Ask Daniel #54: To Kevin, Sam, Luke and Mary

Kevin slept well for 6 months but after a bout of tinnitus sleep deteriorated. He’s meditated and done breathing exercises for hours only to get 2-3 hours of sleep. What to do? Kevin is suffering greatly from insomnia and is planning to get out of bed 3 am every morning. Is this a good plan? Luke is enjoying watching TV in bed instead of on a couch and wonders if a slight tension is normal? Mary misses a time before the isolation of COVID. She knows that she will sleep better once quarantine is over and does not want to take sleeping pills.
