Sleep was at an all-time low before the COVID-19 madness. According to the CDC, about one in three adults were not getting enough sleep pre-COVI. And now, the worry and anxiety that comes from a global pandemic can shake up even the best sleeper’s sleep. Your health, memory, decision-making, MOOD, and even your creativity can take a hit if you don’t get enough sleep. Let’s fix that.
Here are natural sleep aids that work without habit-forming meds and products to cozy up your bedroom for better sleep. Good night y’all!
