Cut the Stimulants
Stimulants and anxiety love each other. It’s a match made in hell.
If you’re complaining about anxiety and holding a giant coffee, there’s a disconnect there. Caffeine is an amplifier of anxiety, not to mention the narcotics some take to deal with anxiety that only make it worse.
The process of getting your caffeine (and sugar) can be addictive as well. It took me years to break with my routines. But I had to be honest with myself: caffeine is really bad for people with anxiety and it’s looking like sugar may much worse than we thought.
This is part of a 30-day challenge to blog about anxiety. See all the posts.
