The World Sleep Society's annual World Sleep Day is being held on Friday 17 March. This year's theme is Sleep is Essential for Health.
Sleep is an essential, core pillar of health and is often under-valued and poorly understood. It's as important as diet and exercise. The Sleep Health Foundation aims to raise the awareness of the importance of sleep and The World Sleep Society's annual World Sleep Day is a great opportunity to do this. We want to empower and educate workplaces and the broader community about sleep health and its impact on physical and mental health, workplace productivity and safety. If you're interested in hosting an educational presentation, please consider booking a Sleep Health Foundation speaker to attend your workplace, school, or community group.
