As the world adjusts to the new normal, that stress is even affecting sleep.

It’s a cycle. When we are stressed, we can’t sleep well. And when we can’t sleep well, we become more inefficient causing more stress in our day-to-day lives. Stressful right?

Psychology experts Dana McMakin and Aaron Mattfeld have provided tips on how to cope with stress and ease the process of healthy sleeping:

  • Prioritize your sleep by getting at least seven hours for adults.
  • Wake up at the same time every day or within 30 minutes of that time.
  • Have a “wind-down” routine one hour before bedtime of positive thinking or activities.
  • Once in bed, focus on imagining and savoring the best parts of your day or week.
  • Exercise for at least ten minutes a day.
