Mental Health & Sleep: Anxiety

Anxiety doesn’t stop when the sun goes down. Often quite the opposite. Sleep is often badly affected. What can we do to improve the situation and reduce our stress and feelings of anxiety?

We discuss the psychological, physical and behavioral aspects of anxiety. Social anxiety, phobias, panic disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder. All these are relevant topics. Do cognitive behavioral therapy and stimulus control therapy work? Let’s discuss sleep restriction, sleep hygiene, relaxation training and biofeedback. Perhaps CBD oil (cannabidiol) might be appropriate in some circumstances for the effect THC tetra-hydrocannibinol produces. If you are struggling with sleep and anxiety, see your doctor to get a referral to a sleep clinic.
