Stress, Anxiety, Insomnia

One thing that is almost universal with those who suffer from anxiety and/or insomnia is that there is a stress component causing or making them worse. Stress and anxiety can lead to insomnia, and then the lack of sleep makes the stress and anxiety worse.

Always start by managing your stress. Utilize natural medicine for the symptoms of anxiety and use natural sleep aids while you actively work to manage your stress. Once your stress is properly managed, the sleep issues or anxiety issues will be lessened or fixed completely.
