Activity: Sleep week at the Estonian universities – a collaborative initiative by the psychologists working at the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre, Tartu University, TTK University of Applied Sciences and from the mental health website Peaasi.ee (Head Matters). Estonian Business School and Estonian University of Life Sciences have also joined the sleep week activities. The main objective of the week is to promote sleep hygiene tips among the students and staff. Concrete tips for keeping regular sleep and good sleep hygiene will be shared via web-site, Instagram and Facebook. Several articles will be published and online-seminars will be held by the psychologists.
What is special about the sleep week in Estonia? Campaign has been launched to find new sleep songs. 23 songs have arrived, which will be played in the evenings via Instagram Live (look for peaasi.ee). As a follow-up, sleep songs will be broadcast via public broadcasting’s radio show “Fantaasia” on March 31, 2023. Listen to the radio show last year https://klassikaraadio.err.ee/1608585769/fantaasia-elina-kivinukk
