Topic: Upgraded Sleep For A Better Well-being
Webinar Time: 9.30am to 10.45am
Ms Zoe Chu
Founder of SG Supernanny
Zoe is the founder of SG Supernanny, a baby and adult sleep expert, author and speaker who has a mission to empower tired and sleep deprived families and also stressed out adults to get back their precious quality sleep. She has helped transformed the lives of thousands of families all around the world through her sleep programme.
Sleep is an everyday thing, and we often hear of the importance of having an ample amount of sleep because of the consequential effects on our well-being. Having a good rest allows both our body and mind to repair themselves. However, family caregivers often find themselves in a position where they have insufficient sleep or do not feel well-rested because of the various stressors that arise from their caregiving. A poor quality of sleep will not only affect one’s mental well-being, but also one’s physical health which will impact on the quality of care provided for your loved ones.
Through this talk, family caregivers can be equipped with useful knowledge and tips on how to sleep better which is fundamental to one’s well-being.

“Music does a lot of things for a lot of people… It can take you right back, years back, to the very moment certain things happened in your life. It’s uplifting, it’s encouraging, it’s strengthening.”
- Aretha Franklin, American singer
Since ancient times, music has been recognized for its therapeutic value. Aristotle, a Greek philosopher, wrote that “flute music could arouse strong emotions and purify the soul.” Music is a powerful tool that can be harnessed to reconnect with loved ones who are stricken with disease and to revitalize oneself from the struggles and stresses of everyday life. Through live demonstrations and experiences, this session will explore the power of music and introduce several music-based strategies that one can use to reconnect with loved ones and for one’s own self-care.
Participants to note:
When attending this presentation, participants are strongly encouraged to use headphones or proper speakers so that you can have the best sound quality.
In this session, participants will learn about the therapeutic value and benefits of music. In addition, participants will also be introduced to several music-based strategies that you can use to reconnect with your loved ones, or for your own self-care.
