I searched for a thread on this topic and didn't find one specifically, but was wondering if anyone else faces these and what sorts of approaches you take to deal with them.
I've always had a background level of anxiety in my life, but have always managed to control it and do whatever is required of me at the time for the most part. I've always made progress despite the anxiety. My life right now is quite good externally, but for some reason every single night I wake up with a severe anxiety attack. It is so bad that I had started taking sleeping medication to be sure I don't wake up at night. When I do, I just take more. I have my own theories about what is going on, and don't need to go into the psychological aspects of it, but am curious about nutrition and other external ways of managing the problem. I am going to start doing some meditation and try to cut back on my work load as well.
