While women are known for their multi-tasking abilities, trying to juggle too much at once can be a dangerous game to play. We all want to find that perfect balance between work and home life but getting the balance right isn’t always easy. Luckily there’s no need to go it alone as Cape Town-based ladies will get the chance to learn all about finding balance at this week’s SSISA Women’s Wellness workshop – “Calling all multi-tasking women – getting the balance right”.

This super interesting workshop, hosted in conjunction with Futurelife and Granny Goose, forms part of the ever-popular Women’s Wellness Workshop series offered by the Sports Science Institute of South Africa (SSISA) and is a three-part series. The series covers a broad range of issues, challenges and opportunities faced by the modern woman.

The first Women’s Wellness Workshop of 2018, “Calling all multi-tasking women – getting the balance right” – kicks off on Wednesday 18 April at 18:00, and features talks from renowned wellness experts such as Clinton Gahwiler (SSISA-based psychologist, with decades of experience including that attained internationally), and Dr Dale Rae (Manager of the Sleep Science programme at SSISA & a Senior Researcher in Chronobiology and Sleep Health at UCT).

“The key to keeping the balance and being our personal best, is optimising sleep”, says Dr Dale Rae, who heads SSISA’s Sleep Science unit: “In trying to be ‘superwoman’, we are always looking for more hours in our day. In so doing, sleep is often the first thing to be sacrificed to make more time. But what if prioritising sleep helped you find the balance you need?”

There’s still time to register for the interactive workshop which offers a personalised look at the attendees’ sleep habits. Once you’ve registered for the event, you’ll receive a link to three short scientific online questionnaires which help the experts give you some practical advice on improving your sleep quality.

The event is R100 per person and tickets can be booked via Webtickets. Light snacks and beverages will be served. There will also be prizes worth over R10 000 up for grabs on the night!
