Anxiety Help-Focus

An anxiety attack, or panic attack is never a nice thing to go through. People have used different methods for many years. Some breathe deeply into paper bags, some focus on something and try to calm their breathing down, and others have mantras (things they say over and over again) to help calm them. There are many others as well, but most deal with deep breathing of one sort or another.
All of these methods could work, and probably do. It depends on the individual and what works best for you.
I have found that many things happen to me, when having a panic attack and most of the time I can stop it before it gets to bad. Usually I feel like I can't breathe, start to get dizzy and then comes the feeling of disassociation(or not being here). It literally feels like you are dying.
The trick, is to train yourself to use a method and practice it, then when the attack comes it will work as a second nature, and your attack will calm down faster and faster.
I have used the mantra and the deep breathing, sometimes one works best and sometimes the other, it depends on the situation.
The main thing is that it works.

Try one, then practice it, and when you have an attack you may find that it works. Maybe not right away, but with some time, it will work quicker.

Today will be a good day!

Anxiety Help-SOME TIPS


Anxiety is a difficult thing to overcome, but you can do it. I will say that the very first thing you should do if you suffer from any anxiety/panic attacks that are very strong, or bothersome to you..........QUIT CAFFEINE!

Yeah, that sounds to any coffee drinkers out there like I just asked you to cut off your nose , but I will tell you that excess caffeine in the system is the first contributor to anxiety/panic attacks.

Stress is a hard thing to manage and caffeine, though we think is helping us get through the day, is only adding to our stress. In small amounts its alright, but if you do suffer from many anxiety/panic attacks, its better that you don't drink any. Remember that this includes dark sodas as well.

Next, if you are inactive, you should get some form of exercise everyday. Now I know the majority of us say things like "I walk all day at my job", "I'm always on my feet" etc. We all have reasons for not exercising, but this only adds to the problem.
Walk briskly at least once a day, if you need to start off slow do so, but try to be active in some form or another. This will slowly but surely help to reduce anxiety, stress and panic attacks.

Hope your day is a good one!

Knowledge is the key when dealing with an anxiety or panic disorder. The more you know about what affects the illness can have on the body, the better you will start to realize what your body is telling you. For example, you are having an anxiety attack. You start to get dizzy, your breathing gets more rapid and soon you feel like you are going to pass out. If you already know that because of the anxiety attack you are not breathing properly that is hyperventilating, you will know what to do to stop it from happening.

If you know that, when you have an anxiety/panic attack, that your body produces a large amount of adrenaline, which in turn causes all sorts of feelings in your body, including dizziness, hyperventilation and a feeling of not being here, then you will know what to do to calm it all down. I will get into techniques in my next blog, but I want you to research as much as you can about the affects of the anxiety/panic attack on the body if you can, if not, I will mention more soon.

First thing you have to do, especially if you are having one now , is recognize that you are having one, and know that it can't really hurt you. Just sit down and breathe deeply.
We can overcome this together!
