Prioritize sleep

Don’t just say, “Well I can’t sleep and that happens and no need to be a baby about it.” It’s especially important right now to get your rest. Research has found a link between sleep deprivation and depression, so you aren’t being a baby about it if you take it seriously. It is serious. Identify things you can change. Do noises wake you? Get great earplugs and a white noise machine. Is it the rising sun? Get some blackout curtains. Do you get up to pee too much? Cut liquids at 7pm. Assess the issues and address them.
