It is hard to find a person who hasn’t heard about such things as anxiety and insomnia. Nowadays both the conditions have become so widespread that they are almost considered normal state of things. Moreover, these two interconnect so much that more and more the cases of anxiety insomnia are talked about.
Strangely enough, the modern world has become so much more advanced in comparison even with what was 50 years from now and it seems that all the problems should be solved already. Yet, all these advances in technology, science and even medicine, all the new invented appliances, apparatus, and gadgets seem not to alleviate life conditions but instead create more complications. The speed of life increased so dramatically that a person is in the state of constant stress and is frequently unable to keep up. At the same time we tend to get stuck in a very routine circle of life that only includes commuting from home to work and back either by personal transport or by public – still there isn’t much variety. We get physically weak due to the lack of activity and sedentary lifestyles and at the same time more vulnerable to all stressful factors. We get more anxious. We sleep less. We get anxiety insomnia.
As it has been aforementioned, a lot of people nowadays suffer from anxiety insomnia. Generally, there are several types of insomnia ? early, middle and late insomnia. In terms of the modern world all of them can easily be evoked by anxiety. The things that trouble person, panic attacks that he may suffer, any other similar conditions can all be a reason of a person’s inadequate sleep and its scarcity.
There are different ways to treat anxiety insomnia that range from traditional medications and end up with alternative ones. Every person chooses the option that seems best suitable for him or her individually.
Anxiety insomnia is frequently met in people who has just undergone certain serious and debilitating life changes and also in people with certain mental disorders. In such cases traditional medicine treatment is recommended. Generally short-acting calming medications such as benzodiazepines are prescribed in such situations. Ambien refers to a group of sleep aids and can also be prescribed for anxiety insomnia. However it can only be done if a person does not have any kind of chemical dependency. The aforementioned drugs function as calming preparations as they increase the neurotransmitter GABA. They are generally pretty effective but should be taken only under a doctor’s supervision. There are also people who turn to homeopathic preparations as they seem safer in terms of side effects and general effect on the organism.
Next therapy for anxiety insomnia is talk therapy. It is safer as it does not involve any preparations but is less preferable with others as it takes time to produce any effect. It may take up to 20 sessions to alleviate the condition and sort the reasons for anxiety up as well as deal with it. Cognitive therapy is the most popular treatment among talk therapies that deal with anxiety insomnia problems.
Anxiety insomnia can also be relieved with the help of a meditation. Some simple lifestyle changes can also be very beneficial. Too much caffeine is fraught with bad sleep, hence, it is recommended to reduce the intake of caffeine for those who cannot sleep well. Proper sleeping schedule and routines can help a lot. Drinking calming teas, such as chamomile and catnip, can also be useful.
Once again, the first reason for anxiety insomnia problems is troublesome thoughts and stress. Therefore, best thing to do to get rid of the condition is to reduce stress levels and get rid of all the things that evoke anxiety.
