When we think about our health, the things that come to mind tend to be eating well and exercising. Prioritising sleep is one of the best things we can do for our health, but it’s often an afterthought. Join our World Sleep Day event to learn about sleep health: what it is, why it’s important and how you can improve yours.
Why is sleep important?
Most people will spend around 25 years of their lives asleep. Clearly evolution rates it. And we should too.
Good sleep boosts immunity, lowers our risk of health problems and generally makes us better versions of ourselves. Bad sleep tanks our memory, makes us injury prone and opens us up to all manner of illnesses.
Yet sleep isn’t really the first thing we think of when we think about our health. And lots of us struggle with it — one in three people live with insomnia.
To help you fix your relationship with sleep, we’re running a Community Space for World Sleep Day. It’s a virtual event and it’s open to all. Read on for all the info you need.
What you’ll learn
- A background to sleep: Why do we need it? How much do we need? Why might we struggle to sleep?
- The benefits of sleep: Why is it key to wellbeing?
- Practical, tangible strategies to tackle insomnia and improve sleep.
