Healthy Sleep During COVID-19

The introduction of the novel coronavirus (known as COVID-19) has brought with it changes to nearly every aspect of life. Schools are closed, many are working from home, and stress levels are elevated. Not only has COVID-19 posed a risk to physical health, but it has taken a toll on moods, work productivity, and social relationships. Many people feel more fatigued, overwhelmed, and anxious than ever before. Finding ways to cope with these feelings is an important aspect of keeping your body healthy during these uncertain times.
