To put it in the words of Corrie Ten Bloom ,”Worrying doesn’t empty tomorrow of its sorrows ; it empties today of its strengths.” Anxiety is a common phenomenon in our lives but it can become a problem for many if it goes out of hands. The NIMH states that 31.1% of the US adults will experience an anxiety disorder at some point in their lives. We hereby seek to address this problem in the following analysis and reiterate our belief that this is a controllable problem.
Watch your Breath
Try to slow down your breathing. Research has it that anxiety attacks feature an erratic breathing pattern in most individuals which restricts proper blood flow to the brain and this in return creates panic. Practicing belly breathing and other guided meditations can give immediate relief in such situations.
Counter Negative Thoughts
It is advisable to pen the thoughts that come during such attacks on a paper. The mind goes incoherent and thoughts get disorientated. You will find them unreasonable on paper.
Fears can get the better of you if not confronted. Studies have shown that most people are scared to face their fears and live miserably. There are proven methods to face it and get rid of them.
Look for a Specialist
Counselling has been a time tested remedy to deal with anxiety and phobias. Seek help when you need one and follow the medical advice in conjunction with meditation and herbal solutions, and your situation will improve.
Following the above steps can bring a degree of comfort in the event of an anxiety attack. Homeopathy is an underrated form of medicine but can offer thorough healing with the likes of Bach Flower Remedies and can be given a try.

“Anxiety can be replaced only by the freedom whose harsh requirements are its cause. Being free requires us to release the brakes that anxiety represents in order to accept and appropriate our proper spiritual fulfillment or perhaps even to recognize, if that is what we in the end believe, that no such prospect is in store.”
― Søren Kierkegaard
