I hate it when Anxiety comes OUT OF NOWHERE! It's 4:30am and I have no reason to be anxious, yet here I am on the verge of an anxiety attack. What's worse is idk what's causing it so idk how to control it! Any ideas?

    I have the same issue, and what helps me is just working out in nature! Yes it may be 4:00 am but its very calming :)

    That happened to me when I was trying to fall asleep last night. I had had a bit of a stressful day, and my guard had been up all day. I think sometimes when I go to relax, I get anxious for no reason. It's like my body and mind have to been on high alert at all times, so when I go to relax, I'm not it that state and then that makes me anxious Something that I found has helped is putting on a show I've watched before and doodling or coloring at the same time. It still gives me something to do, but I can also try to relax at the same time

    Anxiety doesn't always come from a source. Try and distract yourself. Get up and walk around your house, count how many green colored items you have in your room, etc.

    I believe it's wifi. IF I turn it off at nite in the house it helps. I have to limit my use of the internet in the house. If I stop using it for 2 or 3 days I feel better. Look into grounding for your body. Getting in touch with nature. The grass,water,trees always helps because it pulls the radiation out of my body.

    I know there are some apps that can help. I would recommend rootd, spelled like that. It has breathing, panic, and sleeping and visuals on there and I've found that they help a lot

    I have that same problem and continue to struggle to find a way to fix it- the solution I've ended up at is finding a distraction. I put on music and doodle, listen to video analysis essays, turn on a podcast, etc. Only happy stuff tho, listening to something talking about dark subjects or doodling a dark subject matter doesn't do much to help in my experience πŸ˜‚
