Anxiety attack triggers

  • Social media- comparing self to others, fear of missing out.
  • Watching Hoarders on youtube.
  • Watching too much TV/watching TV during the day- easy to fall into and leaves me unmotivated and gloomy for the rest of the day.
  • Someone waking me up/keeping me awake with loud noises- frustration and feel disrespected.
  • A very long “To Do” list that has no fun activities- Ill probably only do 2 or 3 things and watch TV as a reward which turns into a vicious cycle.
  • Eating more than a small snack outside of meal times.
  • Eating chips or lollies- leaves me feeling very sick, gives me a headache and fatigue.
  • Having nothing to wake up for in the morning makes me prone to sleeping in and getting 12 hours sleep which gives me a headache, makes me slow and lethargic and reduces ability to sleep that night which results in a tired next day.
  • Exercise with a headache.
  • An inactive day.
  • People asking me to do things for them that are of significance (my fault, not theirs, as I put too much pressure on myself and have a hard time saying no).
  • Financial problems.
  • Anything.
