You could visit a physician who might prescribe medication. This might be necessary for short term relief, but wont deal with the underlying problem.
A long period of weeks, months or even years with a psychiatrist is another way to stop panic attacks.
Maybe some sessions with a cognitive therapist is the key. But before you spend the time and money, you might be relieved to find there is first aid for your panic attacks and anxiety.
Finding relief from that constant feeling of unease, which can build to a full blown panic attack, once your particular tipping point has been reached, might be just a matter of doing things differently.
If you can relate to this short video, then please read on.
Your panic and negative reaction to certain stimuli could be a conditioned reflex brought about by a childhood trauma which is repeated in a vicious cycle as you plod along in the same old ways. You might think you are crazy and that nobody else feels as bad as you. But rest assured, you have plenty of company, with some studies estimating that panic attacks affect around 15% of the population. Do the maths based on your community and you will quickly find that there are huge numbers of seemingly ordinary everyday folks looking tostop panic attacks. Maybe they live next door. What happened to you in the past was probably horrible and distressing, and very real, even though you might not even consciously recollect it. But like the saying goes, “The past is a different place, they do things differently there.” Change your behaviour in the present in order to prevent an attack of disabling nerves in the future. In other words, shift the focus of your brain’s activity away from the sub-conscious to the conscious. Regain control and reclaim a calm life. Don’t fall into the trap of over analyzing your depression or stress levels. It is not just thinking differently that can stop panic attacks and kickstart your stalled life. Changing your physical activities and the way you go about things can bounce you out of that rut. Just find another way to be different, no matter how modest, no matter how silly your first attempts might seem to others.
- Tie your shoe laces in a new way.
- Go for a short walk before your usual morning routine.
- Smile, and say hi to the first person you encounter on that walk.
- Have something completely different for breakfast.
- At work or school say howdy to someone you would not normally talk to.
- If you are usually a tense tightwad, spend some money on a treat for yourself.
- Be frivolous, buy yourself a novel and lose yourself in it.
- If you are too serious about yourself, sing something stupid in the shower.
- Tell your problems to your dog or cat.
- Set your alarm clock for a different time tomorrow.
That list might seem a little simple, even stupid, but, hey! you can have fun (remember that F.U.N. word) and add a lot more. It does not matter how weird the little changes seem to others because you are doing this for yourself, to be free from panic attacks and anxiety. Every little change will assist to break your negative pattern and eventually help to lift you from a state of constant anxiety as you anticipate another panic attack. Medication can prove a short-term bandaid for anxiety and generally comes with some side effects. Therapy and meditation can work wonders, but take time to become effective. Self help might be all that you need, but there is a cost-effective way to stop panic attacks which provides a natural long-term solution.
A man who has helped many in dealing with panic and anxiety attacks is Barry McDonagh. Read what he has to say about deflecting your thoughts away from your problem.
Why Distraction Helps Ease Anxiety
In order to quickly move away from generalized anxiety you need to throw yourself 100% into life.
What is needed is to engage regularly in an activity that stimulates you, and holds your complete attention, something in which you can become completely absorbed.
Something that distracts you is a very valuable tool in taking your attention away from the uncomfortable sensation of anxiety that may be lingering in your body.
You see almost everyone with anxiety finds themselves getting a bit obsessed about how they feel at any given moment. The less preoccupied the person is, the more time there is to obsess over anxious sensations.
I am sure you have noticed that when you are doing something you enjoy or that really holds your attention, the less you ‘check in’ to measure your anxiety level.
Quite simply, the more you engage with life the less stagnant and anxious you will feel.
Some of the possible activities that interest you could be:
Gardening, playing a musical instrument, sport, or simply having a good conversation with a friend. The idea here is to find something that you can repeat on a regular basis that you enjoy doing or that at very least holds your attention.
If you find you have too much time on your hands and are having problems coming up with something you could do then I recommend you volunteer in a local voluntary scheme. It could be anything from helping the elderly, looking after animals or environmental conservation.
If you can spare even one or two hours a week for such work, not only will you feel your self-esteem improve, but it will help shake off any lingering feelings of isolation or loneliness which are so often accompanied by anxiety.
One thing you can be certain of is that there is some organization near you crying out for a volunteer just like you to assist them with their work.
The art of distraction has always been used to help people refocus and avoid concentrating on whatever physical or emotional discomfort the person is going through. It may just be the caring friend who invites their recently heart broken roommate out on the town to have some fun.
Dentists and doctors use distraction techniques frequently to distract the patient from a physical discomfort they may be experiencing, by giving them something else to focus on (usually the bill).
The purpose of using distraction, for people who want to live anxiety free, is to have new experiences that take the person’s mind off the anxious feelings they have been experiencing.
If you imagine that all the fearful anxious thoughts that go through your mind are like a roll of film being run through a film projector (your mind) and out into your life. Concentrating on some activity immediately cuts the film and brings you directly into the here and now.
When you are fully engaged with life there is no room for any anxiety disorder. This mental space you create enables both your body and mind time to become less sensitized to the anxiety.
By doing something you enjoy and feel you are good at, helps build new competencies. You are saying to yourself that the anxiety path is not one you want to travel down anymore and that you will put your focus elsewhere.
The more time you give to following these rewarding pursuits, the easier it is for your body to relax and return to a natural state of peace.
Combine this with my ONE MOVE technique and people often look back weeks later and wonder if it was really them who was so anxious all the time. Note, it normally takes a few weeks to reduce feelings of general anxiety. That is the standard amount of time to come back to feeling more yourself.

Hi there. Just a quick note to say thank-you. I’ve struggled with panic attacks for the past 31 years. I’m very happy that I kept looking! More than happy actually – my life is changing daily as it all comes back together again.
Thanks again, R Edington
“Thank you, I just read this book and already I feel more confident. I’ve read and bought other panic solutions and this one finally taught me how to accept the anxiety and panic in a way I could understand. I wish I’d known about this when I was a teen-ager. Anyway I feel better just knowing about this technique. Thank you again for caring about people.
P.S. I can’t believe this valuable information costs so little, I bought one program for almost $300.00
