Panic attacks can be difficult to deal with. Often characterised as unexpected and sudden bouts of fear, they can happen at the most unexpected of times. In addition, these can come with numerous symptoms like chest pain, nausea, choking sensations, palpitations, and sweating among others. Suffice to say, anxiety attacks can be hard to come to terms with especially for those who are experiencing them for the first time. Fortunately, learning calming techniques during attacks can help you in more ways than you can possibly imagine. Below are some of the methods you can use in the event of panic onslaughts.
1. Focus. Whenever possible, believe that you will be fine. While it is hard to do so while experiencing all the symptoms, it will work to your advantage if you stay on top of your emotions at all times.
2. Mantra. While it may not seem like it will help much at first glance, but having one will help you feel calm and collected in the event of situations as stressful. In fact for others, reciting “everything is alright, I am alright” numerous times will do wonders.
3. Massage. Another effective way to release anxiety is massaging some of your body’s known pressure points. Distinguished ones are found between the first finger and the right thumb, as well as the base of the skull. Similar to using a Sensitive Skin Cleanser to keep your skin radiant, you also need to revisit your body’s pressure points if you wish to experience calm wash over you.
4. Bath. When possible, take a warm bath every night. It is also a prudent idea to add at least 3-5 drops of lavender, German chamomile, and rose oils in the mix. In addition, you can also relax in the bathtub for 20 minutes or so or until such time that you feel tension leaving your body. In addition, it is also a prudent idea to have someone you can talk to and trust. Comfort from someone who understands what you are going through will help make things more tolerable.
Provided you employ one or more of the abovementioned techniques, you can rest assured you can manage anxiety attacks with flying colours.
