If you’re anxious about what you have on your plate tomorrow, get a little more sleep tonight. According to the experts at UC Berkeley, increasing your sleep before a stressful event – by turning in a little earlier, or sleeping a little later – can reduce anxiety. It works by decreasing activity in the area of the brain that heightens stress – the amygdala. So if you have a job interview tomorrow – an exam – or an important sales call – get a little more sleep, and you’ll feel calmer and more in control tomorrow.
