How Lack of a Good Night’s Sleep & Anxiety May Be Related
Many people suffer from insomnia, either having difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep. It is associated with a wide range of health conditions, both physical and psychological. And, of course, it’s not unusual to toss and turn with anticipation on the night before a big speech or job interview.
WHEN ANXIETY COULD BE AN ISSUE
If you chronically find yourself lying awake, worried or agitated – about specific problems (like money), or nothing in particular – it might be a sign of an anxiety disorder. By some estimates, half of all people with an anxiety disorder experience sleep problems. Waking up feeling wired, your mind is racing, and you’re unable to calm yourself down can be signs of anxiety.
