Stopping Panic Attacks - Free Ways To Deal With Your Panic Attack Right Now
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Stopping panic attacks does not always require the use of medications, sometimes using simple and free methods can do the trick depending on the severity of the attacks you experience. Below you will discover a few free ways you can tackle the attacks that are plaguing you.

1. Take a Deep Breath: A single breath can be one of the most powerful things for your body and mind. It can interrupt your thoughts and stop many of your symptoms in their tracks. When you begin to feel a panic attack coming on, stop and take a deep breath, take several if you need to. Your panic attack might still hit you, but taking these breathes can lessen the severity of the attack.

2. Listen to Calm Music: Sometimes when you are experiencing anxiety and panic, simply listening to some calm music can be enough to distract your mind from what it thinks is a threat. Whether this is flying on a plane, riding in car or perhaps another scenario where you experience attacks. Make it a point to have music with you so when an attack hits you can listen to some soothing tunes.

3. Accept What You Feel: It may sound absurd at first, but after you have tried this method a few times you'll see that accepting rather than fighting the panic attack can have a profound effect on you. You will likely still experience a panic attack, but by accepting it the severity will decrease each time. You'll feel more in control and once you realize that the panic attack can't hurt you, you won't worry about having them as much and if and when they do occur you'll know that you are in control; you are no longer controlled by your anxiety.

In the article above we discussed stopping panic attacks with a few free ways you can employ right now. The first and probably most effective is simply by taking a few deep breaths when you feel a panic attack coming on. Most people forget to breathe properly, we take shallow breaths and not only do we need more, but consciously taking a deep breath makes your mind stop. Another method is to listen to calm music and the last is to accept what you feel. Acceptance rather than fighting in combination with the other two can be powerful tools you can use to stop your panic attacks now.
