Learn how the new science of sleeping, breathing and walking can help you thrive in day to day life.
We spend 37% of our lives asleep, walk an average of 3,000 – 4,000 steps each day, and take 25,000 breaths.
Yet, despite these activities taking up such a significant chunk of the human experience, our sleeping, breathing and walking habits remain unconscious for most of us.
We learn them at a young age, and then never give them a second thought.
However, new scientific research is beginning to show that these three activities may be ‘the low hanging fruit’ of mental health and wellbeing, and that by making even minor adjustments in these areas, we can dramatically improve our quality of life.
Getting good sleep, for example, has been shown to strengthen the immune system, improve memory, and offer a 3x boost in creativity and problem solving.
Engaging in ‘coherent breathing‘ improves attention and mental clarity, as well as alleviating symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression, isolation and trauma.
And walking regularly throughout the day has been scientifically proven to stimulate the production of molecules promoting brain health, boost mood, reduce rumination over negative experiences, and increase blood flow to the brain.
So, in this online conference, we’ll explore the fascinating science underlying these activities, and how you can optimise them for greater wellbeing in day to day life. This online conference, like many others, can connect you with others simply by using the best laptops for video conferencing. You can find information for the conference down below.
- The Neuroscience of Optimal Sleep; the cutting-edge research underpinning why we sleep, why it is even more important than you think it is, how we mess it up, and how to optimise your sleeping patterns so you can thrive in your daily life – Professor Vincent Walsh (University College London)
- Walking: The Superpower of Wellbeing; the surprising science behind walking and optimal brain health, why it’s so good for us, and the powerful impact it can have on our mental and physical wellbeing – Professor Shane O’Mara (Trinity College, Dublin)
- The Healing Power of the Breath; how evidence-based breathing practices can alleviate symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression and trauma, and how you can use the ‘Breath-Body-Mind’ approach for greater mental clarity, energy and performance – Dr Patricia Gerbarg (New York Medical College) & Dr Richard Brown (Columbia University, NY)
You’ll learn how these unique insights can improve your own quality of life and also how to help others do the same. We are fortunate enough to live in a time where we have access to lots of different ways to help improve our quality of life such as using something like CBD. However, before using something like this you may want to learn more about the CBD tincture vs oil debate that has been rumbling along online.
