Too Stressed To Sleep? 11 Ways To Put Anxious Thoughts to Bed


Why Can’t I Sleep When I’m Stressed?

You can’t sleep when you’re stressed because your body is experiencing “fight or flight” or the physical symptoms of stress. With your muscles tensing and your heart rate rising, falling asleep is virtually impossible.

Committing to routine, exercise, and mindfulness may not solve the issues in life that cause you stress, but they can help you get to a place where sound sleep is easier. And when paired with a comfortable mattress, you may find yourself sleeping easily each night, and being happier and healthier because of it.
