Coronavirus anxiety is real. And it probably has you staring at the ceiling until 2am.
The pandemic has likely changed your daily routine in a big way. You might be stressed—and not sleeping very well. Or maybe you’re having the weirdest dreams of your life. No matter what your relationship is with your sleep right now, here are some tips so you can clear your mind and get some much needed zzz's...
Better sleep means better memory, energy, and metabolism. All of those things are even more important if your commute right now is from your bed to your kitchen table and back again.
You’ve probably heard eight hours is the golden rule. Turns out, it depends on your age.
Newborns sleep 14 to 17 hours. Toddlers should get 11 to 14 hours. Adults are supposed to clock in seven to nine hours. And adults over 65 should get seven to eight hours.
Yup. Sometimes counting sheep doesn't cut it. It’s important to relax your mind before you drift off. Some say you should meditate before bed or consider taking melatonin. Reminder: melatonin is a hormone your body naturally produces. It gets ‘turned on’ at night and basically signals to your brain that it’s time to go to bed. And some people like to take supplements to help them fall asleep. But here are some other, lesser-known tricks that have worked for us.
It’s cliché to use “get more sleep” as a solution to every problem (read: all your COVID-19 anxieties right now.) But your relationship with your pillow is one of the most important ones in your life. Prioritize it, and your mind and body will thank you later.
