How To Get A Good Night Sleep With Anxiety?

What exactly is Sleep Anxiety? Sleep anxiety could be preventing you from getting a good night's sleep.

Sleep anxiety occurs when you begin to dread going to bed. If you fear going to sleep because you know you'll wake up anxious and frustrated, worrying about how the time between now and having to get up in the morning is quickly running out, you may be on the path to developing sleep anxiety. It's time to reorganize your sleeping habits.

Tips for a good night’s sleep with Anxiety

1 . Have a Calming Bedroom - This is a crucial advice for getting a good night's sleep.

As you may expect, having a relaxing bedroom is critical for entering into the sleep zone. You want your bedroom to make you feel comfortable and ready for a good night's sleep before you go to bed.

A relaxing setting can emerge from a variety of factors, including:

Keeping a clean room: I strive (and sometimes fail) to keep my bedroom tidy. My room used to be so untidy that I had to wade over mounds of things to get to my bed, and it's only now that it's clean that I realize how much this can effect your attitude. My room now consists primarily of a bed, locker, and wardrobe. I perform a weekly tidy to keep the mess at bay.

Colors: My walls are completely white, and my bedsheets are either white or grey. The curtains are the same. I avoided using any bright, vivid colours because certain colours can promote energy while discouraging sleep (red for example). All white seems to be a good and dull relaxing color palette. However, I'm looking for a forest scene wall tapestry to hang behind the bed. I find being outside in nature to be very peaceful, and I hope to incorporate this into my space. Alternatively, I'd want to paint the wall behind the bed green. My favorite and most relaxing color.

Use soothing lighting. I have a salt lamp as well as fairy lights. These are the only lights I use in my bedroom at night. I want the room to be a relaxing retreat, and these more ambient lighting options make me feel right at home.

Regularly change your bedding. What could be better than slipping into fresh, clean bedding?

Essentially, you want your place to be as comfortable as possible. Doesn't that make sense? You want your body and mind to be able to relax before going to bed. You want it to be as clean, peaceful, and comfortable as possible. So, sure, this is a pretty vital technique for getting a decent night's sleep when you're anxious. I now like going to bed in my bedroom.
