HOW TO SURVIVE YOUR NEXT PANIC ATTACK BY BREATHING

If you’ve ever had panic attacks, you’ll know that they come with a wide range of symptoms.

All of them are distressing and can have a detrimental impact on how you live your life, possibly even prompting you to worry about when your next panic attack will strike.

You can significantly reduce the severity of your panic attacks by learning to control your breathing, and with enough time and practice, you may even be able to completely stop them.

It may be difficult to breathe into your panic attack at first. It’s important to practice these breathing techniques so that they become second nature to you.

Breathing exercises are a simple yet effective method of dealing with panic episodes.

Breathing from the diaphragm is a skill that can be learned.

You should learn to breathe via your diaphragm. Once you’ve mastered this technique, it will become second nature to you.

At first, it may appear to be an unusual way to breathe. If you stick with it, you’ll see some favorable outcomes quite quickly.

Breathing through the diaphragm is the most natural way to breathe. You used it as a baby, but as you’ve grown older, you’ve learned to breathe in other, less natural ways. It’s time to brush up on your skills!

Place one hand on your abdomen and the other on your chest (the area of your body between your chest and your thigh). As you begin to breathe, your chest should remain motionless and just move slightly as you inhale.

Instead, let the air you’re inhaling in expand your stomach.

Slowly begin to exhale after you’ve taken a deep breath in. As you exhale, imagine that all of the air has left your body.

The goal of this approach is to make your breathing slower. You should be taking roughly six breaths per minute after a few deep breaths.

There are probably a lot less than the short breaths you’re taking right now.

ABOUT ME


Hi, I'm Laura and welcome to my blog.

I've been interested in the human mind since I was a child and that's the reason why I became a psychologist. I thought I had everything figured out, but it turned out I was suffering from anxiety for at least ten years without even noticing it. With the help of what I already knew, and some of my friends/colleagues, I compiled a list of articles that helped me go through my anxiety and get to the other side of the tunnel.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you find something to help you along the way.

Laura
