If you’re wondering, ‘how to wake up well,’ you’ve come to right place. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve slept through alarm clocks, turned off my alarm clock, felt completely unrested – and the list goes on. Mornings aren’t my thing, even when I get 20 plus hours of sleep. At first, I thought I was all alone but I quickly realized that this is something many anxiety sufferers can relate to.
Anxiety and Sleep Don’t Mix Well
With a little bit of research, I quickly came to notice that anxiety and sleep very rarely go hand-in-hand. In fact, it’s more like anxiety and lack of sleep are best buds. But why? When you suffer from anxiety or any mental illness, your mind is a battlefield. Your thoughts are constantly racing and although you’re completely exhausted, your thoughts keep you awake. Even if you do get a chance to slip off, anxiety sufferers are harassed by their racing mind in their dreams.
I don’t know how many times I’ve just given up and gotten out of bed because I was writing an article in my sleep – all night. I had work on my mind prior to bed, so it took over once I actually fell asleep. Keep in mind, this is only an example of the 5,000,000,000 zillion times I didn’t wake up well.
When anxiety takes over, as it seems to do every night, you’re restless and unable to get into the deep sleep needed to repair your body. So you can sleep for as many hours as you want but you’ll never wake up feeling well.
I’m preaching to the choir, right?
