Caffeine is bad for anxiety

Jun 09, 2014 - 0 comments




I started my day with exercises in the morning and had my coffee because didn't got much sleep last night, but as a person who is recovering from anxiety I shouldn't touch caffeine.
Still I went out with family for lunch I guess I managed well even though I had caffeine, usually if I'm going to have a coffee I would ask for decaf so I can enjoy the smell and the taste of a freshly brewed coffee.

After Lunch I was suppose to have a drink with a friend but I guess she forgot about it so it has been cancel by silent and emotionally I'm not that well because I started to think negative thoughts, but I quickly changed my mood by entertaining myself with good music.
I'm doing pretty well today had no panics or feeling any symptoms but I need to work more harder on my mood swings.

" The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they always see the past better than it was and the present worse than it is."

Keep in mind that quote ;-)

Ps: Here's a small info about caffeine and anxiety:

"How caffeine works
Caffeine is a stimulant that acts on the central nervous system. It counteracts the effects of adenosine, a brain chemical that dampens down neural activity, and so helps us feel more awake.
Caffeine and anxiety are linked, however, because the boost we get from caffeine is caused by an increase in our heart and breathing rate. These are the same reactions as the “fight or flight” response that kicks in when we sense danger, or a challenge we can’t cope with."
