If you struggle with getting enough sleep, or even falling asleep in the first place, just going to bed might give you anxiety. Luckily, according to the experts, there are few things you can try that might reduce any sleep anxiety in the bedroom. One involves removing a popular nightstand item.
Evidently, your alarm clock could be intensifying your sleep anxiety, but not because you’re anticipating your morning alarm.
Unfortunately, most of us need an alarm clock. While some might be fine with switching to a wake-up light, many people need that blaring sound from a phone or clock to get going. Oddly enough, though, that’s not what can intensify anxiety. The harm comes if you’re prone to waking up in the middle of the night to check the time.
