Experts reveal why Twitter users claim they have ‘collective insomnia’

Most of the world’s population is currently in lockdown in order to slow down the spread of the coronavirus. Aside from social distancing and washing your hands, experts also advise everyone to take care of their physical and emotional well-being. This is because strict home quarantine may trigger an unhealthy diet, psychological problems, and sleep deprivation.

Speaking of which, Twitter users claimed that ‘collective insomnia’ happened last March 30 after the #cantsleep started to trend on the online platform. This is specifically evident in posts from the United Kingdom, where there are 22,141 confirmed cases as of March 30.

Here are some of their tweets:


In an interview with the Daily Mail, sleep expert James Wilson said that the ongoing global health crisis has triggered anxiety in most people–causing them to stay up late at night and depriving them of sleep. Given this, Wilson suggests not watching the news before going to bed to maintain a “coronavirus-free mind” and help lessen that “panicky feeling.”

Watching or reading something funny will also allow your brain to think happy thoughts and give your mind the ability to rest for the night.

Lastly, it is suggested that by establishing a new routine–like getting more exercise and avoiding longer naps–will help in getting us adequate sleep at night.

Here’s to hoping you sleep well tonight!
