“Energy, not time, is the fundamental currency of high performance.” - Jim Loehr, psychologist and productivity expert
This seminar combines three important but often overlooked aspects of your students’ lives that can have a real impact on their education: sleep, exercise and nutrition. The most vital of the three for your students is sleep. Lack of sleep in children and adolescents has been declared a 'public health crisis’ on the scale of the obesity epidemic the UK is currently facing.1 It comes as no surprise, then, that two thirds of adolescents regularly drink energy drinks.2
A lack of sleep can have profound consequences for your students, including:
● Impaired short term and long term memory.
● Impaired concentration and lethargy.
● Reduced creativity.
● Reduced problem-solving ability.
● Irritability and emotional instability.
● Reduced willpower.
● Depression and anxiety.
● A weakened immune system leading to a susceptibility to infections and more sick days off.
This seminar will help your students take back control of their sleep. In the seminar we’ll also teach your students about the role of diet and exercise in managing mood and energy levels.
