You Can Deal With Your Panic Attacks

Bombs in the Dark

"I was on the train and there was a sudden jolt forward … There was a really hard banging from the carriage next door to us after the explosion – that’s where it happened. There was a fire beside me. I saw flames outside on the window of my carriage … I saw bodies. I think some people may have died."
– Sarah Reid, the tube at Liverpool Street

Many stories have emerged from London of people coming out of themselves to help each other, amidst the panic of the bombs. I’ve felt a real sense of camaraderie, where normally we would expect just anonymous faces in the crowd.

It is this collective spirit that gives me hope. In times of adversity, we see how people can empathise and care for each other. Let us hold onto this spirit in the coming days, as the nine-to-five slog struggles to re-establish itself as the norm.

The determination of Londoners to join together and get on with their lives has been widely noted and praised. A perfect demonstration of the British "stiff upper-lip" that kept us level-headed during the turmoil of the Blitz and a long history of invasion.

But amidst our resolve to resume life as normal, let us not lose the opportunity to understand why this has happened. Let us not blindly absolve our responsibilities to the powers-that-be. They have played their part in creating this. Their greedy and divisive aims must be exposed and challenged – and at the same time, the selfish lie of the terorrists’ dogma must be laid bare and crushed.

We have fanatics on both sides. May we hold dear to our heart-felt, human values and fight the vested interests on all sides until the true spirit of humanity is established.

"However dense the cimmerian darkness may be, the crimson dawn must follow. The fiends of hell may burst out in loud laughter, but all must fade in the void with the sunrise…

Those who love humanity and those who desire the welfare of living beings should be vigorously active from this very moment, after shaking off all lethargy and sloth, so that the most auspicious hour arrives at the earliest."
Shrii Shrii Anandamurti, New Year’s Day, 1971


It is really important for your health and well-being to treat your panic attacks. Read on for some panic attack treatments that could work for you.

Knowing why a panic attack is happening is key to being able to manage it successfully. Figure out what the issue is, and address it immediately. Share with them why you asked this question.

If you are a panic attack sufferer, you should not want to be alone. Spend as much time as you can with people who have positive attitudes. Their energy will make you happier and support you during hard times. Try to reconnect with family and friends as often as possible!

An important tip for anyone suffering from panic attacks is to remain conscious of what is actually happening when an attack strikes. You should keep in mind that you are feeling a momentary nervous system overload; you are not in any physical danger. Doing this will help keep the episode in proper perspective, and help bring about a quicker resolution. It may be terrible, and this advice isn’t meant to treat it as though it is a game. If you use this way of thinking, though, you will be able to end some of your panicky feelings.

Take slow, deep breaths in order to pass through the attack. Not only does deep breathing keep your mind occupied and relaxed, it also lowers blood pressure and pulse, boosts circulation and eases tension.

If you are the type of person who experiences recurrent panic attacks, you must focus on getting adequate rest. If you are overly tired, your mind will not be functioning at optimum levels. When the mind isn’t calm, the incidents of panic attacks increase. Talk to your doctor if you feel sleep could be an issue.

People who experience recurrent panic attacks should avoid drinking excessive amounts of alcoholic beverages. This is true because it negatively alters your mood. As a depressant, alcohol causes more problems. When mixed with a panic attack it can become dangerous, even deadly. Also if the medications you take for anxiety attacks mix with the alcohol, you could experience major problems.

When faced with the stifling fear of panic, try asking yourself if there is actually something to really be afraid of around you. For instance, can anyone in your environment hurt you? Just sit down, relax, and watch as stress goes away.

By paying attention to the rate of your breathing, you can better cope with your panic attack. If you can take control of your breathing, you can lessen the intensity of your attack. You can gain control fairly easily by breathing deeply and evenly.

To maximize the effectiveness of breathing exercises during your panic attack, pay more attention to how your exhale than how you inhale. Many people take in fast, sharp breaths during an attack; this is fine. The important thing is to try to hold in each breath and then slowly exhale.

You can make an attempt to work yourself right out of having a panic attack. Thoughts and feelings don’t necessarily have to determine behavior. Change your behavior to reflect the exact opposite of whatever your gut is telling you. Understand that your feelings should not control what you do.

Dealing with panic attacks might take you a lot of effort, but you will be happy with the results. Keep in mind that your stress doesn’t have to be damaging to you. Do the right thing yourself by researching methods to relieve stress and asking your doctor for advice. You are on the right track if you apply the advice found above.
