Bedroom specialist Beter Bed has announced that neuroscientist and sleep expert Matthew Walker will be speaking on its event to raise awareness of the importance of good and sufficient sleep.
Along with healthy eating and sufficient exercise, a good night’s sleep is one of the most important conditions for staying healthy as you get older.
Research by Beter Bed shows that although a large part of Dutch people recognise the importance of a good night’s sleep, they hardly ever act on this.
As part of its mission ‘Sleep better, live better’, Beter Bed has been focusing on improving people’s sleep for years now.
The bedroom specialist teams up with various experts to provide in-depth information on sleep related topics.
At the invitation of Beter Bed in cooperation with box spring brand Velda, Matthew Walker is coming to the Netherlands to share his knowledge and inspiration with interested Dutch and Belgian parties.
At a major event organised by Beter Bed in September this year, Walker will answer questions such as: why is sleep so important? How does sleep impact your brain health and risk of Alzheimer’s disease? How does a lack of sleep impact your heart health, and also your immune health, including risk of cancer?
Walker will give practical tips to help you put better sleep into practice right away. In addition to Walker’s presentation, during which he will share his inspiring insights, attendees will be able to follow sessions offering tips on how to improve their sleep, including breathing techniques or a mindful walk.
Matthew Walker, a British scientist, earned his PhD in neuroscience from the Medical Research Council in the UK, and subsequently became a Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. He is currently Professor of Neuroscience and Psychology at the University of California, Berkeley, and director of the Center for Human Sleep Science. Matt’s research focuses on the effect of sleep on human health and disease, brain, and body.
