#5 – Sleep
Inconsistent sleep is a major anxiety trigger. Unfortunately, anxiety can also trigger a disruption in sleep patterns, which makes getting a good night’s sleep difficult but even more important.
To beat anxiety, make a regular sleep schedule a priority. Block out 7 to 9 hours for sleep each night. Create habits that signal to the body and mind that it’s time to sleep, such as using the bedroom only for sleeping and avoiding caffeine and screens (TV, phone, computer) prior to bed. Drinking a cup of chamomile tea may also help.
