Solent small business owners invited to improve their sleep and wellbeing at free webinar

04 November 2021

The LEP is running a free webinar on Improving Your Sleep and Wellbeing to support the mental and physical health of those running small and medium sized enterprises in the Solent area.

As part of the Solent Local Enterprise Partnership's commitment to put health and wellbeing at the heart of the region's economic success, the LEP is running a free webinar on Improving Your Sleep and Wellbeing from 09:30 - 10:30 on Tuesday 23 November to support the mental and physical health of those running small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in the Solent area.

SJ Hunt, Deputy Chair of the Solent Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and Chair of the Solent LEP's Business Task Force, said: "For small business owners, it can sometimes be difficult to switch off from the responsibility of running a business and relax. This can impact on sleep and general wellbeing, and eventually on business performance, starting a cycle of worry. Helping people understand how to improve their own wellbeing, and that of their teams, both in the immediate future and through longer term solutions, can create a positive and lasting impact for future success."

The Solent LEP has partnered with the Federation for Small Businesses (FSB) to provide a package of support for small business owners to help their mental health and wellbeing.

This webinar on Improving Sleep and Wellbeing will be run by Sleep Expert and former NHS Biomedical scientist Marian Timms and will combine her scientific knowledge and passion to help people sleep, understand why sleep is important, what goes wrong when we don't sleep long enough or well enough, and five top tips to kick start a journey to better sleep.

Christine Husbands from FSB Care, provider of Solent Business Wellbeing Support, will also be on hand to explain how FSB Care’s team of nurses can help business owners with both their mental and physical wellbeing through one-to-one support, resources and even face-to-face therapies funded by the Solent LEP.

This webinar is part of the Solent Local Enterprise Partnership’s Solent business wellbeing support. Registration is free  - click here for more details and to register.
