People can deal with lack of sleep during stressful situations by talking about the issue with psychologists and even friends to help solve the problem. During these times, people should not stress themselves into sleeping because this is usually counterproductive. It is vital to engage in de-stressing exercises and limiting alcohol and caffeine intake. Furthermore, developing a sleep routine can help people during this transitioning. Engaging in physical activities and changing one’s diet can also help reduce stress and lead to better sleep.
