Event description
Learn how to transform your sleeping patterns and lead a healthier, more fulfilling life, in this fascinating workshop with Kate Mikhail.

About this event

It goes without saying that sleep is not only essential for leading a healthy life - it is the very foundations from which all life grows. It benefits every aspect of your day, your week and your future; having a healthy sleeping pattern can boost your immune system, maintain your heart health, reduce stress levels, and can even prolong your life. But in our technologically-driven, fast-paced, pandemic world, how can you switch off and settle down?

In this fascinating and essential masterclass with ex-chronic insomniac Kate Mikhail, you will not only discover the evidence-backed health benefits of a good night’s sleep, you will also learn how to transform your nightly cycle - and by extension, your life.

Beginning with the wider context of the benefits of sleep, Kate will demonstrate exactly how good sleep is something that can be learned, introducing you to a unique 360 approach that will enable you to understand what may be causing disruption to your sleep patterns, and the direct action you can take to change it.

You will explore the biology and neuroscience of sleep, in digestible and relatable ways, and will be enlightened to the practical tips you can employ to synchronise your circadian clocks, balance your hormones and direct the mind-body loop to boost your sleep, health and wellbeing.

Ultimately, you will come away from this workshop with the invaluable potential to lead a healthier, more fulfilling life - and all beginning from your bed.
