Lunch & Lift – October 19

Lunch & Lift is a series of free 2-in-1 interactive wellbeing workshops consisting of a 30-minute movement class, followed by a 30-minute interactive wellbeing session facilitated by a UBC wellbeing professional.

This session will provide an overview of the basics of sleep, including how much sleep is recommended and the biobehavioural mechanisms that link sleep to future health outcomes. Next, I will share findings from my own research about how sleep might influence responses to stressful events, including recent evidence how poor sleep affects our expectations of stressful events the next day. The latter part of this session will be devoted to Q&A to discuss tips for maintaining sleep health amid stress.
