According to recent studies, people suffering from anxiety and depression loose a lot of sleep as a result of something called "rebound sleep" which bring to the surface all the things that have been suppressed during the day.

 

Essentially where people choose to "run away" from their thoughts that might otherwise plague them come out at night when your cognition no longer has the option to ignore what the brain needs to clear out. 

 

Among the tests involving z-drugs and all the other nasty things, studies were carried out whereby sufferers wrote down what was causing them problems during the day before they went to sleep, following which a significant reduction found that they had less problems with their sleep and/or dreams.
