Anxiety or panic attacks are becoming more and more frequent and common among youths. I suffered from these panic attacks for a long time and which seemingly has intensified over the years. But luckily, there’s always a solution for everything.
I’ve been fighting panic attacks for three years now, but luckily i tried some techniques that helped me cope with them throughout the years and lessen their intensity thank God.
This is really obvious, but for me, breathing exercises were my go-to-deal-with-anxiety-attack. It’s so simple:
Breathe in, Hold for 5 seconds, release. Repeat until you feel calm.
Try to meditate on the spot
Try mindfulness meditate on the spot, focus on being intensely aware of what you’re sensing and feeling in the moment, without interpretation or judgment.
Go to your Happy Place.
Everyone has a happy place, something you feel a good happy feeling in. Something that makes you feel at ease and relaxed.
Focus on an object
Try to focus on something stable and fix around you in the room.
Close your eyes
Some people get stimulated by triggers around them. Closing your eyes will help you reduce the stimuli.
Those are some of my favorite techniques, feel free to share some of yours too in the comments!
