Help with sleeping

We all have evenings when we find it hard to fall asleep or we wake up in the night. You may also find this is happening more often during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Good quality sleep makes a big difference to how we feel, mentally and physically, so it is important to get enough.

Some ways to help you sleep are:

  • Get into a daily routine.
  • Manage your worries.
  • Prepare your body for sleep.
  • Create a restful environment.
  • Confront sleeplessness.
