Sleep & Sleep Disorders

Sleep Better – Feel Better

Workplace health assessments and employee health assessments often include a question or two about sleep.

However, most organizations focus on exercise, smoking and diet and rarely address employee sleep concerns.

If you would like to help employees sleep better and feel better so that they can be more productive, consider offering one of the following presentations.


Do you have the energy to achieve all that you would like or are you too tired to bother? Rather than feeling like ‘Wahwahwahwah’ you could feel like ‘Zippideedoodah!’

This entertaining and informative presentation makes the case that our success is built on the benefits sleep offers and when we steal from sleep, we steal from our health, our well-being and our success.

Why sleep is so significant for health and well-being;

  • the 5 biggest ’sleep stealers’
  • the ’sleep fixers’ that will help you sleep better and feel better
  • the formula that will take you from ‘Wahwahwahwah’ to ‘Zippideedoodah!’
