  1. It is good that you immediately gave certainty to your question: we are talking about primary anxiety and, as a result, insomnia. And then it happens the other way around: initially insomnia begins, and it already causes anxiety.

    Before we move on to “practice”, just in case, give yourself a small test. If all the points below are consistent with you, then your insomnia is actually” derived ” from anxiety.

    * Insomnia is represented by problems with falling asleep. Night and early morning awakenings do not bother.

    * The alarm status is available during the day, not just in the evening and at night.

    * After both” bad “and” good ” nights, the state of anxiety during the day remains approximately at the same level. There is no peace after “good” nights.

    • During problems with falling asleep, thoughts are not devoted to insomnia, but rather to life problems, fear for the future.

    * A person does not have such a thing that he really wants to sleep in the evening, but when he goes to bed, this desire stops. As a rule, sleepiness simply does not occur until late at night.

    If all this is about you, then you need to deal with an anxiety disorder. Once you succeed in this, your sleep will return to normal.

    Recommendations for dealing with anxiety:

    * Try to highlight the life problems that are causing you the main concern.

    * Think about how to address these issues or reduce their significance.

    * Be sure to observe the work and rest regime, at least 1 day a week to devote to your family and your own affairs, and not to work.

    * Practice any relaxation techniques: auto-training, audio relaxation, breathing exercises, or something else.

    • Do 40-60 minutes of aerobic exercise every day or at least 5 times a week: running, Nordic walking, swimming.

    If you can't manage your anxiety on your own, contact a therapist: they will help you with psychotherapy practices or medications.

    Sometimes there are situations that a person gets rid of anxiety, but insomnia remains. Or he understands that the degree of his anxiety depends on the quality of sleep – which means that the root cause of these conditions is still insomnia. In this situation, a somnologist will help you.

    Choose the right specialists or act on your own – the main thing is not to let the problem go by itself!

  2. Here you need to understand where the anxiety comes from, maybe you are a person who is prone to anxiety, maybe insomnia is just because of anxiety, and not vice versa, there are many factors, first you can see a doctor, a neurologist, if everything is OK, you can look at a psychotherapist. You can certainly extinguish pills, but they will not help for a long time ,it is better to find out the cause of anxiety and insomnia and how they are related ( they may not be related at all).

  3. Anxiety or anxiety can be situational, caused by specific circumstances. Also, the anxiety may be “autochthonous”, i.e. it may not have a connection with a psychologically understandable situation. In the first case, anxiety often occurs as a reaction to the unknown, which is perceived as potentially threatening, inevitably unpleasant, as well as a painful feeling of inability to anticipate the course of events and loss of control. Very often, people who are characterized by suspiciousness react this way. Various relaxation exercises can help to cope with such anxiety.

    In the second case, when there were no significant troubles, bad events, and you notice for yourself (or your relative, acquaintance) that you began to experience fear, severe anxiety, sleep deteriorated, and, possibly, appetite, and all this did not pass at least in 2 weeks, then I would recommend to consult a doctor and not self-medicate.

  4. If you have it every night, then I think it is necessary to see a doctor so that he prescribes medicines for you(lotusonik is an excellent medicine).Also, you can stay up for two days,and on the third day go to bed at nine o'clock,fall asleep instantly,get enough sleep and return to your old,normal sleep mode(the main thing here is not to close your eyes for exactly two days).

  5. If you get up at 5: 40 and 6: 15 on the train, which is 2 hours to the city, and then about an hour by metro and buses around the city to the office. And if then work well from 9: 15 to 19: 15. And then an hour to the train, and two hours to the house, then upon arrival at 22:15 home, your problem will be solved, if not on the first day, then in a week.

    You're just bored. Keep yourself busy.

  6. Imagine a man who is very tired and has to look good the next day, and his only suit is torn. He picks up a needle and thread through his fatigue and even sews up his suit, and everything seems to be fine. He no longer has the strength to do anything, so he passes out to sleep.

    The next morning, he wakes up very tense and anxious… Something's wrong! From the outside, given the history, you can guess that he was tired and forgot to put the needle in the box. But he had forgotten that. Only a part of his mind remembers that a needle in the bed can prick, and his body involuntarily clenches in anticipation of the prick. But in the mind there is “it seems that I managed everything yesterday, prepared…”.

    This story is about the forgotten fear behind anxiety. Anxiety is a fear that creeps up from an unknown direction, from everywhere and nowhere at the same time, like a needle left in the bed.

    You can calm yourself down in various ways, but a part of your mind still remembers the needle and aches until the essence of the fear is remembered and the insight “but what I was worried about, I forgot to remove the needle”does not arise. After that, it becomes more clear what to do with the danger: change the underwear, use a magnet on the floor, and so on. After that, the alarm subsides.
