Want To Feel Less Anxious And Sleep Better? Try This

Anxiety disorder is one of the most common mental health problems that often go unaddressed. Anxiety also happens to be correlated with sleep. The more anxious you are, the less likely you are to fall asleep.

But it doesn’t just stop there, sleep deprivation can cause your anxiety to spike, making it one big vicious circle. So what’s the most plausible solution to this problem? Well, it regulates your anxiety to sleep better.

Which is why we have put together a few methods that can help you do exactly that. 

DISCLAIMER: Before we get into this we do want you to understand, reducing anxiety and dealing with it is challenging, that being said, there are specific treatments that help.

1.Meditation

Meditation is a mind and body practice. But contrary to popular belief it’s not always about having control over all your thoughts, instead, it’s about fine tuning the noise in order to pull your attention towards one specific act: breathing. This process helps you to focus on the now rather than having your thoughts in fifty other directions with no purpose or goal.

2.Journal

Anxiety is often brought about by thoughts that overwhelm us. But, when we pin them down to the T, our thoughts seem to appear less scary. One of the tried and tested methods to do is journaling. Journaling allows you to process your thoughts and understand their reality. Once you do so, you can identify the root of these thoughts further channeling your time to find a solution for the problem. Journaling this process makes it more cohesive, easy to comprehend, and way less overwhelming.

3.Schedule worry time

This practice is included in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, a common talk therapy method used as treatment. All you have to do is set out time every single day as worry time, wherein you allow your thoughts to freely worry. This way you help address your stressful emotions and thoughts instead of brushing them under the carpet or worse wait for them to build up and get more overwhelming with time.

There are a number of other small minor adjustments you can make in order to sleep better. For instance, try having a nighttime routine wherein you indulge in activities that make you happy. You could also make sure the environment you sleep in feels exceedingly safe and comfortable.

Anxiety can be a tricky mental disorder, but with these practices, you will definitely be in a calmer place before you decide to hit the hay.
