Anxiety and sleep have a complicated relationship. The part of the brain most sensitive to a lack of sleep is the amygdala (the ‘anxiety’ part of the brain) – but – juuuuust when brains and bodies are meant to be sliding into peaceful zzz’s, anxiety shows up with party lights. Ugh. Brains won’t feel calm without enough sleep, but anxiety gets in the way of ‘enough sleep’ – but we can fix that. Here are three ways to take the struggle out of sleep, and help kiddos and teens get plenty of peaceful pillow time – so you can too. Aaaahhh sleep. We love you, like, super love you.
