Sleep disturbance and insomnia are prevalent problems for the more than 15 million cancer survivors in the United States. If not addressed, poor-quality sleep can negatively impact physical and psychological recovery from cancer diagnosis and treatment. Cancer survivors are increasingly turning to integrative therapies to improve sleep and optimize their health. The purpose of this article is to review the evidence for the use of nonpharmacological integrative therapies to improve sleep health… 
Living with persistent insomnia after cancer: A qualitative analysis of impact and management.
TLDR
Insomnia was found to have a detrimental and pervasive impact on cancer survivors' quality of life, which persisted long into survivorship, and sleep health should be integrated as a key aspect of cancer treatment and rehabilitation, much like maintaining a healthy diet and appropriate levels of physical activity.
Effects of physical activity on sleep problems in breast cancer survivors: a meta-analysis

The results support sleep measurement as a meaningful biobehavioral variable in cancer survivorship and indicates that sleep investigators should be aware that choice of methodology might influence concordance with different classes of immune parameters.
Sleep Disruption, Fatigue, and Depression as Predictors of 6-Year Clinical Outcomes following Allogeneic Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation.
TLDR
Biobehavioral symptoms, particularly sleep disruption and fatigue interference, predicted an increased risk for 6-year relapse and mortality after HCT, and offer specific targets for intervention to improve HCT outcomes.
Cancer-related accelerated ageing and biobehavioural modifiers: a framework for research and clinical care
TLDR
How cancer therapies can enhance physiological ageing processes and the potential for interventions that could potentially ameliorate these long-term adverse events in patients receiving active treatment for cancer and in cancer survivors are described.
The effect of three-circle post standing (Zhanzhuang) qigong on the physical and psychological well-being of college students
TLDR
This study will investigate the effects of qigong's anxiety-release by SAS, and will analyze the coordinates of EEG and heart rate variability (HRV) signals before and after three-circle post standingqigong (TCPSQ) practice, and to analyse their synergies by complex signal process method.
Effects of activity tracker-based counselling and live-web exercise on breast cancer survivors' sleep and waking time during Italy's COVID-19 lockdown.
TLDR
