Secrets Of Dealing With Insomnia Due To Anxiety



insomnia can be described as an inability to sleep adequately for an extended period of time when someone has the desire to do so sleep disturbance is a key problem that impacts between 55 percent and 75 percent of people living with G AD many worries that lead to an increase in anxiety and tension in the body sometimes comes to the forefront when you start to lie down to sleep at night anything from an overview of your career to how good or bad you did dealing with sensations of panic to your finances to relationship issues can all start a cycle of worry at night that leads to insomnia the price you pay for this worrying habit at night affects you greatly the next day difficulties with concentration and forcing yourself to hold on to a positive outlook on life with a hazy mind can quickly leave you mentally physically and emotionally drained real help for insomnia doesn't come in a magic pill and I am living proof that you don't need to overcome your GED first in order to get a good night's sleep the key is recognizing what is really keeping you awake at night and applying proper methods for your unique situation in my experience no two insomniacs are the same but in order to get a good night's sleep you must start to believe that your day is in fact done when your head hits that pillow instead of feeling like you did not finish your day up yet see many people put so much pressure on themselves when dealing with GA D and getting to bed they feel they need to have had no panic attacks during the day eat perfectly completely get over the fear of their physical sensations of anxiety and so on just so that they can get a good night's sleep when in reality thinking in a way that you are a work in progress and that you don't have to have solved all your problems can lift much of the pressure off and can in fact lead to overcoming insomnia during my time as an insomniac I had great success with benzos at night to help me get a good night's sleep but the hangover from it wasn't pretty so I lowered the dose and experimented with a few different ones until I didn't experience that hangover and slept well this gave me a chance to rest up work on my new perspective that my day was in fact done and I didn't need to go over anything else in my head for the following day and also gave me a chance to start convincing myself that I didn't have to be completely cured from GA D and panic attacks in order to sleep the six point five to seven point five hours I needed per night having the proper mindset when you rest your head to sleep may not be the only thing that is keeping you awake though some other factors include a change in your environment noises from outside medication side effects changes in your sleep schedule sometimes related to jetlag and trying to sleep in extreme temperatures good sleep is a component of great health and is needed to overcome an anxiety disorder but when we try to put in more effort to try and sleep the harder it becomes and soon we begin to turn in bed seeking that dreamy state many people have had success getting out of bed and having a glass of milk with honey or going for a slow walk before getting to bed again when they can't sleep the key here is not to keep lying in bed hoping to sleep and putting more pressure on yourself get out of bed and do something relaxing and then try again

  2. Its crazy how some people can sleep so good in secound i was at the bank the othere day and i seen people falling asleep in there chairs like damn why me god i dont suffer from anxiety or stress that much but when i dont sleep that stress me out im starting to think it might be genetics because I have tried a lot of things from teas eating good natural stuff meditation pills weed ect

  3. Damnn ive been suffering from insomnia some time now like long long time. Sucks Some times i toss and turn i get few ahours of sleep and then it hard to go back to sleep then in the morning im so tired ugh it affects everything like i feel tired at work n i love my job but.i stay positive and still keep moving foward. I tried benzo they help me sleep like 6 to hours 8 but i dont want to take drugs the side affects suck like if u dont have them the comedown of pills is real bad

  4. Zoloft works best, I had problems trying to eat anything and I couldn’t, about 2 weeks of being on Zoloft and I was able to eat a whole Christmas meal

  5. What about people who are recovering from pregnisone. I'm 3 weeks out from my last dose and still dealing with waking up 4 maybe 5 hours later and can't get back to sleep. People have said that it can take weeks or months before your body gets back in rhythm after prednisone.

  6. It's 4am and I'm still awake. It effects everything I do and the Dr. doesn't want to give me anything to help. This thing with overdoses and bad drugs has kept the helpful drugs away from people who need them. Some people have much more serious problems with insomia than others. I have fought this battle since I was a young child and I am 59 now. Wish I could get some sleep.

  7. If you guys suffer from Insomnia you should definitely check out the new invention to treat it. It's called EBB Insomnia Therapy. It doesn't use drugs or electric currents but it cools the forehead with a therapeutic temperature using thermal cooling liquid, which slows down brain activity. It's literally the only FDA approved device for reducing latency to stage 1 and stage 2 sleep. Just came out in 2018. It's currently available in multiple states. The clinical studies show that 4/5 (80%) of users say it helped them sleep. It's the one device I've found designed specifically to combat primary insomnia.

  8. The words he used are wrong. It's not a worrying "habit". It is a worrying illness. Also benzodiazipines can work but they aren't very healthy, CBD is probably the best thing out there at least for me personally.

  9. I've been investigating treating sleeplessness naturally and discovered a fantastic website at Trevs Sleep Blueprint (google it if you are interested)

  10. Does someone have this fear of insomnia? Basically, I had a really bad week months ago where I just couldn't sleep because of my anxiety being very high. I was near suicidal because I still had to go to work in the day and be miserable the whole day. I was so tired and sleepy everywhere but the bedroom. My sleep has been better but there is this dread from the time wake up or anytime of the day, thinking of the "what if" I don't fall asleep ever again and it has had me obsessing over the littlest noise or going off my sleep schedule (3pm as my work is from 4am to 12:30nn and I wake up at 2am…) and my anxiety acts up. It has completely cut off my social life. The second the day ends at the office I am racing for home so I can prepare and do my pre-bedtime sleep ritual to make sure I didn't end up having a crappy night. This is all well and good but when emergencies happen or like when the neighbors become noisy at night, it really frustrates me and I find myself crying, weeping like a baby because of all the noise and convinced I am going to go down another spiral which I KNOW IS A STUPID Thought as I always fall asleep as long as I am not forcing it. It's just the daily anxiety of going to bed, driving myself into worrying over something that I know time and time doesn't actually happen. That God always sustains me through the bad night's through the crappy days and yet I csnt seem to shut off this part of my brain with the stupid what if I don't fall asleep again thought. I need to be able to be flexible with my hours because of my job and I am restricted by this annoying thought process.

  11. Ever Since I started out adulthood, I could not have enough sleep. I`m on day 7 of this sleep plan “Yοyο Fawam” (Google it) and already feel much better. I’d never thought I could accomplish Eight hours of sleep again. This plan is just incredible. It states a few reasons and a solution for several cases of sleeping disorders. I`ve got plenty of treatment plans to choose from.

  12. Since I started out adulthood, I couldn`t have enough sleep. I started this sleep program “Yοyο Fawam” (Google it 7 days ago and recognized good changes on my sleep. I’d never imagined I could achieve Eight hours of sleep again. This is a very beneficial plan. I just read about the causes of sleeping disorders and different ways to cure it. I have a lot of treatment plans to select from.

  13. That describes me very well on a daily basis. I have been taking melatonin and that helped for a while but didn't seem to work anymore.

    It's true I eat dinner very late due to work and it is so hard to sleep after that. 🙁
