Welcome to the forum. What is it about dreaming while you’re sleeping that makes you anxious?

The thing that makes me anxious is why am i dreaming a lot? It feels like i am not getting deep sleep.April 30, 2021 at 3:30 pm #40973
Sleep can seem unrestful if you try to sleep with a weak sleep drive, aka not sleepy, or you have lots of sleep related anxiety or both. Try not to think too much about sleep. Your body will sleep when it wants to, and try not get caught up in trying to control it. If you have anxiety about not sleeping well, then this is almost impossible because it is like having a fear of hunger, but then you instinctly go and eat when your hunger drive gets so very strong it overrides everything else and you just had to eat. Same thing with sleep. Let your body tells you when it wants to eat, sleep or be active. Sleep only when sleepy. Eat only when hungry. Don’t worry, be happy, everything’s fine and there’s nothing broken with you.May 1, 2021 at 2:06 pm #40982

Like you I’m experiencing the same thing it feels as if I’m getting no deep sleep whatsoever and my mind is active all day and night its not like I’m worried about whats happening but I have an awareness that it is though.
I can’t really say I try to do much about it other than at night I stay up till 4:00 am or later simply because I’m not sleepy enough that is not a sleep effort in my opinion because I’m not planning on staying up till that time,so really I’m doing nothing about this problem yet it still persists.
