For something that we do for a third of our life, it's amazing how little we know about sleep, and how much we abuse it. To operate at our full potential in life, it is important to understand what happens when we do and don't sleep.
By looking at the neuroscience, we can learn to manage problems such as sleep deprivation, difficulties getting off to sleep and unnecessary waking from sleep. Strategies are taught in simple 'how to' language. We also look at using naps, dreams and body clock cycles effectively. The benefits of good quality sleep to emotional and physical well-being, time management and resilience are strongly emphasised.

Real Life Time Management
"Too much to do and not enough time"-it's what many say and maybe it is true. There is a point where a person cannot fit anything more into a schedule-time is, as we know, a limited resource. But what if there were some simple tricks to make the most of the time a person has available and they are not using them because they are not aware of what can be done.
Most time management books don't effectively teach how to maximise self as a resource in such a way that works in the context of 'real life' demands. This module takes into account that 'real-life' happens and we all get snowed under at times. It looks at strategies that actually work for people who have a lot to do and who struggle to fit it all in.
