The Importance of Sleep for Health and Performance Webinar



Wednesday, 29 May 2024 12:00pm – 1:30pm AEST

The prevalence of inadequate sleep has increased dramatically in recent decades, and this has significant implications for both health and performance. This webinar will discuss the recent research regarding the impact of sleep loss in the development of chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and dementia. In addition, the influence of sleep loss on cognitive and physical performance will be discussed, along with the implications of this for exercise performance and athletes. The intersection between the health benefits of sleep and exercise will also be explored, including how exercise can impact sleep quality. Finally, an overview of practical strategies for improving sleep habits will be reviewed.
