How To Handle Your Next Anxiety Attack

Below are some points on how to handle your next anxiety attack – these are things I swear by, you’d be surprised at how much this actually helps.

Give it a go & comment below if you have tried these things & if they work for you.

Also, I’d love to hear what other people do to cope & handle their panic attacks.

 

  1. Don’t be afraid – This feeling is only temporary! You’ve done it before & you can do it again! not being afraid will really take the power away from being anxious.
  2. Move – Moving helps your mind, soul & body stay empowered. Pace the floor, walk around your house or even go for a walk.
  3. Talk – Anxiety held in has more power. Stay with someone, call someone, even say the way you feel outloud (sounds silly, but really helps)
  4. Breathe – Don’t forget to breathe! Sounds silly, but we tend to hold our breath when we are anxious which causes us to become very lightheaded. We tend to hyperventilate & we do not give the body long enough to retain carbon dioxide and so the body cannot use the oxygen it has. This gives a feeling that there isn’t enough air in the body, when actually there is too much.
  5. Feel empowered – You are strong! Keep faith & trust in yourself, this won’t last long, it’ll be over before you know it.
  6. Listen to some calming music – It soothes the mind! You would be surprised at how much mediating music helps the mind & how much it really can calm us down physically & also calm down our breathing.

  1. Listening to music helps for me, but most times I listen to upbeat music which will encourage me to move or else I will sit in the same spot for the rest of the day. Anyway great list!

    1. Yes, music really helps for me also! I feel it also depends on my mood, that will depend on the music – if I am wanting to work out, it’ll be upbeat motivating music. However, if I am anxious, the music has to be calm so I find my breath.
