How to Overcome Panic and Anxiety

Posted By: Mike Sanderson on September 29, 2011 at 10:43 am

Any individual that has ever experienced a panic attack will know how life threatening these sensations can feel. A panic attack can significantly hurt your standard of living by making you become scared of a another episode. This apprehension is yet another negative complication of panic attacks, and you must learn to think about it as such so you can get on with your life without the continuous fear of a panic attack lingering over your head. Fretting about having a panic attack all the time might even make you trigger panic attacks later on.

Panic attacks feel a lot like coronaries. A panic attack may possibly cause your heart to quicken, and it'd lead you to become short of breath. You might realize that you feel dizzy or lightheaded, and they're characterized with the feeling of life or death seriousness. It isn't odd to imagine that you're dying or about to die when you're having a panic episode. Happily for sufferers, they're often not of a long duration, and will stop when they have run their course, sometimes a minute or two, or when the reason for the panic is removed.

If you are shocked that you could have another panic attack, you'll just finish up cutting yourself off from everything in order to avoid having another. You might hide from the world, or alternatively separate yourself from the acquaintances and family who might instead be well placed to help you. If this sounds familiar to you, then you need to consider looking for professional help to empower you to dispel the threat of panic attacks that hangs over your head.

You may be able to aid yourself by evading the scenarios that make you have your panic attacks in the first place. One of the most important causes of panic attacks is stress, and if you're continually in intense situation, then you will be at a much greater risk for panic attacks in the future. This stress isn't necessarily the stress that comes over 1 or 2 days over a specific event; panic attacks are triggered by sustained stress over a span of months or infrequently even longer. This stress is often too much for folk to bear, and whether or not we don't understand that, our bodies do, and they rebel.

Panic episodes may also be due to certain scenarios. If you get a panic attack each time you are running late, or stuck in traffic, or going over a bridge, then you need to make certain to avoid those scenarios to stop these same events from causing more panic attacks in the future. You can take a different path to work, leave early, and avoid roads that you know will be snarled with traffic or even head to a local place for dinner after work before facing the drive home.

If you try avoiding panic attacks and document where you were, what you were doing, and how you felt immediately prior to each panic attack, then you can use this information to bypass the things that trigger you. You may be ready to save a lot of difficulty with your psychological and even your physical health later down the line.

Panic attacks do not just feel remarkably like heart attacks; latest studies have linked experiencing panic attacks with an increased possibility of basically having a cardiac arrest later on. Keep your percentages low and keep your levels of stress down to stop panic attacks and to stay as fit as practicable. No one likes to suffer, and panic attacks actually fall into the category of suffering.

If you're at risk for panic attacks or you've had them in the past, then you should examine the past factors behind your panic attacks so that you can help yourself to avoid similar circumstances in the future. You should also get in contact with your doctor to find out if you might need medicine or care to help you take control of your life and get away from the panic episodes. You can take a look at this panic away review for an alternative solution. It can be difficult to decide precisely the best way of stopping panic attacks, but you may improve results when pairing the practice of avoiding triggers with medicine to help feel calmer. A specialist can also help you learn mental tricks to help you ride thru the panic episodes without totally losing your cool next time you feel one coming on.

Fear and Anxiety Whilst Driving Can be Overcome

Posted By: Mike Sanderson on August 19, 2011 at 8:35 am

Many individuals have worry or panic attacks when they get behind the wheel of an automobile. For many of them just the notion of driving fills them with fear and they have felt that way since their first driving lesson. Other folks have had bad experiences while driving such as being in an accident and have gone on to develop anxiety and panic around driving. Some have very particular driving nervousness issues such as driving over bridges or a fear of motorways for example.

However your driving nervousness manifests you may be reassured that there are efficient techniques of treating the problem so that you can overcome fear of driving. It may well be that your anxiety is simply a absence of confidence and with further exposure to the driving experience your symptoms may go down. If however the issue is more deep rooted then it may take a little more work. Anxiety whether it’s attached to driving or something else has the same underlying root cause. This root cause is the fight or flight response which becomes turned on by your brain when you feel there to be a threat of danger.

The flight or fight response is what sets off the chain of events in your physiology that bring on the sensations of nervousness and panic attacks. It’s nothing more than your body preparing itself to take action to protect you from danger. However this response in panic sufferers gets triggered too sensitively. This means that if you've had a bad experience while driving that the memories and feelings linked with this event make a conditioned response where the flight or fight response is triggered when your drive a car. Just sitting behind the wheel is a reminder of the situation you were in when you had that upsetting experience and this sets of the anxiety.

Like all of the phobias driving fear has its own name. It is known as hodophobia. You do not have to be car driver either, as it can apply to passengers also. Driving fears are typically related to agoraphobia where people feel out of control if they go outside of their zone of comfort.

The nervousness you experience while driving is due to you perceiving yourself to be in a threatening situation and you body will reply by turning on this flight or fight response. The is our built-in instinct of self preservation that kicks in when we are in a threatening situation and need to escape from danger. In spite of how bad you feel you most likely realize that what you are experiencing is irrational as you aren't really in danger. All that's happening is the flight or fight response is too easily caused. The key to beat driving nervousness and fear is to stop this response from kicking in when you are driving.

The author has written more articles on how to conquer fear of driving on his website and effective forms of driving phobia treatment.

Combatting Anxiety and Becoming Free from Fear

Posted By: Mike Sanderson on August 5, 2011 at 8:17 am

If you have issues coping with stressful circumstances then you may experience stress or panics attacks. These occur when you feel as if you can't deal with your fears and worries. Learning the way to combat anxiety is all about retraining your consciousness so you don’t overact to circumstances you find too stressful. Anxiousness is the results of believing you can't cope and this triggers the survival instinct that we all have that is commonly known as the flight or fight response. If the anxiousness gets towards becoming out of control we feel as though we are losing control and this regularly signals the commencement of a panic episode.

There isn't anything wrong with anxiousness as it is a vital reaction that tells us to do something to avoid perilous circumstances. However with nervous people this reaction is too sensitively triggered. This is a behavior pattern that can be retrained. This is the proper way to combat anxiousness.

The most worrying thing for most folks about anxiety are the unpleasant physical symptoms that go with the psychological and emotional symptoms. A rise in heart rate, a lack of breath, pain and tightness in the chest can end up in people thinking there are some things seriously wrong with them. However this is never very often the case. Our bodies should react this way in circumstances of genuine danger like being attacked by a wild animal. But with so many sources of stress and worry in our lives this reaction can become too fast turned on. As a consequence we perceive danger in scenarios that are actually not deadly in any way.

The real cause of all anxiety problems is a tiny area of the brain called the amygdala. This is rather like a switch that turns anxiousness on and off. However with anxiousness sufferers the amygdala has become rather trigger happy and will likely be activated by all types of eventualities and as a result we develop uneasiness and fears to these scenarios. The key to learning how to combat tension is learning new behavioral patterns that retrain the amygdala so that it does not become activated so easily. This is not as hard as it sounds and you can find relief of your anxiousness symptoms relatively fast.

If you've been prescribed drugs to manage your anxiety then you should be aware that these are covering up the symptoms and doing nothing to fix the cause of the problem. Anxiety is a behavioral problem that may be unlearned using numerous techniques like relaxation, meditation, NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy). There are plenty of specialists who specialize in treating folks with anxiety symptoms with methods like these. I found that one of most effective programs was The Linden Method. You can read my Linden Method review here. This is a comprehensive recovery programme for every type of anxiety and panic disorder and will answer your questions on how to combat anxiety.

The authors website has many articles on how to combat anxiety and how to stop panic attacks naturally.
