Tips for better sleep during the Covid-19 Pandemic

  1. Deal with the negativity:

Though it’s equally important to stay updated about the current affairs during this crisis, make sure you don’t spend much and get involved in the prime bulletin. The news andmedia have a significant impact on altering one’s mood levels. It’s good to get updated just once in a day – but not all the time.

  1. Stay active in the day time

The more active you are in the morning, the easier it will be for you to sleep in the night. This is because you spend most of the day doing one or the other thing and feel exhausted by the end of the night. Doing regular exercises, household work, cleaning, or cooking, and washing – anything from keeping you engaged throughout the day, works well for better sleep . Along with this, make sure to avoid watching television or the news at night as it can impact your mind & lead to a distorted sleep.

  1. Schedule your days

If you used to wake up at 7 in the morning, try getting up at the same time, even during the lockdown days- also if you don’t have to go to work, or take your kids to school. If you maintain a regular timetable, your body will set its internal clock accordingly and optimize your sleep quality.

Avoid using too much of smartphones

Now that you have no one to meet or any social gatherings to attend, it’s common to spend most of your smartphone watching Netflix, movies, playing games, chatting, video calling, etc. Too much use of smartphones during bedtime will hurt your sleep quality. Turn off screens at least one hour before bedtime and prepare your body and mind for sleep by listening to calming music, or an audiobook.

  1. Avoid the use of alcohol or caffeine close to bedtime

Drinking a coffee cup in the morning can keep you up throughout the day, but caffeine at night can have a reverse effect on sleep. Avoid drinking alcohol and caffeinated drinksbefore bedtime, as it can dramatically reduce the quality of your sleep.

Final word:

While it’s common to experience stress & anxiety during such extraordinary times, it’s also important to look for ways to overcome these feelings. Make sure to follow the tips enlisted in the article & don’t forget to spend some time with yourself. By doing this, you will be able to be happy, stay positive & improve your quality of life.
