Dreaming of a Better Sleep?

Do you find it difficult to get to sleep?

Do you often wake feeling unrefreshed?

You’re not alone: more than a quarter of people in the UK report that they struggle to get to sleep at least once a week, and for some, experiencing poor sleep once a week would count as a success.

In this course, we will look at what can help improve our chances of getting a good night's sleep, including the benefits of sleep hygiene and why sleep is essential to our health.

Food 'n' Mood

Are you feeling confused with all the different nutritional advice and messages coming through the media? 

Would you like to explore the relationship between what we eat and how we feel? If so, this course might be just for you!

Food is a vital part of our lives - it is not only a source of energy, but also a source of enjoyment, a way to be creative and an opportunity to connect, share and bring people together.

In this two-session course we will be exploring what healthy eating means to us personally, how our food choices can affect our mood and vice versa and try to ‘myth-bust’ some common nutritional myths to allow us to make informed and helpful food choices.

We will be discussing and growing our awareness around how our thoughts and feelings can influence our food choices. By the end of the session, we hope to have explored a variety of topics which will enable you to create a better relationship with food linking its impact on our wellbeing.
