How stress and worry influence your sleep

Scientists have found a direct link between anxiety and rhythm of sleep. When a person has anxious thoughts, his/her heart rate goes up and in turn the mind starts to ‘race’. This causes the brain to become alert and stimulated and start producing beta waves. This happens to someone who worries about something when trying to get to sleep - instead of being calm and subdued, the brain is too aroused to sleep. And to make matters worse, once the brain is stimulated in this way, other worries are activated, making sleep even harder to achieve.
