Hope all folks here are doing ok but thought of writing this to help friends like me suffering everyday with anxiety /panic attacks-
#1 Eat small meals every 3 hrs to avoid hunger pangs and eat atleast 2 proper meals in a day including little carbs to maintain healthy BP and BS ,this makes your brain cells avoid a dip .
#2 Try to walk everyday-its extremely good distraction.
#3 get a nap if feel sleepy ,don't feel guilty.
#4 be social ,you do not need a lots of friends just 1 or 2 is enough whom you can talk to or post here.
#5Write your feelings in a journal ,any emotions or how you feel ,it will keep you informed about
your inner emotions.
#6Do not feel bad if dosage is adjusted by doc ,you definately need to follow advice of doc.
#7 T ry to avoid any tv program such as news or any movie that triggers strong emotions and makes you upset.
#8 dress up even if you just be gonna home even ,it uplifts mood for sure.
#9 Have a sleep schedule even if retired.
#10 Have just one hobby to keep mind busy or just make you happy .
Friends you can add more ......I just made this list to remind myself everyday that small steps like these make me have less anxiety attacks and keep them in track or to just avoid them simply.
going in nature (not hiking though) it can be your backyard or balcony and watch birds or plants is enough to distract me at times .
lets conquer this with things we can share with each other.
