Perceived Stress Scale (Cohen et al, 1983) and Insomnia severity index (ISI) (Charles M.Morin et al,1993) were used to study the mentioned variables for the study. The data’s were established through SPSS Version 23. Insomnia is a highly prevalent condition and carries significant burden in terms of functional impairment, health care costs, and increased risk of depression especially during the COVID-19 lockdown. Perceived stress is the perception of stress and the degree to which one’s situation is appraised as stressful and focuses on the role of appraised stress levels in the etiology of diseases and behavioral disorders. The results of the study can be used to come up with possible interventions for stress management which can decrease the likelihood of insomnia and the study opens way to more researches to be conducted in this field with the changed life pattern during the COVID-19 era. The present study is highly relevant and significant in this context.
