Build your best day

As we power through our 24-hour days, fueled by technology, coffee, and our Fear of Missing Out (FOMO), it’s easy to forget that our bodies are connected to nature. In particular, our bodies have an intrinsic circadian rhythm, and learning to eat, sleep, exercise, and schedule work according to that rhythm can actually boost your health, increase your productivity, and reduce your risk of chronic illness.

Did you know that the World Health Organization has declared night shift work a probable carcinogen? And that long-term sleep disruption can increase your risk of minor illnesses, like cold and flu, and major conditions, such as cancer and Alzheimer’s?

This course will teach you how to stop fighting your body and learn how to make wise, empirically supported choices about sleep, diet, exercise, and work so you can plan your daily schedule in a way that builds your best day and your best life.
