Free Sleep Well, Feel Well Workshop
It refreshes us like nothing else. It can occasionally be elusive, almost always comforting, and is definitely essential to our survival. And although we spend one third of our lives asleep, we barely give it a moment’s notice…until we can’t sleep.
Having a poor night’s sleep can really affect your ability to concentrate and make decisions. For millions of people, the consequences of a poor night’s sleep—higher stress, increased mistakes, difficulty concentrating – are every day occurrences. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
This one hour workshop will introduce ways to support restful sleep. Topics covered include understanding the adult sleep cycle, what may prevent a good night’s sleep and tips for sleeping well.
Free Managing Stress Workshop
Stress is the feeling of being under too much emotional or physical pressure. It can be a useful part of everyday life but sometimes it can lead to a feeling of being overwhelmed and exhausted, causing difficulties at work or at home. Stress can affect how you think, make decisions, and prioritise daily activities. You may recognise some physical symptoms such as sleeplessness, loss of appetite, sweating, poor concentration, losing your temper and drinking more alcohol.
This one hour workshop introduces the symptoms of stress and how the body responds, and provides simple strategies to manage this.
Free Managing the Menopause Workshop
The menopause is a natural part of ageing that usually occurs between 45 and 55 years of age, as a woman’s oestrogen levels decline and often marks a major transition in a woman’s life.
It is important not to stereotype women’s experiences as experiences differ vastly and are often affected by the cultural and social context of women’s lives. However, the changes that come with menopause can often affect a woman’s life physically and emotionally often leading to depression and anxiety.
We will look at understanding the menopause in relation to the effect on our psychological and physical health. The techniques offered will look at ways to manage the physical symptoms and emotional effects of the menopause, how to notice and challenge ‘unhelpful’ thoughts and make small changes in lifestyle which can help us feel more in control.
