When a Panic Attack Hits You: 3 Ways to Overcoming this Panic Disorder and Anxiety
A Panic Disorder is a Common Thing
A lot of people suffers from a Panic Disorder, these days more than ever as the general feeling of uncertainty about the future spreads all over the world. When everything seems as strong as crystals easy to get broken to pieces is it that strange?
A Panic Attack lets you powerless and unable to do anything but the following three tools are able to bring back the power in your hands and reduce the strength of attacks.
This is not going to be a kind of explanatory hub about what is a Panic Attack. This hub is aimed at giving you three simple and easy to use ways to deal with any Anxiety Disorder, but first, as usual, always check with your doctor first.
Control your Panic Disorder Guide
Tool N°1: SHAKE YOUR BODY
Don't get petrified. When you begin to feel your breath shortening and your body paralyzing try to move. Don't begin to jump around like a grasshopper, or this together with difficulties with breathing could be too much for you. Walk around, maybe twirling your arms, Clear your Mind, do whatever you like but move your body so that hormones and tensions get discharged and move your attention from your thoughts or feelings to your body. Then add to Shaking your body both the following techniques.
Tool N°2: SING A SONG
It's not so clear yet why this works but believe me it's impossible to be paralyzed by a panic attack, fear or anxiety if you sing. It seems that singing we use a part of our brain which interferes with the part dealing with those emotions. And the wonderful thing is that the singing part is stronger then the other. So sing, in your mind but better aloud, or at least softly, sing and stop immediately the paralyzing panic attack which will fade away. Also singing too shifts your attention from your mind to your body.
Tool N°3 LAUGH
Again this works in a similar way to N°2. You simply can't be scared if you are smiling or better laughing until your sides split, if you understand what I mean. Smiling has a direct influence on our moods and it works even if it's a faked smile, so even if it is more a sneer than a grin do it anyway, as it will become natural and real soon. Put a smile on your face and it will become soon a true smile.
"I'm singing in the rain.....................................!"
So, next time you feel the Signal that a panic attack is arriving, Shake your body, Sing a song and at the same time Smile.
Using these three tools will require a little effort at the beginning but they will soon become second nature and you will find that as soon as you feel you're becoming a little tense you'll be already singing, smiling and moving our body. You will be able to stop a panic attack almost immediately.
As usual The Power is in Your Hands, and in Your Mind.
Simply A Mith
While I know that I've put the subject of dealing with a Panic Attack in a very simple way I know that most of the times these three techniques are all you need.
Clearly to deal definitely with a Panic Disorder you must see a relevant professional like a Psychologist to understand the reasons of it but as an immediate patch these 3 techniques are great.
They worked for me, and I guess they can work also for you. Obviously you must always check with your doctor, but keep in mind that if we are the ones that, sometimes for a good reason, create our fears we are also the ones who can make our fears to fade away. We have that power.
Shake, Sing and Smile!
What do you think about these three techniques to deal with your Anxiety Disorder? Do you think you can handle better your Panic Disorder now that you know them?
