Assess your values

It doesn’t take long to do.  I’ve taken this  … http://www.lifevaluesinventory.org … Step 1 – 5 myself (to clarify/prioritize values) and found it quite useful.  The Life Values Inventory is free and it’s part of a research study. Your ‘data’ is kept private for you online for you to return to. The only way your data is used is without your name attached to it.

This process can help you to crystalize your values … so that you can better prioritize your goals!

Insomnia HubInsomnia Hub

Educators, clinicians, researchers, & students join in a Community of Practice to LEAD – to fight the hype and interprofessionally speak up for ‘what’s proven to work’ for Insomnia.

Summary

Educators, clinicians, researchers, & students join in a Community of Practice to LEAD – to fight the hype and interprofessionally speak up for ‘what’s proven to work’ for Insomnia.

We LEAD

The Insomnia Hub is an open access, crowdsourced, and curated knowledge-sharing Hub, within the Neuroscience Network, in the non-profit Open Network (ON). We share science-based knowledge about Insomnia and related news, events, resources, people, and organizations.

Together, we hope to spread ‘what works & where to find it’ … We LEAD

Leverage the Insomnia Hub & other social media to
Effectively promote ‘what works’ to
Accelerate consumer demand for best practices &
Disseminate the best science about Insomnia.

The Issue

Americans spend up to $107 billion a year on sleep, including 60 million scripts. Did you know  that sleeping pills often don’t work or can be dangerous?  Most of the 1 in 3 with insomnia don’t know that Doctors’ Guidelines say to first try the non-drug therapy (CBT-I).  It seems like only the hype is heard – like ‘Ask your Doctor’ ads.

All in healthcare professions are urged to promote best practices using social media.  Imagine if the entire community spoke up together in one place – over the hype … for what’s proven to work and where to find it.
