Session 1 – 11:00 -12:15 Session 2 – 12:30 – 1:45 Sessions: “What You Need to Know About Sleep” – By Mary O’Sullivan Sleep is as important as good nutrition and regular exercise in maintaining our overall health. It allows us to relax, restore, and revitalize our body, mind, and emotions every twenty-four hours, and it helps repair our physical bodies to improve and maintain our health. Three major areas will be addressed in this workshop: the importance of
sleep, what happens during sleep, and the major sleep disorders, insomnia and sleep apnea. Teambuilding through Fun Books – By JD Moore Fabulous books can teach business principles and morals through humor and analogy and are surprisingly effective ways for adults to open up, to generate discussions and dialogue, and to get them involved in teambuilding. Using non-threatening books by Dr. Seuss, such as “Oh the Thinks You Can Think,” or “Oh the Places You Can Go,” or the Piper story of “The Little Engine That Could,” or any of the original Thomas the Tank Engine stories, make it easy to get conversation going and involvement from everyone. 900 Wilkinson Blvd, 502-319-0260, jd_001@msn.com, http://www.hassansconsult.com
