If you’re having difficulty sleeping these days, we’ve got some tips for you. Jerry and Helen are sharing details about how you can get the most out of your sleeping hours. Using guidance from The Sleep Institute, we’ve learned it’s the little habits that help with getting to sleep, staying asleep, and staying energized during the day. Exercise, food and substance intake, screen time with blue light all affect how well we sleep. If you’re a caregiver, unpaid or professional, you need all the good sleep you can get! Caregiving uses up energy and might be experiencing more fatigue than usual due to the stress of COVID-19. Be intentional with your sleep hygiene.
