The Fatigue Prevention Program
Introduction to the Seminar:
What causes daytime or wake time fatigue? Is it poor sleep? Perhaps it is, but how does one explain incessant yawning, drowsiness and lethargy during a day following an 8 or 9 hour sleep?
Fatigue is a multi-faceted challenge and requires understanding and knowledge to ensure that it can be kept at bay, or even eliminated.
Energy drinks and stimulants are not a good answer. Over time, these may well have a negative impact on the health of the body, leading to additional problems, and possibly more fatigue. Energy drinks and other stimulants, in a hot climate can increase the risks of heatstroke, workplace accidents and death.
The Aim of the Seminar:
To educate, inspire and empower your people to gain mastery over fatigue to reduce risk, workplace presenteeism and absenteeism, and to improve productivity, enthusiasm, culture and enjoyment of life. I want your employees go home at the end of the day, and when they do go home, have energy to engage their families and play with their kids.
The Seminar starts out with a look at human physiology and the importance of fully oxygenated blood flowing to the brain at optimum rate and volume. When oxygen delivery to the brain is compromised, fatigue quickly sets in. The program then addresses a variety of factors that compromise oxygen saturation in the blood, and blood volume, two factors that commonly cause fatigue.
There are many common factors that can compromise oxygen delivery to the brain. Most people battle through their effects daily, then blame workload, not enough sleep or stress for their fatigue. The seminar also addresses mental fatigue, a common problem that is not well understood, yet easily overcome.
Sleep is also addressed. Some people need 4 hours per night. Some need 9 hours.And some spend 9 hours in bed and sleep for less than 4. Many things can compromise sleep quality. Did you know that Snoring and Sleep Apnoea can both be rectified within 2 to 3 weeks?
This is a powerful and life changing seminar providing strategies that can be used daily to improve life.
