Sleep is the best solution to lower anxiety – Berkeley study finds

A study conducted by Berkeley has conluded that sleep is the best possible way to counter and lower anxiety.

When you are stressed about your work, meeting, debts, problems and other stuff and suffering from anxiety, you don’t need to worry anymore.

The study conducted by Berkeley has found sleep to be the best solution and it works for different kinds of people.

“We have identified a new function of a deep sleep, one that decreases anxiety overnight by reorganizing connections in the brain,” said Matthew Walker,  study senior author and neuroscience professor

The study also said people with anxiety can lower it by practicing and making deep sleep a way of life.

“Deep sleep seems to be a natural (anxiety inhibitor), so long as we get it each and every night.”- he added.

“The findings suggest that the decimation of sleep throughout most industrialized nations and the marked escalation in anxiety disorders in these same countries is perhaps not coincidental, but causally related,” — he added.

The study also found that insufficient sleep contributes to anxiety.

“Our study strongly suggests that insufficient sleep amplifies levels of anxiety and, conversely, that deep sleep helps reduce such stress,” said lead author Eti Ben Simon
