Stat Week- Week 1 Recap


You completed Week 1 of a XanFree New Year where we have been focusing on bringing awareness to a number of statistics relating to anxiety, stress, and sleep. In the video above you can find a recap of everything that has been covered this week and below you will find a quick guide to everything covered.






Anxiety is tracking to be possibly one of the most common conditions in America, and even in the world. In the U.S. alone it affects 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older, or 18.1% of the population every year.

Anxiety has many different forms, it may come in feelings of nervousness, restlessness, or tension, even increased heart rate, sweating, and trembling.

As a matter of fact according to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services states that the five major types of anxiety disorders are:

  • GAD, or Generalized Anxiety Disorder
  • OCD, or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Panic Disorder
  • PTSD, or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Social Anxiety Disorder

Anxiety can also sneak up on anyone throughout the day as well as be triggered by nearly anything, it is dependent on the person and situation. Anxiety disorders are highly treatable, yet only 36.9% of those suffering receive treatment.

You are not alone in your fight against anxiety, make this year the year you conquer your body.




Stress can be felt by almost everyone. In fact, if you had to put 100 people in a room nearly 55% of those people would claim to deal with stress each day.

And if you were to put this number on a worldwide scale, this percent equates to well over 170 million people. In fact, The American Institute of Stress has found that:

  • About 33% of people report feeling extreme stress
  • 77% of people experience stress that affects their physical health
  • 73% of people have stress that impacts their mental health
  • 48% of people have trouble sleeping because of stress

There are countless symptoms of stress, varying from aches & pains, exhaustion, headaches, and, high blood pressure just to name a few.

National Institutes of Mental Health have done studies that found that there are five major types of stress disorders, including:

  • PTSD, or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Acute Stress Disorder
  • RAD or Reactive Attachment Disorder
  • Disinhibited Social Engagement Disorder
  • Adjustment Disorder

Depending on the person, stress can also be triggered by nearly anything like Anxiety.

Fight back and learn how to relieve your body this year.




Do you know that each night you should get 7-9 hours of sleep? About 35% of American adults have reported averaging less than 7 hours of sleep per day.

Additionally, studies have shown that:

  • About half of Americans feel sleepy during the day on average between 3-7 days each week
  • 35.2% of all American adults report sleeping less than 7 hours per night on average
  • 42.6% of single parents in the US sleep on average less than 7 hours per night

There is an issue with a larger portion of American adults getting a full night of sleep. This may later lead to poor performance in the day or even cause shorter attention spans, poor memory, and mood changes.

Getting more adults in bed for longer is going to make everyone feel better in some way.



As we continue throughout the month keep in mind these stats as we will be providing ways that can help a person through these difficult challenges. Everyone should come together to help bring awareness to these problems that are being faced by so many people.
