Generalized anxiety and the frequency of bad dreams are significantly related in the aged population. Individuals diagnosed with anxiety are more likely to have bad dreams. Bad dreams are associated with depression, anxiety, overall worrying and poor quality of life. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) was helpful in addressing anxiety and reducing the frequency of bad dreams. Older adults with anxiety were more susceptible to bad dreams and bad dreams were seen more often in the aged population. When one gets older there is increased risk for bad dreams when anxiety and worrying behavior is already present and likely the result of feeling more vulnerable towards life in general. CBT for anxiety provided a relief for worrying thoughts and was a positive intervention. (Nadorff, M., Porter, B. Rhoades, H., & Greisinger, A., Bad dream frequency in older adults with generalized anxiety disorder: Prevalence, correlates and effect of cognitive behavioral treatment for anxiety, 2014, Behavioral Sleep Medicine, 12:28-40).
