Holiday anxiety is a real thing; whether you sweat year round or only around big events, Dr. Kevin Chapman is here to help. Longtime friend of Wicked Sheets and practicing clinical psychologist, Dr. Chapman focuses on teaching his patients about Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in instances of stress, anxiety, and panic disorder.
In this live interview, Wicked Sheets CEO, Alli Truttmann, and Dr. Chapman sit down to talk about how to cope with rising anxiety around the Holidays. He pinpoints three specific trouble areas where most of his patients experience Holiday anxiety during preparation, travel, and gift buying and offers expert advice on how to break the cycle.

Don’t have time to watch more videos and want some quick tips now? Here are CEO Alli’s favorite three tips to stay calm and sleep cooler if you’re experiencing nighttime anxiety and night sweats:
- Practice 4-7-8 breathing. Increasing oxygen to the brain helps us refocus and regain control of our thoughts.
- Keep cool water right next to your bed, on your nightstand. A cooling sip will re-hydrate your lips and send a cool sensation down your chest as it travels through your esophagus and into your stomach.
- Make sure your thermostat is set to 64 degrees. The cooler your sleep environment, the sounder you’ll sleep.
