Ways That You Can Handle an Anxiety Attack | How to Stop a Anxiety Attack
For a person that has never experienced an anxiety attack, they
can be seen as an abnormal and irrational panic over trivial things
or accidents or for no reason at all.

As we have talked about before, attacks usually occur without
warning and a person can simply burst into fear.

Certain triggers can set off an anxiety attack. For instance, getting
stuck in an elevator, being called to speak in class or present a
presentation at work, but in other cases attacks come out of the
blue.

An anxiety attack is disproportionate reaction to the situation or
problem at hand, leaving the person excessively fearful, or
sometimes incapacitated, which affects life, relationships,
happiness and peace of mind.

A person undergoing an episode of anxiety can exhibit several
symptoms at varying degrees during and attack.

As we know these attacks usually peak within 10 minutes and
rarely last for about a half an hour. But during that time, a person
can totally lose control of themselves and show multiple symptoms

To handle an attack, a person must:

First try to relax.

Although it is often impossible to relax during an attack, it
is very crucial not to submit to the emotion. Deep breathing helps.
It calms and relaxes your mind and body.

During an anxiety attack, focus your breathing to slow down your
heartbeat. That also diverts your attention from the attack which
helps you recover faster. Take some time and practice deep
breathing exercises even if you are not stressed or feel anxious.

Think positively.

Again, during an anxiety attack, it is often impossible to relax and
calm yourself, but you have to be in control. Do your best to push
positive thoughts to your head.

Don’t anticipate that something bad will happen because in
reality, there isn’t. Keep in mind that the more you think negatively,
the more anxious and panicky it is going to be.

Keep reminding yourself that it will be over soon.

And it will. Anxiety attacks only last for a short time, so there is no
reason for you to think and feel that your world is over. You don’t
have to be mindful of the time. You don’t even have to count every
minute that passed. What you should be doing is be conscious
that it will not going to last forever.

Start an exercise program.

I am sure that you are aware that exercise has lots of benefits for
both to the body and the mind. It is also a great stress buster and
anxiety reliever. Experts agree that as little as 30 minutes of
exercise, 3 to 5 times a week is enough to lower the level of stress
and reduce the chances of having episodes of anxiety attacks.

Talk to someone you trust.

It can be your friend, your spouse, a relative or a therapist. Often,
having someone who listens and understands what a person is
going through will make a lot of difference.
