Today I got anxiety unexpectedly while watching a show that wasn't particularly anxiety inducing. All of a sudden, my chest tightened up and I hurt. It didn't go away so I turned the show off. I did some breathing exercises and yoga. Felt much better. I did get some caffeine today so that is possibly why. I also had an interview which could have provoked the anxiety. I'll monitor this more and see if I can feel better.

Thank you, yes it is good to meditate often. I think it may change your brain chemistry, too? For sure, I'm getting better at identifying anxiety triggers as well.

Caffeine can definitely be a trigger for some people, I went to a lecture about anxiety once and they had a slide of easy changes which may have a little impact and staying away from caffeine was one of them. And interviews can be very anxious inducing, they are for me, I have backed out of many of them because I was too anxious to go, so good for you for going to it. Glad you are feeling better.

Interviews can definitely trigger anxiety...and if you typically don't drink caffeine then that could also rev up your system which would make the anxiety attack more intense than it would've been without caffeine in your system... meditation works for me also...remembering to use it is the key so kudos for being resourceful
