With emotions like fear, anxiety and stress running high, you might find it difficult to get a good night's sleep.
Whether you're tossing and turning, experiencing nightmares or vivid dreams or unable to fall asleep, this is a time when getting a solid night's slumber can seem difficult.
The National Sleep Foundation has released guidelines on how to sleep well during the coronavirus pandemic if you've been struggling.
Some of them include:
- having a set daily routine so your sleep schedule and days remain consistent
- reserving your bed for sleep and sex only, even if you're home all day — don't do work from your bed
- avoiding taking long naps, which could disrupt your sleep at night
- keeping up with your usual workout routine
- being mindful of how much time you spend in front of screens before bed
