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.

This course is ideal for anyone looking to improve their sleep quality.

  • This is a short course about sleep deprivation but I have learned three important things from the course and scientific information on the website. I usually suffer from the negative effects of sleep deprivation and are trying to avoid it in my life....
  • A short course which explains why so many of us do not get enough sleep in today's busy society and heavy use of screens. Also explained sleep cycles and the importance of sleep.

    Common solutions were discussed, but not a lot was offered for people who tried them but still have trouble sleeping.
  • This is a great Teach-out which helped me to understand different sleep patterns. Also, got to know about why sleep is important, how it works and how it indirectly impacts our health and lifestyle. The contents of this teach-out are also crisp and interesting.
