Dealing with an anxiety attack
if you are struggling with an anxiety attack, whether it is your first or your thirtieth, the sensations will be much the same. If so, you may find yourself struggling to cope. Anxiety attacks may well be all in the mind;, but this doesn’t make the physical sensations you will go through feel any less real. If you are suffering with anxiety attacks on a regular basis it may make it difficult to carry on a normal life, to go to work or to socialise. Anxiety attacks can be brought on by any number of accidents or incidents, or you may simply be predisposed to them. The key is finding out how to cope with them when they do strike.
- Move away. Try to get away from whatever it is that you are panicking about. If you are in a crowd and this is causing your anxiety, then move away and be on your own for a moment. Even if you aren’t completely sure what is causing your panic, moving to a different location may help.
- Breathe. One of the things which makes an anxiety attack so much worse is the hyperventilating that tends to come with this sort of attack. Make sure that you take a moment and think about your breathing, breathing in deeply for a count of five, and out for a count of five.
- Focus on relaxing your muscles. Another thing which is common with anxiety is that every muscle in your body will spasm. Focus on relaxing all of your muscles, as even doing this consciously will cause you to unconsciously relax.
- Walk or run. Moving around can help a lot with anxiety, as it focuses the mind on something else. Don’t just walk slowly around, start to jog or run. This will help you to relax much more easily and force you to breathe more heavily.
