Anxiety and sleep deprivation relates to grave dangers: How lifestyle changes and homeopathic products can help.
Unfortunately it’s very natural to feel anxious from time to time. You might have an exam coming up, or a big presentation at work. You might be meeting your girlfriend’s parents for the first time, or be meeting with the bank to apply for a loan. Anxiety brings with it nervousness, apprehension, fear and worry. You might find yourself unable to sleep because you can’t stop thinking about what is coming up.
But for a lot of people, anxiety is not just when something big is looming; some people suffer from overwhelming fear and panic that seems to have no logical source, and no reasonable signs of relief. This kind of anxiety can be relentless, can plague a person day and night, and bring with it many terrifying physical symptoms that make the sufferer feel like they are having a heart attack. People with a diagnosed anxiety disorder may be prescribed medication to manage their symptoms.
Anxiety and sleep deprivation are a terrible cycle of suffering; people with anxiety have trouble sleeping, and people having trouble sleeping are more prone to anxiety. It’s a vicious cycle. Fortunately there are many natural and homeopathic remedies that you can try to help calm your mind and body, lessening your anxiety and helping you go to sleep.
Some things you can do, apart from taking medication, to reduce anxiety:
Exercise, even very mild exercise like going for a walk, can help your anxiety. It releases a number of hormones in your body that naturally make you happier, including endorphins, serotonin and oxytocin.
Petting an animal, like your pet cat or dog, can assist with reducing anxiety. Research supports that this is a helpful activity for making people feel calmer.
