Learn how to sleep better with these solutions and strategies
Sleep deprivation is a silent epidemic. Since the invention of the light bulb, we have been getting less sleep by prioritising work, school, socialising and screentime over the optimum amount of hours.
A lack of sleep and sleep disorders can lead to reduced productivity, road accidents and a range of health issues like depression and heart failure.
On this course, you will learn why sleep is important, how it works and how to break bad sleep habits. You will gain the knowledge and strategies to improve your own sleep and feel empowered to advocate for the sleep health of your community.
