Usually we usually take anxiety attacks as a transient topic, a transition issue that lasts a few seconds in our daily routine. But those few seconds affect our day, our day and it is better to know how to face them.
Anxiety attacks usually manifest in different ways in different people. Some may be found in the presence of physical symptoms, including shaking, feeling disorientated, nausea, rapid, irregular heartbeats, dry mouth, breathlessness, sweating and dizziness.
Although such symptoms do not last more than 10 minutes, they may last a little longer than normal and may last up to twice as long.
Anxiety is a monster that can be frightened, diminished, if you know how to fight it and even if you suffer it, others around you will not realize that you are suffering from an attack. Before anxiety can control you, be alert.
1.Face and confront
The main component of panic attacks are almost always anxiety problems and, as we said before, it is best to attack the monster that comes over us so that it does not dominate us.
Believing that we distract ourselves to avoid panic is one of the worst things we can do because the anxiety is going to be kept there after the distraction. Continuing our routine will do that, although anxiety is your partner does not have to be a nuisance in your routine.
2. Just breathe
As I would say the song by Pearl Jam vocalist Eddie Vedder, Just Breathe. People will wonder what this has to do with anxiety and the truth is that too. Relaxation is vital for our body but above all has a chemical response.
When we enter an anxiety attack we begin to hyperventilate and that causes that we put too much dioxide and inhale much oxygen, which is not well. We think that we are not getting much oxygen, which forces us to breathe more, making the anxiety attacks more intense.
With a simple sign we can make that uncomfortable moment be removed from our body.
- Inhale through the nose for five seconds
- Hold for two seconds
- Exhale through the mouth for seven seconds
3. Take care of what you eat
Knowing what you eat and even more, improving it, is necessary for people suffering with constant panic attacks. If we see who suffer from this in the offices, are those people who consume an exacerbated degree of caffeine because it is a vicious circle. As soon as your diet improves, the more you are healthy. Add to it alcoholic beverages or tobacco, a time bomb.
Check if your meals are lacking: Magnesium, vitamin B12, vitamin B1 The absence of all of them can make people more prone to anxiety.
4. Run, Forrest, Run
