SLEEP HEALTH & WELLBEING EXPO Saturday 9th April 2022


As mentioned above there will be a FREE Sleep Health & Wellbeing Expo on Saturday 9th April (the day before the IH & Narcolepsy Education Day) that we are working on with Sleep Disorders Australia. The goal of the Expo is to spread the message of the importance of having all 4 pillars of health in balance.


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. People with Idiopathic Hypersomnia get more than enough good quality sleep so they don't have a problem with the first pillar however because they need to sleep so much and the sleep is so deep it is easy for the other 3 pillars to suffer. While a good diet and exercise will not improve Idiopathic Hypersomnia, a poor diet and lack of exercise can definitely make Idiopathic Hypersomnia symptoms more difficult to manage. Another problem that many people with Idiopathic Hypersomnia have is managing the depression and anxiety that are common when trying to cope with a chronic illness. So, even if you get enough good quality sleep if you are not getting enough exercise and you are not maintaining a balanced diet, and if your mindset is compromised it can set off a vicious cycle that can be hard to get out of and it can have a negative impact on your overall health and wellbeing. Come along for a whole weekend of information and education aimed to help you live your best life! The Sleep Health & Wellbeing Expo is not only FREE you will be provided with morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea AND there will be free espresso coffee! While the Expo is FREE, you will need to register. Registrations are now open. Click here to register. Click here for more information about the Sleep Health & Wellbeing Expo.
