I Can't Sleep

My sleeping pattern has changed as of late and I've been doing research online on how to improve it. The following is what I found:
  • Limit my screen time before bed - The National Sleep foundation recommends to stop using electronics at least 30 min before bed.
  • Better diet - Too much sugar, especially before bed, can definitely have a negative impact on sleep but not eating a balance diet can also affect sleep.
  • Control/Minimize Stress - A 2013 study has shown that stress impact the quality of sleep.
  • Exercise - "People who engage in at least 30 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise may see a difference in sleep quality that same night" according to
  • Going Outside - According to WebMD, spending time outside may deliver better sleep.
  • Read before bed - Studies have shown that reading before bed help with sleep.
If you're like me, then you already know most of the stuff mentioned above but you may not have been able to implement them properly since Covid started. I mean, I don't want to blame all my problems on Covid but, seriously, we need to get vaccinated ASAP so that we can get back some level of normalcy around here.
