It can be hard to sleep when stressed. Senior Sleep Scientist Dr Gemma Paech offers her advice on sleeping during these uncertain times.
“If you are unwell and you feel tired, it’s acceptable to sleep as much as possible – you might be sleeping for 10 or 12 hours a day so your body recovers. But once you recover, try to get back into a normal routine.”
“It’s normal to feel anxious, and for this to disturb your sleep. But if it’s happening regularly you should speak to your GP.” For more tips on sleep, read this article by Gemma.
