Sleep experts found that after the earthquake and Tsunami in Japan that interacting with others made the difference between sleeping poorly and sleeping well. Visit with your neighbors. Help your neighbors. Contact your friends. In short, don’t isolate yourself.
Interacting with others offers you a perspective, offers you a shoulder to cry upon, offers you the chance to help others, and offers you the social support you NEED to experience less stress and sleep a bit better after the natural disaster such as a hurricane or flood.
