Hi, I'm new to this site, I'm a 34 year old male and sometimes get crippling anxiety in the mornings, anyone else in this boat or have any tips on how to beat it?

Thank you


Hi and :welcome: to the forum.

Is there anything that you could be doing the day/night before that could be causing early morning anxiety?

I know that persons who take drugs or drink alcohol can get morning anxiety? Or is there anything that is particulary on your mind at that point in the day?

Hello mate :welcome:
Actually i do got some advice for you.
I was major bad with anxiety.
I found that if i get up in a morning and do press ups or if i have an anxiety attack trigger for some reason then do push ups or some kind of work out that it helps loads.
I've actually stopped having them.
When you work out your body releases endorphins into the blood stream which make you feel good so my body must of started to associate the two feelings and eventually started to compensate for my anxiety without me even knowing cos as i said i not had one lately.
Worked for me anyways ;)

Hi 73yoced :)

I know just what you mean! My anxiety is often worse in the mornings, or in the middle of the night if I can't sleep. I've discovered exactly the same as Onlymebud that it helps a lot if you do physical exercise. Like Onlymebud says, when we are physically active, mood-enhancing chemicals called endorphins are released into our bloodstream. But when we are lying in bed all night or doing a sedentary job all day without taking frequent breaks for a stretch and a walk round, the level of endorphins in our blood decreases, leaving us feeling lethargic and despondent. If you wake up in the morning and find yourself worrying about something, the best thing you can do is get up immediately and run up & down stairs a few times! Things probably won't seem so bad after that.
