From 9-13 October 2021 Brisbane will become a hub for sleep medicine, science, and education with the first ever FREE Sleep Health & Wellbeing Expo on Saturday 9th October followed by the Idiopathic Hypersomnia and Narcolepsy Education Day on Sunday 10th October, running alongside the Australasian Sleep Association’s conference (10-13th October), all under the one roof at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.

In order to maintain a well-balanced, healthy lifestyle it’s important to give the same level of care and attention to 4 elements, known as “Pillars of Health”;


• Sleep

• Mindset

• Exercise

• Nutrition



 

These four pillars are our foundation for good health. If one or more of these pillars are not in place it will have a negative impact on the others. Having a good night’s sleep is important for brain function, muscle repair, and metabolism. So, even if you exercise daily and maintain a balanced diet, if your sleep is poor you may struggle to achieve your desired results. Likewise, if your mindset and exercise is comprised this can have a negative impact on the quality of your sleep. This can set off a vicious cycle that can be hard to get out of.
 

The Sleep Health & Wellbeing Expo is a FREE industry-leading event providing an unparalleled opportunity for people to discover and connect with community services, businesses, and organisations within the sleep, and allied health care industries. Our event is not just an expo, it will also feature a diverse and comprehensive speaker program developed by qualified sleep and allied health care professionals.
 

Sleep is often overlooked as being important to our health. However, research shows that without adequate sleep our health, resilience and performance is greatly impacted. Our goal is to shine a light on the importance of good sleep health and to show how a holistic approach, incorporating all 4 pillars of health is essential to overall wellbeing.
