COVID-19 & Sleep

There have been plenty TED talks emphasizing the need of sleep during these unprecedented times.  I never bothered to know more about it. My roommate got sick. He felt weak. There’s no proof of COVID yet, there’s an unconscious fear between both of us.

Delving on the what-if the situation, I hit the bed early and the unconscious fears crept in scaring me about the COVID-19. Consciously, I didn’t bother about it but, the COVID worried me. It disturbed my sleep and I turned anxious more than ever.

Dreams flashed bringing all my dear ones at one place and the conversation, sequences are all about death, grief, sorrow.

Take it easy. Don’t worry. I know it but, emotionally, I feel different than what I think. My sleep affects my day. And my thoughts affect my mood and eventually my work.

It’s important to address these issues more than ever. The anxiety, suspenseful situations. It’s a lot to take in!
