2016/11/29【Workshop for faculty and staff】Make Sweet Slumbers a Reality— A Workshop for Increasing Sleep Quality

Feeling lethargic in the morning and unable to stop yawning at work? Already going to bed early but unable to fall asleep ‘til morning? Do you wonder if you’re simply not tired enough, have too much on your mind, or not taking enough sleeping pills? Do you wonder how you can sleep well?


In fact, sleep quality is highly related to stress, which means you’re less likely to fall sleep, the more you try to. Make sweet slumbers a reality, starting with relaxing your body!

The present workshop invites counselor Shu-Ling Chou, who will help you:

  1. Understand sleep mechanisms and examine your sleep habits
  2. Find a relaxation technique the most helpful to you, helping you to fall asleep
  3. Learn relaxation skills that will help you sleep through the night
  4. Disabuse any myths you have regarding sleep through group discussion


Leave behind your old sleep habits and let us embark on a journey of sleep!
