Sleep is vitally important to our wellbeing, and can be impacted greatly by the stressors of everyday life, affecting most of us at some point in our lives.
Managing Stress for Improved Sleep, offered via videoconference on all campuses, will be facilitated by an experienced counsellor from AccessEAP, the University’s Employee Assistance Provider. This seminar provides practical information for understanding the factors which impact on our sleep, particularly the effect of stress.
Participants will understand more about signs of stress, and the triggers for difficulty in falling asleep or staying asleep. The session will then explore strategies for managing stress, with a focus on managing unhelpful thinking, prioritising, and relaxation. While participants will also learn about environmental and lifestyle choices impacting on sleep, the focus of this session is on the mind itself and tips for getting into to a state of relaxation.
The session will use a blend of exercises and information to support participants’ learning.
