Sleep

Sleep is something we all need, but sometimes it gets neglected. Help your residents feel well rested with this workshop!

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand a few of the basic ways that sleep affects our minds and bodies
  2. Understand how some behaviors affect sleep and vice versa

Materials:

Laptop/projector, chosen activity materials

Preparation:

Gather relevant activity materials.

Workshop:

This workshop is designed to last about 30 - 45 minutes. There is a short (approximately 10 minute) PowerPoint available that explains why sleep is important for college students and how some of our daily habits affect our ability to sleep. The Sleep Quiz and/or the Sleep Preferences Game would be useful tools prior to the presentation (or discussion, if just using the PowerPoint as a reference) as they help participants reflect on their personal behaviors. The bulk of the workshop is intended to be more experiential.

Though it is not a posted activity, one fun suggestion is to review some of the basic sleep information from the PowerPoint before heading over as a group to one of the yoga classes offered for free to students through Campus Rec. Just be sure you get there early if you have a big group.

For more information, see the Sleep Health Topic or Sleep Resources.
