    A.W.A.K.E. (Alert, Well and Keeping Energetic) is a mutual help group for people with sleep disordered breathing and their families. The group functions as a forum for exchanging information and increasing awareness of sleep, sleep disorders and related health concerns.

    The monthly meetings are held the first Tuesday of the month and are led by a volunteer coordinator and attended by at least one staff member from the Palo Alto Medical Foundation's Sleep Center.

    Monthly meetings provide education, social interaction and sharing plus an opportunity to learn about current research and developments in sleep disorders, treatment and equipment. The AWAKE group is free and open to the community.

    Tuesday June 7 "Are Your Thoughts Keeping You Up at Night?" by Dr. Julie Forbes.

    As human beings, our cognitive experience can become very dominant. Thoughts are easily triggered by the stimulation we are exposed to throughout our waking life. Moreover, it is not uncommon for these thoughts to interfere with sleep. In this presentation, we will take a look at the tendency for our thoughts to become out of balance in a negative direction, initiating cycles of unnecessary worries, planning and judgments. (This phenomenon is referred to as having distorted thoughts.) We will become more familiar with common distorted thought patterns and explore ways we may balance those thoughts to bring ourselves out of stress reactivity. Learning these skills may assist you in working with your thoughts in a manner that helps you fall asleep when your thoughts are keeping you up at night!.

    A Q&A session will follow the presentation.
