What is 'Coronasomnia'? Here's what to do if you are going through it
Insomnia has been a condition that can be seen among many people, but amid the pandemic, the situation has gone worse, which led to a term called 'Coronasomnia'.
Coronasomnia can happen for various reasons, and here are a few factors that can lead to this condition and how you can deal with it.
The fear, the stress, is never leaving. The fear of getting infected, streaming and watching the news all the time, learning about more death news is what not letting us sleep.
Losing a job, not getting paid even while working, career instability and other factors give us more financial burden over time.
Changing the daily routine
The whole routine has been changed since last year. Now we work from home; there's no physical activity, no vacations, only work all the time, and no rest is what giving us more stress.
Apart from all of this, anxiety attacks, shortness of breath, depression, nightmares don't let you sleep.
Insomnia is a condition where a person suffers lack of enough sleep which further leads to various severe problems, including hypertension, diabetes, and stroke. And lack of sleep means deprivation of immunity, which means you can be more susceptible to the Covid-19 virus, leading to more stress and anxiety, causing no sleep at all. So, it's a vicious cycle.
How to deal with it?
Stay away from the news as much as you can.
Watch good movies. Listen to good music.
Eat good and healthy food.
Go back to your hobbies. Paint, sing, dance, do whatever you like.
Decrease your screen timing.
Meditate before sleeping and try to sleep at least 7 to 8 hours.
