    Help with a road traffic accident in Taunton Deane


    AWARE to stop panic attacks fast

    If you have a panic attack while you are driving, it could lead to a car accident as you may find yourself unable to concentrate on the road and the situation you are in. But some people suffer panic attacks shortly after a Taunton Deane car accident, as getting back behind the wheel brings up bad memories. Other people are simply more likely to suffer panic attacks when it comes to driving because they are of a nervous disposition. If you’d like help with a road traffic accident in Taunton Deane, where panic attacks are an issue, call Accident Advice Helpline.

    Tips to help prevent panic attacks from AWARE

    If you want to avoid a panic attack and thus a Taunton Deane car accident, there is a way to stop your panic attack quickly called AWARE. Here is what it means:

    • A: Accept the anxiety. One of the things which can make a panic attack that much worse is trying to fight it and stop feeling panicky. Panic attacks thrive off of this, and will only get worse if you try to resist them. A better plan is to accept that you are having a panic attack and let it take you over, just for a moment.
    • W: Watch the anxiety. Try to watch the anxiety from outside your body, in that you are aware that it is happening and paying attention to the various feelings your body is going through. This stops the panic attack from being quite as immersive at the time.
    • A: Act normal. If you cannot feel ‘normal,’ then the next best thing is to act it, so that people on the outside don’t know that you are having a panic attack. Much like smiling when you feel sad, acting normal may work to make you feel normal.
    • R: Repeat. Repeat the first three steps a couple of times to see if you can bring the panic down. You should find that on your second or third try, the panic attack has started to fade a little.
    • E: Expect the situation to abate. If you expect that this method will work, then you are far more likely to see signs of the panic attack fading much faster.
