This is just a quick discussion of any patterns that may exist in my experience of anxiety.
For some strange reason, my anxiety is at its worst when I first wake up and before I have had several cups of coffee – half caffeine and half decaf. It is not a great way to greet the day with full-on anxiety yet that is more often my pattern.
Since developing a walking routine with our new puppy, this morning anxiety has become more of a todo list upon waking which is a welcome change.
It also helps to read the 23rd Psalm outloud upon waking but I do not always do this and haven’t in a while. Perhaps I need to restart this practice.
Usually after my morning coffee my anxiety is still there but tolerable with PRNs.
If you experience anxiety is it ever at the beginning of your day? What are the patterns you see in your anxiety if any?
