5 Ways To Hep You Sleep When You're Anxious

August 09, 2018

 

Trying to fall asleep when having anxiety is the absolute worst and can seem impossible! Here are 5 ways to help you get the rest you need when your feeling anxious!

1. EXERCISE

Exercise has been found to lower anxiety and improve sleep. Moving your body in the morning or afternoon can help you get your sleeping and waking cycle on track! Try to avoid exercising right before sleep, as it can keep you awake.

2. PUT DOWN THE PHONE

Your phone, tablet, and TV emit light that keeps your brain awake, so try to limit them an hour before bedtime. Checking email or doing work right before bed can also trigger anxious thoughts and make it difficult to calm your brain. To keep a dark and relaxing environment consider trying a sleep mask! 

 

3. CALM DOWN 

Meditation, yoga, and breathing exercise can help you achieve a calm state of mind! If you practice techniques for calming your mind during the day, then it will be easier to trigger your relaxation response at night.

4. LIMIT CAFFEINE AND ALCOHOL

Drinking too much caffeine or consuming it too late in the day can increase anxiety and inhibit sleep. Consuming alcohol close to bedtime can also increase your heart rate and keep you up.

5. LAVENDER 

The scent of lavender has long been known to have sedative properties, decreasing heart rate and blood pressure. Try these sleep mists containing lavender for a better and more relaxing nights rest!
