How do u get rid of anxiety attacks?

Are you tired of feeling like a chicken with its head cut off every time an anxiety attack hits? Do your palms sweat so much that they could probably irrigate a small farm in the middle of nowhere? Well, fear not! This comprehensive (and definitely not scary) guide will provide some tips and tricks on how to deal with those pesky anxiety attacks.

What is an Anxiety Attack?

Before we dive into the nitty-gritty stuff, let’s get one thing straight. What actually is an anxiety attack? Simply put, it’s when your brain goes haywire and orders your body to release stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline at inappropriate times. These hormones then trigger physical symptoms such as increased heart rate, sweating, trembling, chest tightness or pain etc. Fun times!

The worst part about it all is that nobody really knows why exactly these types of things happen. But hey! Scientists are still trying to understand black holes too – so at least we’re in good company.

The Importance of Diagnosis

If you feel like you’ve been experiencing a lot more intense periods of heightened emotions lately after any type of stimulus…maybe it would be best to diagnose/triage yourself first before coming up with ways to solve your entire problem from scratch. Some mental health practitioners believe that merely understanding this condition can help sufferers cope better during subsequent episodes (or maybe they just call themselves “mental” health practitioners because they loathe being classified under podiatrists). If you think this might be something worth doing specific research on since everyone has unique circumstances/experiences and therefore have varying measures towards prevention; simply contacting below resources:

Checking Out Your Local Doctor

First off, there’s nothing shameful about seeking out professional help for an issue/situation pertaining specifically toward medical issues! Have no fear stepping into Dr Vaderhoosen’s office or making a quick virtual call/click, and simply explaining your symptoms might be enough for the doctor to deduce whether it is indeed anxiety you’re dealing with. Trust us, if anyone has seen an array of odd physical manifestations, it’d probably be them.

The World-Wide-Web

If heading into any doctor’s office makes you quiver like a chihuahua on caffeine (which could potentially lead to quite the horror show during these examinations), then hopping online might prove just as helpful -(Though do bear in mind that not all information one stumbles upon can be relied on/accepted at face value). Several self-assessing tests/”diagnoses” are available too which could help provide minimal insight prior to holding down the fort in any medical facility – this ‘self-triage mode’ method would serve best just as merely initial inputs for future steps versus possibly misleading oneself based off Google searches (We don’t need a repeat here).

Coping Strategies

Now that we’ve established what exactly an anxiety attack is…it’s high time we dive into how we can deal with these pesky fellows. While there isn’t really one “silver bullet” solution when it comes to managing anxiety attacks – below are some tips and tricks that may come in handy:

Mindfulness-Based Techniques:

Known popularly among folks focused more towards spiritual avenues rather than medication grounds; mindfulness-based technique primarily revolves around quietening the mind through acknowledging present feelings within both body/mind/circumstance contextually whilst simultaneously letting go & adopting acceptance/kindness — knowing you have solutions/addressed outcomes from previous troubles/happenings That may also include taking action today instead of being anxious about tomorrow (Remember: It’s PRESENT thoughts which count) … Interesting huh?

Another example includes engaging solely on tasks occurring currently like focusing wholly-beingedly unto an entire cup of tea – visualizing and contrasting neighboring sounds/senses/area vibes without your mind wandering off to that midnight pizza-lonesomeness or the fear of public speaking type doubts. Mindfulness presents itself as a highly subjective term with numerous interpretations, but doing research on this may prove useful (as having insight/tools can really amp up confidence in tackling it all)!

Deep Breathing:

Deep breathing: It’s simple yet effective. This technique requires you to focus solely on your breaths, counting each inhale or exhale mentally for some time until the focus shifts elsewhere smoothly”““ /OR creating blank space between thoughts will work at making one feel more relaxed and centered . Whenever these symptoms begin(e.g sweating heavily/palms getting cold) slowly regulate & breathe calmly through nose/in mouth/out mouth via slow/long purrs focusing mainly on belly expansions instead of shallow chest pumps while sitting down(And if standing is tolerable)! Maybe focus it all around what sensations are occurring within the present moment.


E/xercise: Few things release tension more than breaking into a good sweat! Engaging in aerobic exercise like running typically increases release of endorphins which counteracts low moods/improves emotional well-being by keeping our brain focused…so technically working out IS also mental self-care despite pains associated with muscle build-ups/motivation deficits facing anyone starting new. Whether performing routines at home/gym OR just taking walks outside regularly – please do whatever physical workouts gets you pumped up because results are nothing short of rewarding physically/emotionally utilizing fitness endocrine secretions released during routines. Looking good > feeling good; am I right?

AND THAT’S IT FOLKS – five simple tips/tricks that will hopefully help alleviate those pesky anxiety attacks whenever they rear their ugly heads. Now go forth confidently knowing there’s always something(s)/someone worth confiding into when these moments occur in life!
