Trouble sleeping

Well I tried to get some sleep last night and I stayed awake all night it's now 12 o clock in the morning and I still can't sleep I feel like when I put my head down my heart beat is very slow when I feel my pulse but really fast in my head also I feel like my chest is pushing through my skin and it's causing me to think I am dying I struggle to breath and I am getting really scared

  • Try drinking a night time tea before bed and really creating your room for bedtime. Warm heavy blanket with a fan to make white noize. I sometimes play ambient music on quiet. Close my eyes and focus on breathing and not thinking. I think the thing that most helped me with sleep troubles is that I told myself that I can have all the symptoms of anxiety, but sleep is something its not going to steal from me. And if i dont sleep tonight or tomorrow, I will sleep eventually. It took the fear out of it eventually.

    I havent had problems for a while, I just notice now when my anxiety is high I wake up at 5 am :/
