Dealing with anxiety/panic attacks!

at August 29, 2014
A/N Before you read this, please be aware that I am NOT a doctor, this is just how I deal with panic attacks. If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to speak with someone, your health is very important!

Panic attacks are something that can affect our day-to-day lives and are a horrible experience to go through. However they can be controlled and not dangerous in the sense that a panic attack will not leave you physically harmed.

Here are my personal tips/advice on how to avoid/control a panic attack 

        Control your breathing!
Take deep breathes in through your nose and then out your mouth. If your breathing is uneven, you'll start to feel a tingling sensation in your hands/ feet/ ankles. To control your breathing is very important when having a panic attack because it can also take away the thoughts of not being able to breathe.

If you experience regular panic attacks then exercising can be very helpful. Even just a walk round the block can help you clear your mind and focus.

        Keep focused on something positive!
When having a panic attack, it sometimes feels like this feeling of anxiousness is never going pass. IGNORE IT!! Focus on something positive such as a happy memory or someone you admire and ignore the feeling that a panic attack bring because the anxiousness and feeling of panic shall soon pass over.

        Speak Up!
If you are having panic attacks regulary or they are starting to interfere with your life then speak up. Your mental health is just as important as your physical health and if you speak up now, then you can get better. Help is out there and you have nothing to be afraid of.
