Topic:  Understanding Sleep & Anxiety for Quality Performance in the Workplace  

This past year has highlighted the importance of workplace wellbeing and the impact that the pandemic and societal stresses have had on employee mental and behavioral health. Stress and Sleep significantly impact an employee's memory, focus, attention and concentration. Additionally, they reduce effectiveness and increase the risk for accidents on the job. In this session, Dr. Milanak will highlight three key areas important for quality performance in the workplace:
  • Stress, worry and anxiety can motivate or impair efficiency and effectiveness. Understand and shift the way you react to life stressors to enhance focus and emotional well-being. 
  • Tips and tricks to combat stress, reduce burnout, navigate technology/zoom fatigue, shut off your worried mind, and truly experience a few minutes of rest and relaxation. Learn practical healthy coping techniques.  
  • Disrupted schedules, increased stress, and pressures at work and home can interfere with sleep in many ways. Learn practical tips and strategies to start getting sweet dreams during times of highest unrest.
