How to Protect Sleep During the COVID-19 Pandemic0

Researchers from the department of psychology at the University of Warwick have put together a poster with tips to protect sleep for students, but note it can also apply to the general population in a time when their mental health and sleep may be suffering.

The poster states:

  • Insomnia is a normal reaction to stress
  • Keep calm and don’t bring your worries to bed
  • Keep a regular sleep and work routine
  • Keep moving ad looking out for the sun

Nicole Tang, DPhil, CPsychol, from the department of psychology, says in a release, “My colleagues and I were motivated to put together a simple poster to share some tried and tested strategies for protecting sleep during stress at this exceptional time. In the midst of a major battle, it’s hard to think of sleep as a priority, but it is true! Tired soldiers make mistakes. Tired doctors, nurses, and healthcare workers don’t function optimally and get sick. For students with whom we have a pastoral role, we hope the tips will help them think of sleep and give themselves permission to rest properly and stay healthy.”
