Recently I was asked to facilitate a Sleep Workshop for 45 CSIRO personnel, as part of their Workplace Health and Well-being day.
Sleep is so much a part of good health, sometimes it can get over-looked in the busy-ness of work and to-and-from home, especially when asked to work longer hours than usual, in different seasons. Sleep is also important to not only our physical well-being, but also to our emotional well-being.
If we get adequate, good quality sleep , we tend to function better at work, make better decisions, better life-style choices (eg, less junk food, less alcohol etc). We are also more alert and less grumpy!
Most of us know this already, but are we all doing anything about lack of sleep when it occurs?
