A bike would definitely help. I got one too when I had heightened anxiety - the cool breeze really winds me down. What about jogging? Does that cause panic attacks?

Yoga can possibly help you regulate your breathing and coming in touch with the sensations in your body. This could help you further ease those symptoms and then begin brief exercise gradually.

I always wake up with nausea and am kind of shaky. It has been particularly bad the past couple of mornings...I even woke up to an actual anxiety attack yesterday morning.

TWIN.. And all ----As I understand it, cortisol is the highest in the morning.  I believe that is at least one of the major contributing factors.  So, the exercise thing fits into place o counter that.
However, if you have "burned out" your system.. Then the 3mins + of something more easy going- walk etc. Depending on level of burnout?
Just some ideas..

Spencer----Also, when the heaviest part of the anxiety started for me, my body acted like it was hypoglycemic.  Meaning, I couldn't really get through the night without something like juice or milk (milk has protein to better balance dugar) in the middle of the night and first thing in the morning.  The juice can give you the boost.. But it ovpbviously can then cause the drop in sugar.  Some preteen, would help..even with some fibre or whatever to help balance the sugar long term.  I am better than that now, so I don't have symptoms of hypoglycemia anymore...

No caffeine seems to be a huge factor!  ALSO vitamin C !! I chew vitamin C 500. Mg tablets... That can do wonders for your nerves immediately!  Also, if you DID have some caffeine, pop a vitamin C 500 mg chewable immediately and you will notice a difference pretty much right away!!

Hope this helps!!  :yes:

I have a similar problem.  Best solutions I have found:  Exercise-- stationary bike, walking, running, anything for about 30 min at 60-70% max heart rate very good.  Shower and a routine.  Then a breakfast but no caffeine.  Use an herbal tea like cammomile.

I second this. I used to be really afraid of getting my heart rate up, but everything I read said it helped with anxiety, so I started slowly with a Tai Chi video. Something like that or Yoga might help you ease your way into brisk walking. I also have Chamomile tea in the morning and then again in the evening, and it seems to help.

Me again..
Just go clarify- I am typing on an I pad and some letters get in, or are incorrect etc... LOL!!!  :angel-smiley-006:

Preteen- was supposed to be PROTEIN!!  Lol  :laugh3:

Further on the caffeine - caffeine removes vitamin C from your body ( as well as nicotine, if you smoke... I DON'T, so I don't have o worry about that!)  :winking0008:
However, if you drink caffeine, you will notice an immediate positive effect on your nerves if you pop a chewable 500 mg vitamin C.  I notice the difference right away.  Sometimes, I find my nerves/anxiety symptoms higher, then I realize I had caffeine or too much etc and chew 1-2. Tablets and I am better.
When my anxiety was worse, at the beginning.. I couldn't do ANY caffeine really!!
again.. Hope this helps!!  :action-smiley-065:
