Sleeping Well: Getting the Essential Rest You Need

Speaker: Diana Ford, MA, LPC
August 27, 2014 from Noon to 1:00 p.m.
UAB Hospital West Pavilion Conference Center Board Room

Have you ever wondered if you are doing everything you can do to get optimal sleep for your well-being? Or wondered how to help your kids sleep or if they are getting enough rest? Are you having trouble sleeping? Waking up feeling tired or having trouble staying awake at work?  Many people take their sleep habits for granted without considering the impact on their daily lives.  Sleep (or lack of sleep) impacts your mood, your ability to manage stress, and your performance in all areas of life.  Diane Ford will address many common sleep questions including:
  • Why do humans absolutely need to sleep?
  • How do the sleep needs of adults and children compare?
  • What gets in the way of good sleep?
  • How can you improve your sleep?
