How to calm morning anxiety 

Many of us deal with anxiety, but what about morning anxiety? There are few things worse than simply waking up and feeling anxious from the get-go. But this is exactly what happens with morning anxiety –  just the start of your day is enough to make your anxiety shoot through the roof.  Luckily, you can calm morning anxiety and get your day off to a better start. Here’s how.

Why do people have morning anxiety?

There are a few reasons why some people wake up feeling frazzled and uneasy. One reason is not enough sleep. Sleep is the time when your body restores and replenishes itself, and when you’re sleep-deprived, your mental health suffers. 

Another tigger for morning anxiety is immediately thinking about everything you have to do that day. Maybe it’s all that unfinished business from yesterday. Maybe you dread going into work every day. Whatever the case may be, if your day looks bleak, it can cause morning anxiety.

How to calm morning anxiety

Create a sleep opportunity 

Making sure you give yourself seven to nine hours of sleep each night helps you get enough sleep. This alone may help reduce morning anxiety.

Get up when the alarm goes off

When the alarm first goes off, it might feel like the biggest mistake to wake up. But resist the temptation to hit snooze and procrastinate in bed. Once you sit up and plant your feet on the floor, the worst is behind you. 

Make a morning routine you look forward to 

What would make you excited to get out of bed? Set the alarm so you have enough time to do these things for yourself. This can include your having favorite breakfast, reading a chapter from your favorite book, journaling, yoga or meditating. 

Say positive affirmations

You might not be able to change your circumstances, but you can definitely change your mindset and outlook. And positive affirmations can help, especially when you want to calm morning anxiety.

You can say things like:

  • I am safe
  • I love and approve of myself 
  • I trust the process of life 
  • I have all the time I need
  • Everything is falling into place 

The discomfort associated with your period may actually be caused by the product you’re using, not your body.

Period products that plug the vaginal canal, like tampons and menstrual cups can worsen discomfort during your period because your body is stretching to fit them. This distention in the vagina can worsen cramping and bloating.

But there’s a new period product promising to give you the most comfortable period of your life, the menstrual disc, FLEX™. In fact, 70% of women say their cramps were significantly less noticeable when using FLEX vs. other period products.

Plus FLEX is the only internally worn product not linked to TSS.

  • Body-safe: made out of medical grade materials that don’t promote the growth of bacteria, helping to prevent yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis
  • Wearable up to 12 hours: FLEX holds up to 5 tampons worth of fluid and only needs to be changed twice per day
  •  Hypoallergenic: made without harmful materials like bisphenol A (BPA),phthalates,or latex.
  • Comfortable: they promise the most comfortable period of your life. In fact, 78% of women forget they are on their period with FLEX.
