Anxiety and sleep problems go hand-in-hand so sleep must often be addressed in order to manage anxiety.
In addition to many effective things you can to do improve sleep, here are some of my favorite products that can help you sleep better.

Fitbit Alta HR
Not all Fitbits are created equal when it comes to usefulness for improving sleep via detailed sleep tracking data. Fitbit Alta HR gives you better data than other Fitbits about your sleep stages and sleep patterns.
This data will help guide your troubleshooting process. It helped me make several improvements in sleep that make a real difference in my life.
I love, love, love my Fitbit Alta HR.
It’s the biggest craze of 2019. And for good reason. It’s great for sleep and many other things (especially anxiety). CBD oil and capsules are great for insomnia and can help with getting to sleep faster and staying asleep longer.
My favorite CBD product specifically for sleep is the CbdMD brand and the name of the product is “CBD PM Oil” which combines CBD with melatonin, as well as Valerian root, Passionflower extract, Cascade Hops, Chamomile flower and Lemon Balm.
Learn a lot more in my recent CBD article and find out why I’m fan.
Sleep Stories are meant to take you back to a simpler mental state and let your brain relax and transition from a busy day into time for deep rest, just like bedtime stories did when you were young.
Stories are read in a very soothing tone and carefully designed to ease and lull the mind. The free version of the app has a few stories about things like lavender fields or magical waterfalls, and the full version has more stories.
Homeopathy is a natural system of supplements that has been around for at least 100 years. Homeopathic remedies are inexpensive, small pellets dissolved under the tongue.
Coffea Cruda is a homeopathic derived from the coffee bean. It is very useful for the person who has mind racing that gets in the way of sleep. I leave mine right on my nightstand.
This product and recommendations for use can be found at most health food stores.
At bedtime I use this soothing balm made of organic Bergamot, Lavender and other calming essential oils. It works topically and I also put it on my lips, nostrils and under my nose for aromatherapy.
Guided Mindful Belly Breathing Meditation
It seems a little weird to list my own product as a favorite, but this Mindful Belly Breathing Meditation. It calms the nervous system so well that many people swear by the guided audio meditation for use before bedtime to fall asleep. I used to sell this CD but using those links you can get FREE downloads.
