Think You Have Sleep Anxiety? Learn How To Sleep Better

Think You Have Sleep Anxiety? Learn How To Sleep Better

One of the most frustrating aspects of sleep anxiety can be how difficult it is to figure out whether its symptoms are the cause or a result of poor sleep. Often, it can be difficult to pin down if sleep anxiety is a symptom of sleep deprivation, because of how dependent the two are on each other.

Taking a holistic approach to these kinds of symptoms is the most effective way to ensure they don’t resurface. Consulting a doctor, taking the time to practice mindfulness and meditation, sleeping on the best mattress you can find, and creating a strict sleep routine can help overcome and manage your sleep anxiety more effectively.

What Is Sleep Anxiety?

In the simplest terms, sleep anxiety refers to feelings of heightened worry and fear experienced leading up to sleep. Sleep anxiety can exacerbate conditions such as insomnia and sleep deprivation, while also being a symptom of both those things.

In the United States, more than 40 million people suffer from long-term chronic sleep disorders. Understanding the role sleep anxiety has to play in this can really shift how we think about treating sleep disorders, and ensure we’re able to work through issues with our sleep in a way that feels truly productive.
