Controlling Anxiety By Yourself

These are some good advice to control your anxiety

Breathing - Learn to breathe from your diaphragm, your tummy should rise and fall with your breath as well as your chest. Ensure your out breath is longer than the in one. A count of 4 in – 6 out is great. Use this as soon as you feel panic rising. Alternatively, if you find this difficult hold your breath for a few seconds. This resolves some of the dizzy feeling and any tingling in fingers and toes.

Distraction- As soon as you feel the anxiety rising and you get afraid – do something different. Really different. Change your environment, talk to someone, do something to distract yourself. 
Immerse yourself in something that takes your whole attention and needs detailed thinking. Plan a party, write an article, learn a new hobby – something right brained is particularly effective such as a musical instrument or creative design, photography, dressmaking, art, singing, sport, research for a project. 

See how much better you feel when your full attention is elsewhere. 
Learn and be confident that you can overcome anxiety by distraction. Later on you will learn to stop anxiety before getting to this stage but for now take comfort in knowing you can control it.

This is often enough to dissipate the panic. Some folk like company during these frightening events, others prefer to be quiet and alone. Either is fine.

Comfort yourself – be totally positive - but do allow yourself to go with it and the symptoms. Don’t fight panic, it makes it worse. Keep giving yourself positive messages that this will pass naturally and cannot harm you - breath and distract. 

Keep a journal. Initially get a blank book and just write whatever comes into your mind about who you are, how you got here, how you’re feeling today. 

Going forward resolve to write in it every day. 
Sometimes there may only be the bare facts of what you ate, where you went and that there were no issues but initially and on some days you may have lots to say.

Certainly in the initial stages track food, drink and sleep patterns, what your fears are, how they manifest themselves, what small task you set yourself to do, how it went and so forth. For ladies it is also worth tracking menstrual cycles.. As we move through stages in our female life it is possible that you may get PMS symptoms that you didn't have a few years ago.

There is really relief in writing plus it gives a massive boost to your confidence when you see progress in the making. When we’re anxious we forget easily and have poor concentration and only a few days later you may not recall just how you were on a certain day or even what you did.

Regular exercise – uses the adrenaline/ noradrenaline and the cortisol that are secreted when panic sets in and enhances endorphines (happy chemical) production. Walking or swimming are good places to start if you’ve not exercised for a long time.

Relaxation classes - good if you’ve got continual whirring thoughts: Tai’ chi, Yoga or meditation – promotes complete relaxation as well as stretching. This has a cumulative effect so try it regularly. The meditation part also helps learn to still the mind and cumulatively is a very effective exercise to learn to use during panic. Brings back down the body ‘normal’ stress level. 

Relaxation CD's are extremely useful. Find one you like and stick to it. Play it every day whether you are stressed or not and soon whenever you feel anxious just putting it on will relieve that tension. There is a panic specific relaxation CD that comes as part of the CD set 

Massage – This is good for headaches and unexplained pains in upper body or legs. It releases the tension that builds up in your tissues. Often with anxiety we store it in major muscle groups apart from the usual chronic areas such as shoulders and neck. Wit panic often major muscle groups such as leg muscles can go into spasm. 

Intestinal disturbances : A fast reaction from the guts is extremely common, you may find you get wild disturbances. The flight or flight reaction can cause the guts to want to empty so you may have diarrhoea as a primary symptom. IBS is often diagnosed if you have chronic intestinal disturbances and you report it to your doctor and get it investigated. When you learn to control anxiety, it usually subsides to a manageable level . Dietary changes are often helpful.

churny tummy with or without nausea can usually be relieved by tonic or soda water leading to a good big burp or two.

Bach remedies will take the edge off panic and anxiety. These are flower essences, are completely safe and have no side effects
A couple of squirts in a bottle of water and sip liberally all day or 2 drops on tongue in a crisis.

 Rescue remedy is the main one used which is a combination of 5 essences. Additionally I used Aspen for fear, Cherry plum for terror and Rock rose for fear of losing control. 

Nutritional supplements – Having panic and anxiety is extremely draining on your body resources. 
A strong 50 mg Vitamin B complex supplement is highly recommended as is Omega 3 oil ,Vitamin C and extra calcium and magnesium.

If you are not eating properly or having trouble with nausea and vomiting please do start a liquid mineral /vitamin supplement such as Maximols that you can buy from this site. You will not improve if you are nutritionally running on fumes.

Unless you’re intolerant, warm milk at night contains tryptosan which promotes sleep and relaxation. 
Turkey breast also contains tryptosan 

Aromatherapy oils - lavender, clary sage, Chamomile, vetiver. Just a sniff or two of lavender oil can be very helpful in getting you through a difficult situation.

Herbs - If you are really shaky you can take passiflora/lemon balm/valerian root/ hops tinctures for instant help or you can take tablets regularly to maintain calm.

St Johns Wort can also help with depression but doesn’t kick in for 3 weeks or so.

Kava Kava is brilliant for anxiety but is currently withdrawn from the market whilst investigations go on into possible liver side effects complicated by anxious people often taking to alcohol for relief.

For constant insomnia melatonin is excellent. It’s not available in the UK but widely available in the US where its main use is for jetlag.

With all of the herbs above if you are on any other medications at all then you must check it out carefully and ask for professional advice. SJW is a definite No if you’re on the pill, immunosuppressants or anti coagulants. 

Food and drink: It is worthwhile when acutely anxious, trying to eat little but often and keep to mainly protein and complex carbohydrates - nuts/seeds are a great choice, it’s recommended to have a protein based breakfast when you get up and then a snack within 2 - 3 hours – please avoid sugary things.
This takes the strain off your adrenals glands and maintains and regulates your blood sugar.

Caffeine – reduce intake slowly if taken to excess. This includes the new drinks advertised for energy and stimulation and colas as well as tea and coffee.

Alcohol: many people do resort to a glass of wine or 2 to help them relax. Before they know it - it's 3-4 then day time drinking - then all day drinking.
Do not go down this route. Alcohol is a popular and easily available 'sticking plaster' treatment for anxiety. 

It is also a disaster waiting to happen. It promises much initially, but is always a disappointment later. It is a depressant drug.

Many ‘spontaneous’ Panic attacks come shortly after alcohol and recreational drug intake.

Talk therapy
Talking does help but unless it’s an informal chat with friends, try to make the talks productive. 

Think of the messages you’re giving yourself every day. 

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is the gold standard treatment of choice now which addresses how your thoughts affect you every minute of every day.
With about 90% of panic attacks you can revise your self communication and stop these happening, you can also address your excessive worrying traits. It is not easy and takes time and patience but it is extremely successful and this is included within the chapters of the CD set. 

Part of this is restructuring the neural pathways in our minds. Once we have done something once or twice our minds learn the sequence so can help us perform better ie know the way to a specific location. 

Once we’ve done it a couple of times it’s an anchored route, it’s the same with our fears. Once something has succeeded in frightening us, our minds automatically learns the process and therefore almost automatically leads us to a continued fear of certain things. Next time it senses something similar it gives us a warning and asks wit symptoms whether this is to be avoided too.

Thus the continuing list of growing fears where we had none previously. These neural pathways need to be broken and new ones built. This takes about 30 - 45 days to anchor and is a case of safe repetition.
Drive over the bridge you dread and you’ll feel extremely frightened and experience all the awful symptoms and maybe panic. You survive - just!!

Next time you do it again - you’ve positive messages to tell yourself and to reassure yourself with as you’ve already survived once. You still feel awful and frightened but again you survive. Next time may already be getting a bit easier and once you’ve been doing it daily for a month the fear will almost have dissipated – providing you are reinforcing the positive messages each time. Doing it with gritted teeth still actively visualizing all the possible extreme troubles and misfortune that could befall you will not help ridyourself of the fear. 

Do watch out for your thought patterns , they can be very powerful in keeping you anxious and in panic mode. 
Our thought process and what we actually do to ourselves ….

Take a minute : Is this following statement true ? …..
When your mind is sexually aroused, the body responds in an unmistakable fashion.

This is also true for every other aspect of your thought process...

If you think thoughts that frighten you then you will feel fear 
If you think despairing negative thoughts the body will respond by feeling worthless and depressed.

Your perception of events is of critical importance, not necessarily the events themselves. And by manipulating these perceptions, it becomes possible to diminish discomfort & pain.

General advice:

Do not allow yourself to start avoiding anything or anywhere. Agoraphobia soon sets in. You are your own safe person and place.

Where you are at the time may be a trigger but once you learn to not have panic any more it just doesn’t matter.
Look after yourself emotionally, physically, spirituality and nutritionally and you will be making a head start in your recovery.
All these points are covered in great detail within the Ultimate Anxiety Solution.
You can overcome this anxiety and rid yourself of panic attacks.

Proactiveness + Positivity + Persistence + Perseverance + Practice =  Progress

I wish you every success on your recovery path.

How To Relieve Anxiety Without Medication

Anxiety disorders are an increasingly common problem facing people today. The rapid lifestyle and technological changes that have taken place over the last hundred years have brought with them an increase in stress, anxiety and panic for everyday people.
This has resulted in an inevitable increase in people searching for how to relieve anxiety disorders.
It is estimated that in these modern times there are approximately forty million American adults each year who are suffering from anxiety disorders. This situation is not just confined to the U.S either, with similar problems being experienced around the world.

If you are looking for ways to cope with anxiety, it is important to learn how to relieve anxiety naturally. Anxiety management techniques that focus on how to relieve anxiety without medication, will undoubtedly be best for your physical and mental health in the long run.

How to relieve anxiety – anxiety solutions

The following are a number of ways to relieve anxiety. This includes lifestyle changes, which are worth considering to help bring you some relief from your excessive anxiety problem.

1. Exercise

Many studies have been carried out into the effects of exercise on anxiety levels. In one study it was shown that a ten week program of exercise, undertaken by people suffering from panic disorder, had the same impact on anxiety levels as a commonly
prescribed anti-anxiety drug.
Regular thirty minute sessions of aerobic exercise, that are sufficient to get your heart rate going, can have a calming effect on the mind and the reduction of your anxiety levels are often noticed very quickly.
Who needs medication when there are ways of treating anxiety without medication which also benefit your overall health, with no harmful side effects? If you are not already doing this, i strongly urge you to give it a try.

2. Meditation

Meditation is a method of self regulation of the mind that has been practiced in various forms for thousands of years.
Scientific studies have shown that meditation can cause a significant reduction in anxiety levels in people who are suffering from panic disorder or generalized anxiety disorder, including people also displaying agoraphobia.
Excessive anxiety is often brought about by our own hyper active thought processes. Meditation can help the mind to achieve stillness and peacefulness, and in doing so naturally helps with relieving anxiety.

3. Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy uses the essential oils from certain plants, which are mixed with either oil or alcohol. These aromatic compounds

Panic Attack Medication – The Truth You Need To Know!

The first time your anxiety disorder fully reveals itself can be a terrifying and confusing experience.
There you are, going through your everyday routine, when all of a sudden, without any rational reason or warning your anxiety levels go off the scale.
You’ve just had the first of what turns out to be a series of panic attacks.

Scary thoughts run through your mind, maybe there’s something seriously wrong with you, maybe you have a problem with your heart, maybe this is a serious threat to your health!
You start to feel more and more anxiety about everyday things, afraid to go out, irrational fears stalking your every waking moment. You’re scared and you feel like you’re struggling to cope, so you book an appointment to see your local doctor for advice.

Panic attack medication – the prescription

Your doctor listens to your story, asks a few questions, and conducts a physical examination to see if he can find any physical cause for the symptoms you are describing. 

Depending on your doctor’s knowledge at this point he may recommend you to a specialist for further testing, or he may realize that there is nothing physically wrong with you.
Either way, the end result is often the same, you are reassured that everything is alright, but recognising how stressed and anxious you appear to be, the doctor makes out a prescription for some medication to help you relax.

The panic attack medication that is given to you can sometimes help in the short term to relieve some of the symptoms that you are experiencing, but the relief you feel from this treatment can only be considered temporary.
It is not a way of curing your problem and giving you back your life to enjoy again. As soon as you stop taking the panic attack medication your problems will usually resurface and torment you.
Even more worrying is the fact that many of the drugs you are offered have harmful side effects and can be very addictive.

The main types of panic attack medication

There are a number of different drugs that are used when dealing with anxiety disorders. Probably the most common are the benzodiazepines. This class of drugs includes the well known Valium, Xanax, Ativan, Klonopin and Librium.
Benzodiazepines act fairly quickly, and produce a sedative effect. It can temporarily reduce the feeling of anxiety, but can also lead to side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness, confusion and impaired thinking. Because it builds up in the body these side effects can become even more pronounced with prolonged use.

But the worst problem with the use of benzodiazepines, comes because of the need to continue using it in the long term to manage your condition. With symptoms returning upon stopping taking the drug, the risk is that your use may continue beyond the point at which you become addicted.
The withdrawal from bezodiazepines can be a harrowing experience, with insomnia, tremors, muscle spasms, gastric problems, depression and anxiety all common symptoms. Sometimes the effects can be worse, with depersonalization, derealization, hallucinations and psychosis. This experience can last for months.

Added to this will usually be the return of your anxiety condition, as the root cause of your problem has still not been identified and dealt with. The combination of withdrawal and full exposure to your anxiety disorder can be very difficult to cope with.
Long term use of benzodiazepines often leads to depression, and the escalating dosage required to overcome the effects of the tolerance that you develop to the drug can increase the risk of experiencing depressive symptoms which can also lead to suicidal thoughts and feelings.

A different type of medication often prescribed are anti-depressants. Commonly these are Serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), of which the best known is Prozac. These have less harmful side effects than the benzodiazepines, but are also more limited in their effectiveness to treat anxiety disorders, and usually take over a month to start having an effect.
However the side effects do still exist, and use of SSRIs can mean having to live with fatigue, nausea, tremors, headaches, weight gain, decreased sex drive, insomnia, anxiety and diarrhea.

There is also the danger that, in some people, long term use of anti-depressants can actually cause an increase in depression and anxiety and consequently an increased risk of suicide.
While they are not as addictive as benzodiazepines, withdrawal from anti-depressants can be very tough. It is common for it to cause depression, and can also result in tremors, insomnia and nightmares, and of course the resumption of your anxiety disorder in full force.

Beta blockers are another type of medication that are sometimes used to help anxiety disorders. These are more frequently used to treat people with heart and blood pressure problems. They are not FDA approved for use with anxiety disorders but can be prescribed because there are scientific reports that support their use.
While they can help to keep some of the physical symptoms under control, like trembling and sweating, they are not useful for dealing with the psychological aspects of anxiety disorders.

Consequently they are of very limited use, and mainly seem to offer help to those with social phobia and performance anxiety in dealing with specific situations, such as giving a speech or performing in a public venue.
They also have a number of adverse reactions associated with them, including nausea, hallucinations, diarrhoea, dizziness and fatigue. Commonly prescribed beta blockers include Inderal and Tenormin.

Panic attack medication is not a cure for your anxiety disorder

Medication can be of help to people with severe symptoms who are desperate for immediate relief, but it should only ever be viewed as a very short term aid. Ultimately you need to cure yourself of this condition if you want to live a happy and satisfying life in the future, and the drugs you are prescribed are unlikely to do that for you.

If you are currently taking drugs to deal with your anxiety and panic attack problem, strongly consider speaking to your doctor about slowly withdrawing from them, and start looking for a permanent solution that focuses on panic attack treatment without medication.

You don’t have to continue to suffer, or accept a future in which you have to manage your condition. You can beat your anxiety disorder, but you will need to utilse a different treatment method because relying on medication may end up doing you a lot more harm in the long run than it does good.

Stop Anxiety Attack With 5 Simple Ways

Everyone knows how it feels to be anxious. Anxiety attacks can happen in any place, at the most unexpected time. While anxiety is a normal feeling that we all experience at some point in our lives, it can somehow be disturbing, especially because it can affect a person’s state of mind at the time being. This is the reason why it is important to learn How To Stop Anxiety before it leads to something serious. Regardless of the root cause of the anxiety attacks, there are various ways that can help you stop or lessen them:

1. Know the Cause – The first step to address your anxiety attack is knowing the reason behind why you’re being anxious at the moment. People get anxious because of the external things happening in the environment that are highly related to them. For instance, anticipating something bad that is going to happen. Such negative thoughts can trigger an attack. Knowing the reason why you’re anxious can help you find the right technique to stop the attack.
2. Seek Doctor’s Advice – In some cases, people experience unpreventable anxiety attacks, and this can be due to some organic causes such as having eaten some food that can trigger heart palpitations, which can later lead to anxiety attacks. If this is the case, it would be wiser to seek help from a health care physician for the proper treatment to stop anxiety.
3. Stop the Attack before It Happens – You have to get in tuned with your body. This means you have to be able to feel if you’re about to have an anxiety attack. Whenever you feel that you are already in an unstable condition, take a deep breath and try to relax. Free yourself from uncomfortable and negative thoughts so that your anxiousness will not be triggered.
4. Get Enough Rest – Sometimes, people do get anxious easily because their body is tired and that their brain doesn’t have enough oxygen. When the body is not in the right condition, it is not impossible for you to get anxious easily even on small things. Thus, it is very important to get plenty of sleep at night and take some naps whenever you have some spare time. In addition, it is important to eat the right kind of food in order for you to keep a healthy mind and body.
5. Relax and Breathe – Find some time to relax, breath in, and get in touch with nature. As what most experts would say, one way to prevent or lessen attacks is through meditation. Find a place where you can be alone. Get that inner peace and just try to relax your mind and body.
If you’re prone to having anxiety attacks, never walk on the street by yourself. If it is possible, always drag along a friend or a family member to accompany you whenever you’re out on the busy streets. This way, you won’t be alone when the attack comes in the most unexpected place and time. In fact, this is also one way to stop anxiety attacks because you feel safe and secured knowing that you are not alone.

Does Social Anxiety Lead To Depression?

A defined number of people sometimes experience having a hard time in trying to interact with others. Shyness, isolation, and lack of interest prevent people from having good interactions with others. This is felt by certain individuals and gets to a certain point that is constantly just hard to manage.
These are people suffering from a specific type of anxiety. Since anxiety is associated with fear and worry, social anxiety may also have the same characteristics or symptoms. People who are dealing with social anxiety feel that everyone around them is watching their every move, staring at them and judging whatever they might be doing, and even judging them as individuals (even if it is not really true).

Social Anxiety = Paranoia

Socially anxious individuals cannot seem to relax and enjoy themselves while they are in public. These people think that other people are trying to evaluate them in some sort of way, being critical in what they do or say. People dealing with social anxiety feel the self consciousness and the idea of critical judgment while they are in other people’s presence. It is considered hardly possible to just relax, focus, and go with the flow when one feels the anxiety and fear at the same time.  Individuals dealing with this type of anxiety would probably like to be left alone (I can attribute to this I my own 6 year struggle). They seem to be more comfortable with doors closed behind them. Social anxiety is like paranoia, feeling that other people are observing them, criticizing them, judging them always in a negative way. Authority figures are believed to be the worst type of people that socially anxious individuals can encounter. Supervisors and bosses from their work, and also those who seem “better” then them can make them feel a higher sense of anxiety, fear, and worry.

Keeping Your Social Anxiety To Yourself

It is a known fact that not all people are aware of this specific type of anxiety disorder. Some people get diagnosed as having schizophrenia, manic depression, panic disorders, personality disorders, or even clinical depression. All these are just misdiagnoses that may be more damaging to the person with social anxiety. Considering this situation, not all people with social anxiety know that they have such a disorder, since this type of disorder is not generally discussed in the media. Therefore, they just tend to keep it to themselves, thinking that they are the only ones dealing with this kind of anxiety. Due to this, socially anxious people tend to feel the surge of depression. They do not talk to other people regarding their problems, their feelings and emotions. Everything seems to be negative in some way, and all their thoughts are regarded as irrational.

Get The Support You Need

I’ve realized that social anxiety is serious if not treated as soon as possible. Proper therapy and consultation should be provided to those who are suffering from this kind of anxiety. It is better to get help in order to avoid an increase in this form of anxiety, since this would worsen as time goes by. Family members can be of big help too, seeing that their loved one is suffering from such an ordeal. Proper communication is key, and social anxiety could be treated in due time.

What You Need To Know About Separation Anxiety Disorder

An individual who experiences extreme anxiety when he or she is away from home is probably suffering from separation anxiety disorder. It probably also apply to places or people that the individual has very deep emotional connection to.

This condition can happen to anyone regardless of their age and gender. In fact, it is known that almost 7% of adults all around the world is experiencing adult separation anxiety disorder compared to only 4% of children affecting by the same health condition.

Children will tend to cry when they are separated from their parents during their early years. Many kids started to experience separation anxiety disorder in their first year. They will get upset when the parent leaves them to nanny or someone else to take care of them for work.

This health condition is known to affect 5% of children from the USA between the age of 7 and 11 years old. It only affect about 1.3% of teens regardless of their gender.

Don’t be surprised but separation anxiety can also happen to animals like dogs, you’ll notice them chewing to relieve stress.

But don’t be confused with separation anxiety disorder with separation anxiety because the latter is a normal condition that can occur to anyone. You’ll notice that young children will tend to look for something that they know exist but couldn’t see. It could be their favorite toy or someone close to them. They might cry, or stay silent to express their anxiety and as a parent, you’ll need to observe their behavior so that you know how to react when such situation happen. You can read stories for them to listen, or invite them to do something enjoyable together.

There are a few reasons why people can have separation anxiety. For example, young children are probably worried that something bad is going to happen to their parent when they leave for a long period of time. Another sign of separation anxiety could be the children probably refuse going to school so they can stay with their parents. Other symptom can be, they might experience nightmare and scared to be left alone.

Separation anxiety disorder usually happens when the child experience a tragic accident or trauma in his life. Childs with parents who are over-protective will tend to have higher chance to develop separation anxiety. But it is important to check the children’s background as well because they probably are getting this condition from one of the family member. Child and parents can interact with each others anxiety. After all, there have been several cases that proven children to inherit separation anxiety from one of their parent or other family members with anxiety or mental disorders as it is passed down through genes.

The whole process of dealing with child who is experiencing separation anxiety can be a daunting task. Some parent might not be able to cope with their child’s irregular behavior. It is important to remain calm and let your children know that they will stay safe even if they’re away from you. This will help them to cope with the situation easier and resolve the problem.

If There Is LOVE, Anxiety NO MORE

Worried? If yes, anxiety it is! To better understand anxiety, let us first realize its causes. There are many factors that resulted to anxiety. If you are stress at work, anxiety sets in. If you are worried about completing the job and meeting deadlines otherwise you’re losing it, anxiety sets in. And finally if you have acne, anxiety sets in especially to teenagers. When you continuously entertaining worries you will eventually have what we called “panic attacks”. Panic which will do no good but might bring unpleasant situations instead which of course we do not want to happen.

Let’s take the case of worrying for having acne, if an adolescent or even an adult worries much on having that skin condition their quality of life is greatly affected. This may cause low self-esteem, lacks self-confidence and may even change their outlook in life. It resulted to suppression of their talents, capabilities and skills as they will always think of their physical appearances. Some might even chose to just isolate themselves in their home. Some might even commit suicide due to severe anxiety. These are proven in a study that shows that a high percentage of those having acne reported severe anxiety. Why is that so? Probably because of the society we are currently revolving. People are so judgmental that they will criticize a person based mainly on their physical appearances. Some befriended others based on how they look and how they carry themselves. Even in looking and applying for work employer tends to look at the applicant’s physical appearance and eventually consider them hired if they appealed to the former’s senses.

We can no longer change how our society revolves. The best thing that we can do not for the society but for ourselves mainly is to treat anxiety. To treat anxiety, first identify the origin, identify the element that causes anxiety to you. In short identify the problem that is bothering you the most before you can finally say that you are now ready for treatment. Although there are many ways to treat anxiety, not all who are experiencing anxiety are to try those treatments. Not everyone reacts positively to the same treatment. You need to observe yourself and if needed seek the assistance of a counselor or a doctor for that matter.

How are we going to do that? Let’s take our example again – if your anxiety is caused by having acne, then we should eradicate acne. But first we should learn to love ourselves. We should accept who we are. If we don’t accept who we are, who are we to expect that others will accept us with open arms? Forget of those physical appearances first—YOU SHOULD FIRST LEARN TO LOVE YOURSELF and everything follows.

The main source behind the trigger point may differ but all of them share the same history of build up. For instance, an increased heartbeat plays the role of a trigger and an individual starts worrying that they might suffer from attack in the heart and the real cause of heartbeats might be an imbalance of chemicals in the body or for some other cause but when a person worries in a continuous manner they might get affected by a fear of death in their mind.

You should make use of the medication for anti anxiety and antis depressant like for example the Selective Reuptake Inhibitors and Benzodiazepines.

Anxiety can help a person to remain focused and alert and at the same time motivate them to solve their issues.

Fighting Anxiety Attack In Public

Everyone that suffers from panic and anxiety attacks in public knows that familiar feeling of shame and embarrassment. Your heart starts to race a hundred beats a minute, you begin to sweat and the world sometimes begins to spin around you. Recovering from an anxiety attack in public is possible, no matter how hard it may seem to be on the surface.
Obviously the first thing you should do is try to find a semi-private to private setting. If you are in the supermarket for example, go to the bathroom. If you are in a meeting, excuse yourself for a moment to go to the restroom.

Relax your mind regardless of whether you are able to get out of the situation or not. Do this by understanding that the worst is not so bad. If you are having a panic attack and are concerned about what your friends or those around you are thinking, then you are wasting brain cells on a problem that does not exist.
Remember that people are rarely as shallow and scary as we think they are in these situations. If you saw a stranger or even a friend struggling to gain their breath or having chest pains, would you laugh at them or ridicule them? Of course not. So too will those around you fully understand your situation and be thoughtful as a rule. If not, then you seriously need to change the people you are surrounding yourself with.
The most effective method of eliminating anxiety attacks in public is exposure. This should only be tried under the supervision and care of a therapist, but it is effective. Most of the time with anxiety attacks, a certain situation or scenario brings on the attack. For example, the man that is fine until he gets in front of a group to speak, or the woman that gets panic attacks in the grocery store when alone. There are no limits to the various situations that can bring on anxiety attacks in individuals.
Whatever the situation is, exposure therapy will allow you immerse yourself in that situation or scenario under controlled circumstances. This builds your confidence and shows you there is nothing to fear. Again, this is not a good idea for every anxiety problem. It is worth asking your therapist about.
Another effective quick method to handle anxiety attacks in public is to follow the situation through to the worst. In other words, ask yourself what is the worst that could happen. Force yourself to be realistic as much as possible. Usually the conclusion is that the worst is not the end of the world, and the anxiety will subside.

Quick Panic Attack Cure - Finding The Special Place

When you experience a panic attack your body is tricking itself. You are feeling all the normal things that a person would feel if they were facing grave danger. Your body reacts in such a way that you are at optimal attention levels. The only problem is, there is generally no real danger. The result of this panic attack is usually a sensation of being unable to breathe and any number of other symptoms. How do you stop a panic attack in simple language? You show the body that there is no real danger…
The first panic attack cure is to find a calm place. This does not mean that you have to physically go somewhere. We all know that panic attacks are not that simple – they show up at the worst possible times. We can not always pick up and go elsewhere. No, you have to go somewhere in your mind.
Finding that safe place is a process. For some it is a memory of a special place where they once felt safe – in your mother’s arms as a child, at the lake house during that summer vacation or other similar situations. For others it is an imaginary place that they have never been before. Still others find comfort in pretending that they are in Heaven. Whatever your place is, you need to find it if you experience panic attacks.
The problem most people have with this process is that they do not attempt to find that place until the panic attack happens. This is nearly impossible, because your mind is already in panic mode. You must seek out this place while you are feeling relaxed. If you think about it enough, you will find that special place or memory that gives you the warm, Christmas morning fuzzies. Do not give up, as the benefit will be worth it a million times over.

Once you find this place, practice what you will think of when the time comes to use it as a panic attack cure. Narrow it down so that you know exactly what scene, time and place you want to go to in your mind to elicit that calming effect. Practice it until you feel as though it is on autopilot…and then practice it again. This automation will help you when you are having a panic attack and need comfort quickly.
The next step is to learn to identify when a panic attack is coming. Most everyone that has panic attacks knows the feeling just before one comes. For some people the panic attack is slow building and gradual, while others have them more suddenly. Even those that have them suddenly will generally know it is coming in advance.
When you feel a panic attack coming, that is when you go to the special place. Do not wait until you are full blown. You can still use this panic attack cure after a panic attack is already going on, but it is much more effective if you do it just before. The reason is simple – your panic attack can sometimes be headed off entirely. That is always a better choice.
