Panic Attacks And Anxiety Advice - 5 Methods To Stop Panic Attacks
Stopping panic attacks can be quite a task. When you're having one it seems like you're a complete loss for control and that there is no escape, but the truth is it is completely within your grasp to regain your composure as soon as you sense your loss of control and to minimize the panic attack's effects on your mind and body. Below are a few tips that can help you to stop your panic attacks:
Don't Try To Stop It
Just like trying to counteract your negative thoughts with positive thoughts, trying to stop the attack with will power alone will only give it more energy and ferocity. Instead, just remind yourself that your panic is like a wave in the ocean. It seems menacing now as it's rolling over you, but soon it will roll on to shore, break and leave you standing tall. Stand your ground. Focus on not losing your control, not on stopping the emotions you're feeling. Let the attack wash over you and remind yourself that it will be over soon.
Watch your diet
Diet can play a really important role when it comes to stopping panic attacks. You don't need to radically change your diet or anything, but you do need to watch the amount of sugar and caffeine in your diet as these products can make your symptoms worse.
Most people never really consider this when trying to stop a panic attack. When you are anxious you take short shallow breathes from your chest. This makes your body feel as though it is suffocating because you do not get enough oxygen... it really puts your body under a lot of stress. Make sure to breathe deep and slow from your abdomen... not your chest. Once you lean to breathe properly you will be able to stop a panic attack.
Although most herbal remedies say that they have no approved therapeutic claims, trying some herbs is not a bad idea at all. But these herbs can help you in some ways. Just keep in mind that in general, it is your own brain that decides and determines whether you'll have a panic attack or not.
Exercise On A Regular Basis.
There is no method that will relieve the stress in your life like working out every day. I'm not talking about one to two times a week I'm talking every day. The routine of every day workouts for at least 20 minutes of cardio workout will kick start your hormonal system to produce stress relieving elements directly into your bloodstream.
Stopping panic attacks may seem difficult, but it should be made easier with these tips. These tips may not cure you of panic attacks, but that is what an anti-anxiety system is for. I'd recommend you use these tips as a supplement to a system that gets to the root of the problem, which is your mind.
I hope that these tips will help you, good luck!
