 Sleep Tight! Supporting Academic Success

through Proper Sleep Hygiene

Synopsis:

Sleep is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle!  Come learn how to effectively use 1/3 of your life to create success in the other 2/3. We will learn about how proper sleep hygiene can fuel academic, athletic, and emotional wellness across the lifespan.  Our fast-paced lives and constant access to technology have set the conditions for a  “brain toxic” environment.  Together we will learn and discuss how to create a healthy habit of “counting sheep.”  Until then, sleep tight!
