Make sure they’re sleeping

Check in on how they are sleeping. There is a strong link between sleep deprivation and depression, says Johns Hopkins Medicine, so it’s especially important that somebody who is going through something gets enough sleep. Bring over calming teas that can help with sleep. Provide them with guided meditations they can listen to to help them sleep. If they are still taking on too much work/responsibilities that is interfering with getting adequate time to sleep, encourage them to cut back on some activities for now. Get them a sound machine that might help them sleep. Just ask about their sleep routine/hygiene and see if you can provide some assistance.
