Sleep Workshop - CSIRO

Recently I was asked to facilitate a Sleep Workshop for 45 CSIRO personnel, as part of their Workplace Health and Well-being day.

Sleep is so much a part of good health, sometimes it can get over-looked in the busy-ness of work and to-and-from home, especially when asked to work longer hours than usual, in different seasons. Sleep is also important to not only our physical well-being, but also to our emotional well-being.

If we get adequate, good quality sleep , we tend to function better at work, make better decisions, better life-style choices (eg, less junk food, less alcohol etc). We are also more alert and less grumpy!

Most of us know this already, but are we all doing anything about lack of sleep when it occurs?

This sleep workshop gave plenty of tips of what to do and what not to do, in order to get a good sleep.

It also gave out some easy ‘body-hacks’ that people could implement straight away.

Some of the comments from participants were: “I’ll try the self-fulfilling prophecy tip – telling myself something positive rather than going over all the negative things”.

“The progressive muscle relaxation method seemed to work for me, even in a crowded room!”

“I’m going to make a concerted effort to get to bed before midnight each night! (especially knowing that I have to get up at 6.00)”

“Having no alcohol after 9.00 pm might be a good habit to get into, and it may mean that I don’t have to get up and go to the toilet, or I won’t have a headache”.

One of the supervisors said that they will keep the tips learnt in the workshop, in mind, when they next have to ask staff to work longer hours.

Feel free to contact me if you think that staff at your workplace would benefit from learning some useful tips and information in how to look after their health, by getting better sleep.

Or ask me when the next sleep workshop is running. Workshops can be run over zoom, or in person.

I look forward to hearing from you, and being able to share my knowledge!
