According to research, it has been found that almost everyone experiences a panic or anxiety attack at least once in their entire lifetime. However, people who are always anxious are more likely to experience anxiety attacks often. Around 3% of people in the whole population are known to develop PAD (Panic Attack Disorder). This is when anxiety attacks become a major problem in life as it hinders the normal lifestyle of a person.
Anxiety attacks are caused due to various reasons. However, two of the main causes of anxiety attacks are fear and stress. High-stress levels and fear can prove to be deadly for a person. Speaking of which, let’s take a look into some of the tips which can help you deal with anxiety attacks.
Ways To Deal With Anxiety Attacks:
Here are a few tips that can help you deal with or prevent anxiety attacks better.
With the help of the mentioned tips, you can deal with your panic or anxiety attacks better. However, if you are a regular victim of anxiety attacks, you should consult a professional in that matter.
I think the first thing to do is calm down and do whatever it takes to calm down - well apart from using drugs and alcohol because this never helps.
Secondly, look for reasons for the anxiety attack. Don't look externally. There'll always be something out there to get a panic attack about. Only think about war, racism, poverty, child abuse and plastic polluting oceans. But also think how people will never be able to change any of that if they're busy dealing with panic attacks all the time.
Instead, look within yourself. Investigate, listen to your feelings, get this panic feeling to the light and look carefully. Ask yourself - why do I feel that way? What's inside me that makes me feel that way? Obviously, any panic attack will be based on fear. Sometimes, it's an obvious fear, like fear of speaking publicly. Sometimes, it's an unreasonable fear like fear of people wearing red socks. And sometimes, it's so well hidden that it's not immediately obvious what's the fear about.
But keep looking at it. Look at the thoughts that accompany the fear. Start working on replacing these thoughts - one by one, day after day. Thoughts affect emotions in the longer run, and emotions affect our behavior. If you start replacing your thoughts with more positive ones, that will eventually change your behavior and therefore will change the results you're getting, eg your life. And better results in life will start subtly changing your beliefs and thoughts, thus reinforcing your positive thoughts, emotions and behavior.
