How to Relieve Panic and Anxiety Attacks

anxiety and panic attacks Encountering the fear that comes from stress and anxiety attacks can shake you to your core. While the experience is often different for each person, these attacks share similar symptoms. Most of the time an individual loses control of their body, their heart will pound wildly, and they will experience a feeling of fainting and a sudden feeling of nervousness. Some people have a hard time breathing, experience mild shaking and sudden physical discomfort. These symptoms are often confused for a heart attack, but they’re not. That is also one of the biggest reasons people want to end their panic and anxiety attacks.

The following are some tips you can do use order to make your life more comfortable.

Tip 1

One of the best things a person can do to end panic and anxiety attacks is to simply not believe everything you are thinking at the moment. Anxiety, or panic attacks send catastrophic and intense thoughts into your mind. By keeping your mind in check and remembering that these kind of thoughts are just manifestations of your brain, you can reduce your symptoms.

Tip 2

Practicing positive self-talk can also work wonders to end panic and anxiety attacks. There are some cases where people feel ashamed and are very critical about themselves when they experience these types of disorders. Instead of self-criticism or pointing fingers, practicing positive self-talk is a great way to calm yourself down.  Also, remember anxiety or panic attacks affects 6.8 million adults, or 3.1% of the U.S. population. You are not alone. There is nothing to feel ashamed about.

Tip 3

Using ice cubes is another common technique people use to stay calm. Even though it is kind of silly, doing this technique is a great way to divert your attention from the disorder, especially if the attack is very intense. Just hold, the ice cube in your hand focuses your attention on the discomfort rather than the attack.

Tip 4

You can also just do something that stimulates your mind and or body. Exercises like taking a shower or walking outside, can quickly reduce your symptoms. Just having a steady exercise plan can greatly help reduce the symptoms of these disorders.

Tip 5

Deep breathing techniques are another way many people practice to manage this disorder. It fact, your normal, shallow breathing can cause hyperventilation. Breathing deeply can help slow down your heart-rate and help you take back control. So if you practice breathing deeply and have a regular exercise program you’re half way there.

Even though these panic and anxiety attacks can be incapacitating, keep in mind they are also manageable. Understanding the symptoms and having some tools to use when they strike will help you get better quicker. Make the commitment to make the lifestyle changes you need in order to end your panic and anxiety attacks.

Start by putting these tips to use today.
