I’m a morning person and I think I always have been.
If you’re like me, mornings are full of energy and focus.
I get sh!t done!
But what if you wake up feeling anxious before you’ve even
started your day?
Whether you wake up with a jolt of anxiety in your body,
or your brain starts thinking of everything that could go wrong,
morning anxiety can ruin your whole day if you don’t know how to handle it.
If this sounds a little too familiar,
it makes sense that you’re exhausted,
wanting to hide under the covers, and
that you can’t think about anything other than how you feel.
Work and your ‘to-do’ list feel impossible,
and then there is the guilt you feel when you think you
shouldn’t be anxious when nothing has happened.
You might even feel like you’re one of only a handful of people who
can actually take a perfectly good morning and ruin it by feeling anxious.
Hey! Take it easy on yourself!
Morning anxiety is actually really common, and it doesn’t have to be a problem
when you know what it is and how to handle it.
Waking up anxious is often caused by a few very normal things.
Not sleeping enough or not sleeping well.
What you eat or drink in the morning.
Simple habits like
Creating a bedtime and morning routine to follow
Avoiding caffeine or sugary breakfasts
Moving your body
Listing 3-5 things you’re grateful for and forcing your brain to look for what is already going well, can help you move through anxious mornings.
But what if it’s not enough?

you have to learn to trust yourself,

you take control of your mornings and your entire day.
