During this period of Lockdown many of us are having trouble sleeping and its no surprise with COVID-19 being a worrying time. 
 
A new survey commissioned by three leading bodies championing sleep, ‘Sleepstation’, ‘The Sleep Council’ and ‘The Sleep Charity’, report that 43% are now finding it harder to fall asleep, with unease around the current COVID-19 situation affecting sleep for 75%. Interestingly, it also found that women are more likely to suffer from anxiety associated with coronavirus and are twice as likely to report feeling stressed compared to men. 
 
Sleep can be disturbed in many ways with feelings such as feeling restless, waking up during the night, wide awake, having nightmares and finding it hard to relax and switch off. Sleep is so important for our health and well-being, it can affect memory, immune system, energy levels, mood, appetite, your mental health and even your happiness! So, we perhaps need to make some changes to our day to get sleeping better and in turn feeling better. 
 
Today was my first day volunteering at Cerebral Palsy Midlands and it has been a really positive experience. I have really enjoyed getting to know the amazing service users and staff and finding out about some of the great activities that take place here. Today I also had the opportunity to observe and take part in a Tai-Chi session with some of the service users, which was fantastic. I really enjoyed the session and got to see service users with varying degrees of physical ability engaging with and really enjoying the activity.
