Don't Lean In, Lay Down: Why Naps Save Lives

With much of the world sleep-deprived, unhappy at work, and with 86% of diseases being both chronic and lifestyle-driven, a radical shift in our approaches to work, life and self-care is of critical importance. In this content-rich, engaging talk on the restorative value of rest (both personally and financially) Michelle Courtney Berry, a former Type A workaholic, turned Reiki Master Teacher, wellness coach, meditation teacher, reluctant CrossFitter and former SXSW encore presenter blends data with humor to help today's overworked visionaries understand how the brain requires sleep and good eats not endless cycles of work and competition. You'll leave refreshed and empowered to resist all b.s. while up-leveling your superpowers in the radical art of self-care.
