This can cause you to feel “spacey” and lightheaded, almost as though you might faint.

What makes it harder to fall asleep at night with anxiety?

Stimulants can worsen anxiety symptoms. In addition, because stimulants increase body activity, taking them before bed can make it more difficult to fall asleep. The National Sleep Foundation warns that alcohol, cigarettes, and caffeine can all have a negative effect on sleep, so be sure to avoid these before you hit the hay.
