How well do you sleep? Did you know you can train yourself to sleep great every night? In this one-time class, we will delve into the rules for sleeping well each night. We will start with the science behind a good night's sleep and then what we can do to attain it each night. Class will begin with teaching about the circadian rhythm and class discussion will take place throughout our time as students discuss their own sleep habits and how to improve them. Questions and answers will be...
Defining the circadian rhythm. Areas of the brain affecting sleep. Four rules to sleeping better.
I am a Registered Polysomnographic Technologist and have been the Coordinator for a hospital-based sleep lab for the last 8 years. Prior to that, I taught middle and high school science classes for 10 years. I get to combine those two subjects in my Outschool classes. I am very passionate about sleep! Many of the complaints that doctors see coming into their offices during the day, actually have their origins in the patient's sleep. By improving our educational exposure to diseases of our sleep, we will more easily recognize their symptoms and get them treated earlier, improving our life in the process. There are many detriments to bad sleep; hopefully your student will be able to take what they learn in the Science of Sleep series to improve their sleep, their health, and their life.
