No one knows what it feels like to be in an anxiety attack unless you have experienced them yourself.  It is sometimes brought on by something that other people may perceive as ordinary and non threatening and this also is stressful for the person who is panicking that others just dismiss their distress.

The best thing you can do to prevent a panic attack is to keep your stress levels down.  Read some of the other posts that will give you some ideas how to do this.  But sometimes it just comes out of the blue, or so you think.  For me when I start talking fast I know my stress levels are escalating.  When I am closer to a panic attack I can get tingling in my fingers which means I am over breathing.  These signs help me in the way that I can then recognize what is happening to me and do something about it before I get to have a panic attack.5 steps out of the black hole of panic

This is also a time when you could listen to your music, talk a walk, do a bit of meditation or just chill out doing something you love to do.  Get your mind to do something besides concentrating on the ‘thing’ that is getting you stressed.

I have written a book in Kindle format that can also be read on your computer, iPad and other devices with a free app you can download.  Its cheap as chips so why not download it now from Amazon. If you get panic attacks then you have to grab this book.  It will help you when you most need it.

Try some of these ways to de-stress:

Yoga is a good activity that can quiet your mind. Yoga uses progressive muscle relaxation as a relaxation method.

Eating comfort foods
Chocolate contains flavanols which may increase blood flow to the brain but choose dark chocolate for its extra antioxidant properties.

Creative activity
If you draw, paint, cook, knit, weave, sculpt, potter, or some other activity then go and do it.

Reading as a diversion
Books can take you to another place, a place where you can forget your worries for awhile. Don’t have the time for books then pick up an interesting magazine and read a few articles.

Get out a pen and paper and start writing out your thoughts. Don’t try and dwell too much on what you are writing and think about solutions.

Laughing can reduce stress instantly.  Watch a comedy on TV or video, watch a funny video clip on YouTube or think of the funniest thing that has happened to you in the past and relive it.

How to reduce stress in your life June 21, 2008

Reduce the stress

Reduce the stress

Some stress is necessary in our lives but most often we suffer from too much stress. Our life moves in the fast lane and we get dragged along. I know by the end of the week Im pretty frazzled.  What I need was to reduce stress in my life!

I have found a few things that help me combat this. I try and have some time each day where I sit or lie down and just wind down although during the week that is usually when I settle down to go to bed as my time is more limited. I also like to relax and meditate when I can even if its for 1/2 hour and I seem lately to be able to manage every other day for that. Eating properly is also very important to reduce stress and in keeping your nerves fed and I also take a multi B vitamin.

I also found recently an online store that sells audio files called binaural beats that help you to sleep, relax, lose weight etc. The store has been around for around 7 years so they are an established business although I had never heard of them before. I found this site as I was looking for ways to learn to relax and new easier ways to help me meditate. I like audio files because I can download them to my mp3 player and listen to them when I want. The website is called The Unexplainable Store and you can even download a free sample to try.

I wasnt sure what they were all about at first because I had never heard of binaural beats but it works when two different frequencies of audio waves are played at the same time with a frequency in each ear through stereo headphones.

My favorites recordings are the stress release and weight loss recordings. The sounds I love listening to are the sounds of the forest and waterfalls to help put me into a deep relaxed state and it really worked for me even from the first time. Its hard to explain but its like I felt a vibrational feeling come over me. See Im not explaining myself very well so maybe that is where the store got its name. For more information why not go and see for yourself at The Unexplainable Store and tell me what you think.

I have found from my own experience that relaxation audio music and guided meditation tapes are the methods that give me the best results. They help my muscles relax and it takes me away from your everyday worries for at least a little while and unlike taking pharmaceutical drugs to get you to the same state they have no side affects, addiction or other risks.

Try and take some time out for yourself this week and remember you need to work at keeping your stress levels down on a regular basis so you don’t get to the situation where you are really stressed out.
