Anxiety and anxious symptoms are common within the modern world. With so many things to do within a day, it can be difficult to turn those anxious thoughts off when it's time to go to sleep. In this article, we will be discussing ways you can reduce anxiety before falling asleep.
It is important to mention that anxiety does not just include overthinking, general nervousness and doubt, but can extend to physical symptoms like a fast heart rate or, most importantly, insomnia. Even though your body is tired from being anxious, it produces stress hormones, which can cause you to have difficulty falling asleep.
We are here to tell you that it can get better. Anxiety will always exist, but learning how to manage those feelings is important. Here are some ways to start:
Breathe: We know, when you are feeling anxious the last thing you want to hear is “Just take a deep breath.” Deep breathing exercises can be beneficial to turn your focus to something positive.
Write it out: Seeing your thoughts on paper can release them, and make you rationalize them.
Question your thoughts: Getting to the root of your anxiousness can simplify some complicated emotions.
