Re: Lack of sleep due to anxiety/stress?

I just posted a thread on anxiety and sleep. Really is no easy answer except to cleanse your mind of those worries before you go to bed. Get a notepad and write down your problems on one side and solutions on another. I have an anxiety workbook that has a "worry worksheet" where you do this and it helps. If you cant sleep dont lie in bed but do some light activity that will distract you until you feel tired again. Lying in bed will just keep you focused on your worries and you wont be able to sleep. Also go to bed at the same time and only use your bed for sleeping. Good luck. Hopefully our minds will let us sleep tonight.
