Stop skimping on sleep
What happens when you sleep and why that is so important?
Sleep is often the first casualty of our busy lives. We cut out an hour here and there in our quest to fit more into the day, working on the assumption that sleep is unproductive. Far from being at total rest during sleep, our bodies are intensely busy. When life gets busy, often the first thing we sacrifice is sleep. We’re racing to finish that project for work, so we rise an hour earlier than usual. Or we retire a little later each night as we squeeze in some latenight chores. We know sleep is important, but how important is it that we maintain a focus on proper rest. This topic explores how adequate sleep and peak productivity go hand in hand.
This topic will teach you about the biological processes which go on while we sleep and why they are vital to a healthy lifestyle.
The webinar will be available for all Optum employees to watch from Tuesday May 8th and will remain available for 30 days.
In addition to the webinar, we have created a useful handout which you can print out and refer back to. In this handout, we cover some of the key points in our presentation.
