5 Tips for Panic Attacks

By Curtis Dawson

First of all, a panic attack is a sudden intense feeling of fear and discomfort. It happens when something triggers your brain into thinking its in danger than it panics (hence the name "panic attack"). There are a few things you can do to reduce the risk of panic attacks and to help get rid of one you are currently having. It is all about just calming down and relaxing. Here are a few tips you can use to help:

1. Tell yourself to calm down. There is nothing in this world that needs to be rushed. Take a few deep breathes and jump back into reality.

2. A lot of people get panic attacks from obsessive thinking. Try not to think to much because cramming all those thoughts and worries into your head will eventually come out and will most likely be caused by anxiety.

3. Remember that panic attacks are not self-caused. A panic attack is formed from something you fear or are discomforted by. You ARE stronger than this panic attack and you CAN defeat it.

4. Panic attacks can be a form of overreacting. Stop overreacting you have nothing to overreact about. Nothing in this world involves overreacting. Take it from me I overreact at the smallest things like when I get home and I see an unknown phone number on my girlfriend's cell phone.

5. A good way to relief stress and anxiety is music. I have heard from a number a people that music can sooth the soul depending on what you listen to. So pop in your greatest hits CD and just sit down and relax. Just remember that nothing is stressful until you make it that way.
