Third Pillar of Health

Sleep, together with cardio-vascular fitness and nutrition, form the three pillars of good health.There is no part of our physical or mental health that can’t be linked back to sleep. When we are sleep deprived, we suffer more frequently from short term ill health.

Over time sleep deprivation has been linked to an increased risk of chronic health conditions including obesity, diabetes, heart disease and certain types of cancer. We are also much more likely to suffer from poor mental health including anxiety and depression.

Sleep is crucial to how we function during the day. This includes our performance at work. Our cognition, executive functioning and creativity are affected. Our vocabulary also becomes impaired. Our domestic, family and social lives can also be affected. Sleep deprivation affects our personal and professional relationships.

In the US studies have shown that roughly one third of the population are regularly failing to obtain sufficient good quality sleep. Tiredness and fatigue are unproductive, costly, unhealthy and unsafe. This presentation will help you understand how to tackle fatigue in your organisation.
