Read a short note from Dr. David Wang on World Sleep Day: 

world-sleep-day“World Sleep Day 2021 is around ‘Regular Sleep, Healthy Future’ and is a call to everyone around the world to get enough sleep to achieve an optimal quality of life. We spend on average a third of our lives asleep1 and it is just as important to our bodies as eating, drinking and breathing - it is vital for maintaining good mental and physical health.”

“Ultimately, sleep and health are directly connected – poor sleep can increase the risk of having poor health, and poor health can make it difficult to sleep. We can all benefit from improving the quality of sleep. Whether it’s a case of making a small lifestyle change, such as the hour we choose to go to sleep or an attitude adjustment around the value of sleep, it’s important we’re getting enough sleep to fuel us for the day ahead. Often basic techniques like concentrating on your breathing can improve your sleep and some wellbeing apps can help you keep track of your sleep patterns to understand this better but if you’re struggling, speak to your doctor about other potential treatments, especially as sleep problems sometimes indicate other health issues.” - Dr. David Wang, Associate Medical Director APAC, Global Solutions
