Abstract ABSTRACT- The study defines anxiety, as per the American Psychological Association, as an emotional state characterised by tension, worrisome thoughts, and physical symptoms such as increased blood pressure. The primary objectives were to assess gender-based differences in anxiety and sleep quality among young adults and to explore the connection between anxiety and sleep patterns in college students.A cross-sectional questionnaire-based survey was administered to 100 participants. Validated questionnaires, including the Beck Anxiety Inventory and a Pittsburg sleep quality scale, were employed to collect data related to anxiety and sleep quality. The findings revealed that 34% of participants reported low anxiety levels, 45% reported moderate anxiety, and 21% reported high anxiety levels. Additionally, 45% of participants had low sleep quality, 28% had moderate sleep quality, and 27% had high sleep quality.The analysis indicated a mean anxiety score of 16.80 for males and 17.20 for females, with a non-significant p-value (.728), suggesting that gender does not significantly influence anxiety levels. However, a positive correlation (.764**) was observed between anxiety and sleep patterns, revealing that as anxiety levels increased, sleep quality decreased. The study concluded that higher anxiety levels are associated with disrupted sleep patterns, including more frequent awakenings, longer sleep latency, and reduced sleep efficiency.In summary, this research sheds light on the link between anxiety and sleep quality among college students, highlighting the negative impact of anxiety on sleep patterns. These findings emphasise the need for interventions and support for students experiencing anxiety-related sleep disturbances.
