2. The relationship between anxiety and sleep

Table of Contents

Simply put, sleeping resets our brain. It resets our thoughts, fears, concerns and anything else that might be plaguing our mind during our busy days. It gives us time to recover, rest, and refresh our minds. If you don’t get enough sleep you will overload your thoughts with stress and anxiety by not giving your brain enough and body enough rest.

Power naps are awesome! #

Yes they are! Sometimes during the day when you start feeling that stress and anxiety creeping up on you a 20 or 30 minute power nap is exactly what you need to give you that extra mental boost. It truly does wonders for anxiety. If you can get away with a small power nap at work, in your car, or wherever you may be please do so. If you truly do fall asleep and nap properly you will wake up feeling refreshed and your stress and anxiety greatly subsided.
