Good Night Insomnia

Sleep is essential to living a happy and healthy life. In fact, the human body can function far better without food for a few days than it can without sleep. Insomnia or sleep deprivation is a serious issue and can lead to physical and emotional problems such as high blood pressure, weight gain, diabetes, depression, anxiety, and impaired immune functioning. If you have been experiencing sleep difficulties, you already know how persistent and frustrating it can be. What can you do? Many turn to prescription medicines or other substances to sleep better. However, these medications are not without side-effects. Some can be addictive, lose effectiveness over time, or interact badly with other medications. There’s a better way. Medical studies have shown that mindfulness can be an effective tool in fostering in a more natural, restorative sleep over time.

In this workshop, we will explore:

  • Tips for avoiding some of the most common issues that interfere with sleep

  • Best practices for coping with wakefulness

  • Mindfulness practices to set yourself up for a good night’s sleep

  • Breathing techniques to induce calm and sleepiness

  • Tips for working with looping thoughts/rumination

Saturday 11/17 • 12:00pm-5:00pm

Sunday 11/18 • 9:00am-12:00pm

Mary Linda will be teaching this workshop with Barbara Burggraaff, MD. Dr. Burggraaff is a physician, board certified both in Otolaryngology (Ear, Nose and Throat) and in the subspecialty of Sleep Medicine. She is also a certified mindfulness teacher. Dr. Burggraaff has combined her careers in medicine and mindfulness to create a new approach to treating sleep problems, insomnia and anxiety.

Registration is through our host, Innergy Miami Beach.
