep is essential for life.
