Interactions among sleep, sedentary behaviour, physical activity and overall health: Webinar
Webinar, 1 hour. 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (EDT)
It is well-known that sleeping well, reducing screen time, moving more, and a balanced diet are contributing factors to good health. The interaction of these behaviours is important and suggests that the more “good behaviours” one can include over a period of 24 hours (and sustain over time), the greater the benefits for health and wellness. This session will present the evidence supporting the following key strategies for better overall health: (1) some physical activity is good, more is better, everything counts; (2) sleep is not a waste of time; (3) electronic screen devices should not be used one hour before bedtime; (4) make room for play; and (5) have fun!
