How to Manage Hangxiety

how to manage hangxiety

We’ve all been there. We wake up in the morning feeling terrible, wondering why we’re suddenly filled with anxiety and suffering from all these symptoms. Furthermore, we might even have a headache, feel achy all over, or be generally fatigued. But why do we feel this way? After all, we only had a few drinks at dinner last night. We’re left wondering how just a little bit of alcohol can have such a profound effect on our overall mood.

Nowadays, there is a term for this. It’s called hangxiety. Rocky Mountain IV Medics understands how this feels. Suffering from a little anxiety and depression can bring down your whole day, making you less productive and more irritable around others. That’s why we better aim to understand hangxiety and how we can help treat it so that a few drinks don’t bring you down.

What Is Hangxiety?

The term hangxiety describes the feeling of mild anxiety and depression induced by alcohol. Even after two drinks, you can notice that you’re in a noticeably worse mood the next day. It’s not quite a hangover, but it’s not nothing either.

Hangovers might be known for their physical symptoms, such as headaches and nausea, but hangxiety is more notable for its emotional impacts. Scientific studies have shown that drinking contributes to mood-related issues such as anxiety. This could be because of many factors, including the fact that alcohol disrupts your sleep, which is a huge part of your overall health. We all know how easy it is to be in a bad mood after a night of not sleeping well, almost like being dragged through life against our will. 

So, how can you cure hangxiety? Continue reading as we explain how IV treatment could be a great way to alleviate your hangxiety issues.

What Causes Hangxiety?

In the case of hangxiety, the cause is alcohol, which is known for having powerful effects on the body and mind. Experts have found that hangxiety might be caused by a lack of the brain chemical GABA. When we drink alcohol, it mimics GABA, which is known for its calming effect on the brain. This is the reason one or two drinks makes us more relaxed at first. All the stress of work and day-to-day life become a little more bearable. Unfortunately, when our body returns to its normal state, chemicals such as glutamate can increase, making us feel restless.

It’s almost ironic. Those one or two drinks you had for relaxation are now having the opposite effect. All of a sudden, you’re suffering from hangxiety symptoms and are having a hard time dealing with little things. Another reason for hangxiety might be sugar, which is found in many alcoholic drinks. After several drinks, our body may experience a blood sugar crash. Stress hormones such as cortisol might increase, and disrupted sleep might cause even more mood problems.

No matter what the causes of hangxiety are, we know that the symptoms can bring us down. Let’s discuss what symptoms we need to look out for to determine if we’re suffering from hangxiety.

Hangxiety Symptoms

Depression and anxiety are the main hangxiety symptoms. Since these are broader terms, we need to dive deeper into more specific issues that hangxiety causes. For example, some people experience physical symptoms, such as an increased heart rate and headaches. For others, a general feeling of existential dread can occur, leading them into a spiral of negative thoughts and possibly making them feel paranoid.

The impact of all these symptoms on your life can be substantial. After all, many people’s livelihood depends on them being able to deal with the daily stresses of school, jobs, and the myriad demands of life. Losing a day to depressive symptoms can not only affect our productivity but negatively impact our relationships. Before we know it, we’re totally out of our rhythm because of a little hangxiety.

So what can we do about this? The key is to address your symptoms as quickly as possible and learn how to get over hangxiety. One great way to do this is with IV therapy.

How IV Therapy Can Help With Hangxiety

Many people around the country already use IV therapy to effectively relieve hangovers, as well as mood issues such as depression and anxiety. Since hangxiety symptoms can be very similar to these mood issues (while also being caused by alcohol), IV therapy is a great way to elevate our mood and get the boost we need to overcome our mood issues.

For one, chronic dehydration only accentuates mood issues. IV therapy quickly hydrates your body, addressing dehydration fast while also boosting your energy levels. When your body feels better, it’s often much easier for your mind to recover as well.

Our IV packages also include a number of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that are essential to a healthy and vibrant life. Ingredients such as vitamin C, vitamin B12, and glutathione nourish your body, helping you to overcome your hangxiety symptoms effectively. We can even include pain medications in your IV treatment for hangxiety, giving you relief from nagging aches and pains.
