A to Zzzz: The Basics of Better Sleep

For those in our community - our clients and caregivers to our donors
and volunteers - sleep is an important component of our overall
health and ability to manage stress. For all of us, the past 18+
months have included many challenges and it is our hope
that we can all benefit from this talk.

This event is open to the entire SOUL RYEDERS community. Dr. Harris will discuss sleep basics, with a focus on holistic, non-medicated practices. She will discuss sleep loss as a natural response to stress, when you should consider making habit changes, and introduce some evidence-backed options to help you sleep better.

There will be an opportunity for questions and we will collect them in advance of the event, as well as during the event.

All guests who attend this event will receive a "sleep package" to support your efforts to have a good night's sleep, including tips and a special gift.
