Last month, the Heart Wellness Centre at Singapore Heart Foundation hosted a ‘Let’s Talk About Sleep’ webinar as part of their health talk series to help their cardiac rehab clients lead a healthier lifestyle. Actxa’s CEO, Lim Chun Hong, was invited as a speaker where he shared about the importance of sleep and how it is the foundation of a balanced and healthy lifestyle.
Sleep was once considered an inactive, or passive, state in which both the body and the brain ‘turned off’ to reset and recover from the day’s waking activities. However, this is no longer believed to be true as scientists have found that your brain goes through characteristic patterns of activities throughout each period of sleep and sometimes your brain can be more active when we are asleep than we are awake.

Our values stem from the need to be present: for the people and causes that matter, in our children’s lives for years to come, and for our parents to be in ours too.
We also believe that through bettering ourselves, we will better the people around us, and ultimately our communities and cities.
With the prevalence of easy-to-use smart devices in the pockets or on the wrists of people in all stages of life, we want to create a world where everyone can see how they’re really doing, which can often be different than how they feel they’re doing. Through awareness, of where we are and where we want to be, we can close the gap and make the right moves to journey towards our best selves.
