"The Truth About Sleep"

the truth about sleep webinar

We all know quality sleep is essential for overall health, affecting both our physical and mental functioning. To put it simply, without enough sleep, the brain cannot function properly, with sleep deficiency linked to many chronic health conditions, such as diabetes, stroke, heart disease, dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Unfortunately, most adults — especially women from mid-life on — experience difficulty sleeping at some point in their lives, and for many, sleep quality can get worse with age.

Learn from leading experts about the benefits of good sleep hygiene, the practices that make for a good night’s sleep, and practical advice and solutions you can use right now to master better sleep hygiene.
