What causes sleep anxiety?
How do you deal with sleep anxiety? Not exactly a small-talk kind of topic yet many suffer from sleep anxiety. Did you know that 40% of Americans suffer from Insomnia and worrying about it only makes it worse. There are some basic practices to employ if you are having difficulties.
Research shows, neurofeedback has the ability to diffuse the worry and positively impact sleep because it works certain areas of the brain that allow and regulate our sleep. Neurofeedback rewards your brain during the training process to create healthier patterns. Falling asleep and staying asleep is what we all deserve and proper sleep hygiene is important. Some additional ways to help facilitate sleep hygiene are to go to bed a specific time every night and wake at the same time every morning. Additionally, avoiding too much caffeine before bed and resisting the urge to nap in the afternoon would also help improve your sleep. Limiting our activities in the bedroom to sleep and sex, and elimination of distractions such as television and computers helps the brain to find an optimal restful state, neurofeedback can help ensure the restful state is reached more consistently, quicker, and with greater quality.
