Sleep – and doing it well – has become a huge issue, even for those who never had much trouble with it, pre-pandemic. On the bright side, the new, slowed-down routine has given the sleep-deprived time to focus on straightening out their sleep issues. By the time we get to the other side of the pandemic, those new, good sleep habits will be firmly entrenched.
Poor or inadequate sleep takes a big bite out of how well you learn, how clearly you think, how well you age, how effectively you fend off illness, your mood, your weight and yes, even your sex drive. So, if you think sleeping like crap every now and then is no big deal, think again.
