Happy World Sleep Day -17th March 2023

March 17, 2023

As conference organisers, we understand the critical role of sleep, and it ensures we are in top form every day so that everything runs seamlessly at our conference centres.

World Sleep Day is not a day about taking time off to sleep!  Instead, it aims to create an awareness of how crucial sleep is for our health and well-being.  The World Sleep Society is arranging sleep health awareness activities, and members in over 70 countries will be participating in various activities to promote sleep health.

This year’s World Sleep Day theme is “Sleep is Essential for Health”. Just like eating well and exercising, sleep is crucial to one’s physical, mental, and social well-being.

Who created World Sleep Day?

This annual event was started by a group of committed healthcare providers and members of the medical community, working and studying in the field of sleep medicine and research. The aim of the first World Sleep Day was to unite sleep healthcare providers to educate and circulate information around the world.

Key messages for World Sleep Day 2023

1st Key Message:  Healthy sleep is more than the simple duration

Three aspects of good quality sleep are:

Duration: the length of sleep should be enough for the sleeper to be rested and attentive for the following day.

Continuity: Sleep periods should be smooth without any interruptions.

Depth: Sleep should be deep enough to be invigorating.

2nd Key Message: Sleep is a pillar of human health

The World Health Organization explains health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” Many years of research have shown the importance of sleep for physical, mental, and social well-being.

The reasons why sleep is essential to health:

  • Boosts memory and learning.
  • Helps immune health, and immune health supports sleep.
  • Assists the immune system to clear bacteria and viruses.
