Overcoming Panic Attacks is All in the Mind

 

It seems impossible to live life normally when one suffers from an anxiety disorder. However, overcoming panic attacks can be done if one only has faith in himself that he CAN stop anxiety attacks on his own.
 
By observing other people who have anxiety disorders, one could see that they tend to avoid other people, as well as avoid going out or travelling. The reason for this is that they fear triggering another panic attack.
 
Well, if you want to stop anxiety attacks, you had better learn to face your fears. And the good news about this is that there are many methods available today that can help you in overcoming panic attacks and freeing yourself from your invisible prison.
 
If you are thinking anti-anxiety drugs to do the trick, that is wrong. It is a perfectly natural course of action to consider, though. As human beings, we have become used to the medication method as a way to cure ourselves of any illness or malady.
 
For example, whenever we are confronted with a situation we are afraid of or unsure of, we become nervous and uncomfortable. But to those with anxiety disorders, these normal physiological and mental reactions are over amplified, and tend to go on overdrive. 
 
The result is a panic attack.
 
We normally reach for medicines then to combat these symptoms. We treat the symptoms, but fail to treat the real cause of the problem.
 
It is important to point out here that the prolonged intake of anti-anxiety drugs almost always have side effects, too. These side effects can range anywhere from weight gain to dizziness or nausea to more serious physical and mental conditions.
 
The key to overcoming panic attacks is to accept the fact that you have anxiety disorder, and that because you have this ailment, you would tend to perceive certain stimuli and situations as a threat to you.
 
By virtue of perceiving such a threat, your mind and body would then react to it in the manner that causes you to have a racing heartbeat, difficulty breathing, and sweating profusely.
 
All that are just symptoms, and taking drugs to combat them misses the real culprit of your ailment—fear.
 
If you want to stop anxiety attacks effectively, you have to learn to combat the fear. Accept that all the other reactions (sweating, nausea, increased heartbeat, etc.) are just by-products of the real problem.
 
Once you are able to do that, you can then start training your mind not to panic whenever you start palpitating or breathing hard.
 
Overcoming panic attacks is all in the mind. That is why if you want to stop anxiety attacks altogether, you do not need drugs. You just need some understanding of what anxiety is and some will power.
