Improving sleep

Poor quality sleep or lack of sleep can create many difficulties in our lives. If you have trouble with any of the following problems, we can help you:

  • Daytime sleepiness
  • Difficulty getting to sleep
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Waking up too early
  • Waking up feeling unrested

The Employee Wellness' Employee Assistance Program (EAP) and Lifestyle Improvement Program offer support for employees and their family members who are having sleep difficulties.

Building resiliency and mindfulness

Resilience can mean the difference between handling pressure and losing your cool. It’s a measurement of your capacity to fully recover in tough situations.

The EAP and Lifestyle Improvement Program teams offer education and training in stress management, mindfulness and resistance. Education and training are organized by request. The Professional Development team, Aging Resource Center, Women’s Health Resource Center, and others also provide training and support in these areas.
