Description

Numerous research has shown shift workers are prone to various chronic health complaints including gastrointestinal complaints, obesity, insulin resistance, cardiovascular disease, mental health disorders, depleted immune systems – to name a few.This stems largely from ongoing sleep deprivation and disruption to the sleep/wake cycle, along with subsequent misalignment of biological circadian rhythms which often induces fatigue, leading to poor dietary and lifestyle habits.

In this webinar, Audra Starkey will explore:

  • Why sleep prioritization is critical for anyone working 24/7
  • Strategies to support the parasympathetic nervous system to encourage better sleep
  • The influence of chrononutrition in the management of shift work wellness
  • Shift work nutrition – eating to support more energy, better digestive health and weight regulation
