Oh another good method I use and this one works EVERY time is. when you feel your going to freak out and have a full blown panic attack, let it come.
I know for me, I feel total relief after I have the panic attack, like the storm that comes in and when it passes, it's calm again
The anxiety and fear of the attack is actually 100 x worse than the actually panic attack. So I think to myself when the panic swells, I think "Ok, I'm done, I'm fed up of this feeling, bring it on. bring on the attack and get it done and over with so I can go about
the rest of my drive, work, shopping etc"
When you ALLOW the panic attack to come and don't resist, it's like the panic just leaves your body. Resist and it persists.
Or something else that works for me, well as we all know us people with anxiety believe we are the center of everyone elses universe. Like everyone MUST be staring at us. Well when you're in a situation in public where you feel panic, look people in the face (eyes), others turn away or never even look at you, why cause everyone else has their own story and no one gives a rats butt who we are and what we're doing.
I know for me, I never fcous on others when I'm out. No really gives a hoot about
what we're doing!
Now having said this, it's tough to control anxiety if the body has other stimulants to contend with like sugars, caffeine and processed foods.
I know many disbelieve intake has little to do with it, but everything we put in our body effects our chemicals.
eat well, sleep well and don't give anyone else control your world
The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong in the broken places
