Nobody needs to be informed how hectic and frenzied our world is, currently. But we should not be amazed by this if you are extremely busy with your job and possibly a family; not to mention the global economy with all the concerns. There is nothing abnormal to think that our current times are far too too much to handle for many people. There are millions of individuals who suffer through panic attacks, and who really can blame them looking at everything. Even in simple societies there are stress levels associated with the normal functions of living. The thing to keep in mind about panic attacks is there are distinct kinds, and most people probably have no earthly idea as to what they are.
Our brains are so incredibly intricate, and that is a critical aspect when you are talking about panic attacks. The critical understanding comes with recognizing that the way your body reacts to stress is viewed in a specific way by your brain. At that point, it is the mind that basically causes the body to further react in particular ways. Fast breathing in response to anxiety occurs with a lot of people with genuine panic attack. Furthermore, another fairly typical symptom consists of becoming very hot or even cold, and that can be localized to certain parts of the body. Another very important factor is in general the mind is also developing a fear reaction because the person does not recognize or understand what is occurring. It is a scenario that can quickly get out of control when instinctual reactions occur – the flight or fright effect.
One of the most important measures any person can take, if they are mindful, is to realize what is happening within them. What needs to happen next is to employ relaxation approaches to help your body. Gaining influence over breathing is extremely critical; so try to breath deeply and in a relaxed manner. But don’t over-do the inhaling and exhaling. When you inhale, do not hold the breath and refrain from exerting a lot of pressure on your lungs. Basically be positive you do not cause any force with your breathing. This basic and well known strategy will go far to help reduce the overall panic feeling and will calm down your body.
Try to visualize something recognizable that is totally relaxing and positive. If it feels at ease, then gently close your eyes and do this while visualizing. Sitting relaxed for a couple of minutes while deeply breathing and visualizing something quite relaxing will help. This kind of imaging exercise will even help you to loosen up. In addition, when you are breathing in, then carefully instruct your body to relax and feel soothed. It is best to use just one or two words max.
In fact, panic attacks affect millions of people around the world, and that is just the numbers that are conservatively projected. Just think about all the people who live with them and never talk to their doctor about it. It could be due to the natural disposition to view life as uncommonly full of tension and stress.
David Carbonell outlines such cognitive behavioral methods as diaphragmatic breathing, progressive exposure, desensitization, relaxation, keeping a panic diary, and much more. He shows how to cultivate a personal attitude that facilitates solutions rather than placing blame.
He clearly explains how the very nature of panic leads people into a chronic cycle of anticipation, panic, and helplessness, and details how to overcome this pattern with innovative responses and an attitude of acceptance. Charts, worksheets, and program outlines help point the way through the workbook and on to recovery.
What you may not realize is that these fears are almost never based on reality. Anxiety is one of the world’s oldest cons. When you’re anxious, you’re actually fooling yourself. You are telling yourself things that simply aren’t true. See if you can recognize yourself in any of these distortions:
All-or-Nothing Thinking: “My mind will go blank when I give my presentation at work, and everyone will think I’m an idiot.”
Fortune Telling: “I just know I’ll freeze up and blow it when I take my test.”
Mind Reading: “Everyone at this party can see how nervous I am.”
Magnification: “Flying is so dangerous. I think this plane is going to crash!”
Should Statements: “I shouldn’t be so anxious and insecure. Other people don’t feel this way.”
Emotional Reasoning: “I feel like I’m on the verge of cracking up!”
Self-Blame: “What’s wrong with me? I’m such a loser!”
Mental Filter: “Why can’t I get anything done? My life seems like one long procrastination.”
Now imagine what it be like to live a life that’s free of worries and self-doubt; to go to sleep at night feeling peaceful and relaxed; to overcome your shyness and have fun with other people; to give dynamic presentations without worrying yourself sick ahead of time; to enjoy greater creativity, productivity and self-confidence.

I have had this problem for 14 years, including:
- generalized anxiety disorder
- panic attacks
- social phobia
- fear of driving or traveling
- a stressful feeling 24/7
with symptoms like a racing heart, a dry mouth and a red face, nausea, dizziness, headaches, a feeling of warmth going through my body, and some aches and pains everywhere in my body . The doctors couldn't find anything and all my therapist did was prescribe more pills that gave me side-effects.
In 2004 I found a way out and since then I've been sharing my method with other people all over the world. It's not a miracle, it's not a magic cure but it seems to work very well for the people who give it a try.
