Lately, I have been struggling with manic anxiety. It’s a challenging experience to deal with and can be very exhausting.
I’ve learned that it is important to recognize the signs early so that I can take steps to reduce it. For me, I find that taking a few moments out of my day to relax and clear my mind helps alleviate some of the worry and stress I am feeling. Listening to calming music and/or guided mediation tracks also help me manage feelings of tension.
Another important aspect of managing manic anxiety is being honest about what triggers the feelings, such as certain situations or events, and how they make me feel when those triggers occur for me is essential. Taking note of these triggers allows me to better focus on what is triggering my feelings so that I can then find ways like writing in a journal or talking out loud to work through them in healthy ways with tools like breathing exercises or mindfulness activities that keep me grounded.
It’s crucial for me to stay active through physical activity, like going for hikes or doing yoga as often as possible while also getting plenty of restful sleep each night as it aids in improving my overall well-being from reducing stress levels and helping improve moods overall. A good diet makes a world of difference too! Eating clean whole foods full of natural vitamins not only strengthens our body, but may even help boost moods too!
Learning more about dealing with manic anxiety has been helpful in understanding why I feel this way at times but remembering above all else that this is just part of who I am, not all of who I am helps motivate me every day moving forward!
