Presented by Dr. Patricia Sulak on Wednesday, May 16, 2018

Too often, we ignore this critical aspect of our health. Sleep disorders not only affect our daytime activities and productivity, but also increase our risk for health disorders including cognitive decline and heart disease. Many are unaware they actually have a sleep disorder. Review the presentation slides here. 
Topics included:

  • Types of sleep disorders and ways to improve the quality of your sleep
  • Work/Life Balance: You CAN have it all!

My Journey to Living WELL Aware

The focus of 2018 is developing a plan for improved health and happiness. Dr. Sulak recently launched My Journey to Living WELL Aware, a comprehensive yearlong wellness health assessment, life strategy, weekly planner and daily journal divided into 4 phases of 13 weeks. Each phase begins with a health assessment, vision, goals, and plans for that quarter followed by a weekly planner and daily journal. Throughout 2018, Dr. Sulak will reinforce the proven strategy of assessing health status, establishing and implementing goals and plans, and continual course correction and monitoring of outcomes.
