During the COVID 19 Pandemic, a large systematic scoping review about sleep disorders confirmed that the pandemic and the related protocols that were implemented brought a high burden of sleep disorders across different population group. And when sleep is affected or compromised a person's mental and physical health may deteriorate. This workshop will introduce the attendees to the concept of sleep, insomnia, and some of the basic Cognitive-Behavioral techniques and exercises that they may observe to help themselves or maybe other people to recalibrate their sleep routines. This workshop could hopefully spark some research topic interests from the attending participants.
