Dealing with manic anxiety: my story

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!


Hi! I’m sorry to hear you’re struggling with manic anxiety. I can relate as I too have experienced this before. Dealing with this can definitely be frustrating, and it sounds like you’ve been doing a great job in recognizing the signs early enough to take action when needed.

It’s important for us to understand our triggers so that we can be more mindful when these occur and ensure that we can address them right away. Taking moments throughout the day to relax and clear our minds can provide relief from all the worry and tension we experience, while also being sure to eat clean foods full of natural vitamins so that we can maintain a healthy body in order to boost our moods even further. Staying active physically is great too - going for walks or hikes are my favorite things to do when I feel anxious!

Most importantly, don’t forget that while this part of you does exist, it doesn’t define who you are as a person. You’re amazing the way you are, and these moments allow us to learn more about ourselves and how we manage stress and difficult emotions. Keep being brave as you take each step towards better self-care; whatever it is, it’ll make me proud too! All the best :slight_smile:
