what is the connection between lack of sleep and anxiety?

Have you ever been laying in bed first thing in the morning after a really restless sleep and found yourself to be more anxious than normal?

Poor quality of sleep seems to put the brain on guard and spikes the stress hormone called cortisol. This triggers that instant anxiety before the day has even begun due to the fight or flight nature of this hormone when elevated
