About this event

*** Wellbeing Day Out – Workshop 01.00pm – Held in Lounge ***

Sleep is important for brain functioning, emotional and physical wellbeing, and performance. Learn how to get quality sleep from Fiona Johnston, occupational therapist, author, blogger and speaker about evidence based strategies to increase the quality and quantity of your sleep without using medication.

Fiona Johnston has 20+ years of experience helping people manage sleep, fatigue, shiftwork and work-life balance in many industry sectors including aviation, transport, mining, health and manufacturing.

Fiona's primary background is in occupational therapy where she has helped people with mental health problems, trauma and concussion, manage sleep and fatigue.

In 1995 Fiona founded Shiftwork Services in order to combine scientific thinking about sleep and fatigue with practical know how to create safer workplaces. Achieving fast and inspiring results, Fiona has successfully worked with many companies including MPI, Spark, NZ Blood, Port of Tauranga, Office Max, Fonterra, New Zealand Defence Force and many others, teaching their staff the formula for a relaxing sleep. Her work with Fonterra won the overall prize for wellbeing at the 2018 Safeguard awards.

Fiona is a member of the Australian Sleep Association and the New Zealand Occupational Therapy Association. Her book, Getting a Good Night’s Sleep, has sold over 10,000 copies and is available as a paperback, ebook and audiobook.

*****

This is a Free Workshop. However capacity is limited, and hence we do require people to reserve their place with a free ticket from eventbrite. We will also use eventbrite to send you workshop reminders and advise you of any changing circumstances or changing requirements due to COVID-19 etc (including cancellation). If you find that you are unable to attend, please cancel your ticket so that someone else on the waitlist won't miss out. Thank you!

*****

Wellbeing Day Out is organised by Mt Eden Rotary and sponsored by the Albert-Eden Local Board (and Albert-Eden Neighbourhood Arts).

*****

Wellbeing Day Out Will Only Proceed At Venue Under ALERT LEVEL 1. For Mt Eden Rotary, the Event Organiser, the health, safety, and wellbeing of our community is our number one priority. We recognise that Events could be a transmission risk if COVID-19 community transmission re-emerges. We also recognise that alert level changes can occur with very short notice. Therefore, for your planning purposes, please note that we will ONLY proceed with the WELLBEING DAY OUT event on a physical face-to-face basis at the Mt Eden Village Centre under ALERT LEVEL 1.

*****

Alert Level 1 Best Practice Risk Management for the Health of Attendees. At Alert Level 1, we need to be ready in case COVID-19 reappears in our community. We will clean frequently touched surfaces with an appropriate cleaning solution to reduce transmission of germs in general. For your part, please:

1. Stay home if you are sick.

2. Register on entry via the NZ COVID Tracer App or via our manual registers.

3. Follow basic hygiene measures, ie, good hand hygiene (wash your hands with soap for 20 seconds and then dry thoroughly OR use the hand sanitiser which we will provide), good cough and sneeze etiquette (cough or sneeze into the crook of your elbow OR into a tissue which you dispose of in a bin and then clean your hands), avoid touching your face (clean your hands before touching your face) AND practice physical distancing (when physical distancing isn’t a requirement, you can still play it safe by continuing to keep a distance from people you do not know - use your judgement).

Thank you.
