If you choose to participate,
you’ll start with Part 1: a set of surveys that ask questions about demographic
information, personality characteristics, your typical emotions, emotional
coping strategies and behaviors related to sleep, and your experience of the
COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing so far. You can do that right now and
it should take around 20-30 minutes. When you finish Part 1, you’ll be given
the chance to continue on or end your participation.
If you choose to continue
with Part 2, you’ll complete a morning and nighttime daily diary for the next
15 days (this will take about 10-15 minutes each day). Each morning, you'll
indicate your sleep quality and report on any dreams you can remember from that
night. Each evening, you'll tell us about your daily emotion, emotion
regulation success, COVID-19 media consumption, and subjective feeling of
social isolation for that day.
15 days after you participate
in Part 1, we’ll write you and ask if you’d like to participate in Part 3. You’ll complete follow-up questionnaires about
sleep related behaviors, emotions, and your experience of the COVID-19 pandemic
and social distancing for the past two weeks.
