Wednesday, December 14, 2016

This week, a number of Queen's University experts are available to comment on topics relating to the holiday season. Topics will cover a wide range of topics, including resolutions, gift giving, and maintaining emotional and physical health during the holidays.

Queen’s University sleep expert Judith Davidson is available to comment on getting the proper amount of sleep during the holiday season and insomnia in adults.

“Many factors can contribute to poor sleep at this time of year, including excitement, stress, hectic schedules, social obligations, family get-togethers, loneliness, awareness of losses, pressure to be happy, alcohol, big meals, late nights, dark days and changes in routine,” says Dr. Davidson.

In part one of our holiday expert pitch, Tandy Thomas commented on holiday marketing.
