Reduce stress, improve sleep

Nationally, one-third of the population experiences occasional sleep problems, yet only 10 percent of sleep problems are caused from medical conditions. The remainders of sleep problems are caused by things we can control. Come to the sleep enhancement class to find out how. Next class is noon Aug. 15, in the Chapel Resource Room, Building 300. Bring your lunch. No registration necessary.
