Is your anxiety worse in the morning or evening?

It kind of just depends for me. Mine tends to be worse an hour or two after I wake up and in the afternoon/early evening, but it's been all over the place in the past week. Recently I had an anxiety attack at night while as I was falling asleep (very rare for me!) and this morning within a few minutes of waking up I had an episode. The unpredictability makes it fun...NOT! It does keep me on my toes I guess..

My anxiety comes out to play in the late afternoon and early evening usually. My mornings are good, and if they aren't, the anxiety usually goes away with breathing exercises and working out. I also speculate that too much caffeine in the morning makes me feel very good, but that the crash that occurs in the afternoon is probably making things worse.

Definitely in the morning, as soon as I open my eyes I feel anxious and shaky and dread the thought of the day ahead. By mid afternoon I feel much better and I look forward to the evenings, and then the cycle starts again.

I already answered before, but mine have always been much worse upon waking up. When i had panic attacks they would always be in the morning, and years ago 99 percent of them would be as soon as i would wake up for no reason at all.

Now i really wouldn't say i have panic attacks anymore, however when i am going through anxiety it's upon waking up that it's dreadful. Sometimes(usually when i haven't been consistent with the meds) i will wake up and feel anxiety when i havent knowingly been worrying about anything.

My anxiety is worse around the afternoon, when my mind starts going 100 mph and start thinking all these thoughts.
By the time night hits, I’ve already thought out every possible situation that I’m just ready for bed and over it. Go to sleep. Wake up. Repeat.

I start off well in the morning, usually it builds by mid afternoon and then calms down by the time I go to sleep.

Usually, if something comes up, then I get nervous for about 48 hours straight.
