Dear Pandemic, I’m having trouble sleeping. Help!


A: Now more than ever, we need to prioritize our sleep. Sufficient restorative sleep improves physical health (including immune function), psychological well-being, and cognition. Here are some tips from the Sleep Research Society to help you sleep during a pandemic.

Highlights include:

* Wake up at the same time every day.

* Get bright light in the morning and throughout the day — by opening the windows, curtains, etc. This also helps with alertness.

* Keep to a schedule for social interactions, meals, and exercise.

* Dim the lights at night and reduce or eliminate screen use before bedtime.
