BALTIMORE — Since the start of the pandemic, a lot of people's sleep schedules have been out of wack and it's causing what some experts are calling coronasomnia, insomnia caused by the pandemic.

They say there are many different causes of insomnia. For some people, it's because of anxiety.

For others, it's because of a lack of routine.

"You need to be very regular with your habits so getting up the same time everyday, going to bed the same time," said Marc Frost, Medical Director of the Sleep Lab at Dent Institute.

Experts suggests anyone struggling with coronasomnia to create better habits.

Which means no screens when you're trying to fall asleep at night. No caffeine in the afternoon and try to get some exercise in.
