I think most of us can relate to this right now. I myself and so many others are stressing about work, jobs, homeschooling and let’s admit some of us are lying awake at 3:00 am trying to figure out what to do.  If coronavirus fears are keeping you awake at night, you are not alone, sleep experts have passed along some tips to help you get some good sleep.

In the daytime, take a 30-minute catnap and enjoy some natural light, It will help your body stick to a consistent sleep schedule. In the evening try taking a hot shower or bath before bed to calm your body down and raise your melatonin level.

Keep connecting with others, talk to friends and family so you won’t have a feeling of loneliness. Get some exercise. You don’t have to sweat a lot to give your body a good jolt that will help you sleep later on. Stick to a sleep schedule so that you can be consistent.

Other tips for better sleep during the crisis include writing down your worries in a journal. This way, your brain isn’t pondering problems before you go to bed. Limit your screen time before bedtime Also, keep an eye on your alcohol intake. Cutting back can also help you get better rest.
