We all know that sleep is important for optimal performance and health, but why is it so important? Join us and sponsor Dr. Arminta Phelps of Achieve Balance Chiropractic for this informative session on why we sleep.
Dive deep into how proper rest and sleep allows us to think, learn, make rational and logical decisions. It further resets our emotions, desire to eat and drink, replenishes our immune system and aids our metabolism. Dreaming is our private brand of virtual reality where our brains remember our past, look ahead to our futures and add a good dose of the present to stimulate our creative juices.
Based off the book Why We Sleep, by Dr. Mathew Walker, this session will be addressing sleep deprivation and other topics such as:
• The effects of alcohol and caffeine on our sleep.
• REM and NREM sleep
• Sleep patterns over time
• How sleep impacts our health, moods, energy
• Are sleep aids valuable or harmful?
• Can sleep prevent cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s?
• Can sleep add years to our life and make us more efficient and successful?
This event is free to active members | $10 for the public | $5 for childcare
