Whatever the anxiety is doesn't matter, as long as I have a good sleep. A good sleep helps my head be clear, then I can concentrate to do things and not be easy to be distracted by unrelated things. In additions, my health is also good if I slept well last night before: proper heart beating, stamina muscles and deep breath. In contrast, if I sleep badly last night, today my behavior will not be together and tie to many health issues. I will dread learning English when my head is spinning around so hard that I unlikely to remember anything. Moreover, lacking sleep, I feel easily to be frustrated to other people and be scared when having a interpersonal connection with them. So, setting a consistent bedtime to have a good sleep is what makes me anxious more than anything else.

Whenever I am in such a fateful new position that one choice can change my way of life, or my destiny ,at that moment I prefer to have an instant consultation it helps me to be released of anxiety. when someone tells me lies and I know that
at that moment I feel nervous and disappointed .
