If you’re a worrier, going to bed earlier could help

Those who feel stressed and anxious all the time might want to try one simple remedy before others: Go to bed earlier. It’s not just a matter of getting a good night’s sleep, however.

Researchers at Binghamton University say that when you go to sleep matters when it comes to fending off “repetitive negative thinking,” according to a post at Eureka Alert.

“Making sure that sleep is obtained during the right time of day may be an inexpensive and easily disseminable intervention for individuals who are bothered by intrusive thoughts,” says one of the researchers for the study published in Cognitive Therapy and Research.
