What Questions Do You Have About Sleep?
Plagued by insomnia? Waking up in the night? Dubious about supplements? The Well desk wants to help.,
For many people, sleep has become an elusive dream during the pandemic. Terms like “coronasomnia” or “Covid-somnia” have sprung up to describe any sleep disruption caused by the stress of living through a global health crisis, including everything from insomnia to strange dreams or sacrificing precious hours of sleep just to get some time to yourself for fun. (That one’s become known as “revenge bedtime procrastination.”)
No matter what your sleep affliction is, it’s important to solve it. Making sure that you regularly get good sleep can boost your mental health, protect you from chronic diseases and according to a study published just this week, may even ward off dementia in middle age. So, the Well desk wants to help. We want to know what’s keeping you from great, consistent, restful sleep and what advice you need from experts. Are you looking for tips on how to fall back to sleep after waking? Wondering about medications or supplements?
