One of the most common struggles I have been hearing lately is that individuals have been having a hard time falling asleep and/or staying asleep since the onset of the coronavirus.
This makes sense, considering many people are dealing with changes in their day to day routines. There’s also a lot of thoughts and worries circling around, which can make it hard to relax and fall asleep.
