Sleep and Well-Being
Vancouver Campus | 12:30pm–2:00pm
Are you interested in learning about the role of sleep on emotional well-being? For this event, two health psychologists -- Nancy Sin, PhD, and Jin Wen, MA -- will present the latest research evidence demonstrating the importance of sleep for multiple aspects of psychological and physical health.
First, they 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, they will share findings from their own research about how sleep might influence responses to stressful events, including recent evidence about daily life stress during COVID-19. The latter part of this session will be devoted to Q&A to discuss tips for maintaining sleep health amid stress.
This workshop is open to students on both the Vancouver and Okanagan campuses.
