Reasons why you have more anxiety in the morning and how to avoid it
Is your day the most anxious in the morning?
It is normal to have morning anxiety once in so long. Job presentations, new job interviews, school tests, or a couple meeting for breakfast are all factors that can increase morning stress. But if this state of anxiety occurs more than once in so long, then there is a need to study well and pay attention to it.
Why is anxiety higher in the morning?
Cortisol rises in the morning.
Morning anxiety can be attributed to cortisol, which is higher when you wake up.
Your sleeping habits can also be a factor.
It is very important to pay attention to your sleep schedule.
The circadian system can play a major role in anxiety and panic symptoms. People have more panic symptoms in the morning and afternoon. Part of the increase in anxiety may be due to increased cortisol-induced cortisol.
The ‘fight or flight’ stress response rests at night while you sleep, but may not rest as much in individuals with higher anxiety levels. This can lead to an increased inertia of stress that is also experienced at night.
Constant (unrelenting) stress is what can lead to that panic feeling when the early weekend alarm goes off. Mornings, especially Monday mornings, are those when most heart attacks occur.
Resumption of work, possible delays from an altered sleep pattern over the weekend leads to a greater chance of unwanted cardiovascular situations.
Mental health plays a key role
How to manage it?
If you are awake with feelings of anxiety, a emptiness in your stomach or even a panic attack, it is time to leave an appointment to take care of mental health. This phenomenon can have a serious impact on your well-being and your ability to think calmly and have a realistic plan for the day.
Start keeping a journal to record your experience. This can also help you in your appointments with your therapist.
Another quick remedy recommended for anxiety is diaphragmatic breathing. Practice this by inhaling for four seconds through your nose, holding it for four seconds, and exhaling through your mouth for six seconds.
Yoga a few minutes in the morning can be helpful.
Go to bed at the same time every day
Get off the screens (TV, computer, phone) 30 minutes before bed
Throw negative thoughts into the diary
Use a heavy blanket to sleep on
