Panic attacks can take over your life if you don’t know how to bring them under your control. The difficult bit about such attacks is that they don’t only manifest in your mind but also have physical repercussions which can be painful as well as embarrassing in social situations.
Although there are pharmaceutical drugs available that can be taken to control panic attacks and their effects on your life, physically and mentally, it is best to stick to natural remedies to avoid becoming dependent on these medicines and suffering from their side effects.
Yoga and meditation
Although this may seem like a cliché, it works wonders if you know where to go and what to do. Since panic attacks are directly related to the nerves, there are yoga routines specifically dedicated to calming the nerves and soothing the mind. Too many thoughts can cloud one’s thought process making it difficult to make simple daily decisions. Practicing yoga regularly can bring clarity to one’s thought process making life easier.
Meditation builds concentration and drains the mind of useless thoughts that may unnecessarily cause stress that ultimately leads to panic attacks.
Although you should curb on the cardio exercise if you are a patient of hypertension, if you have a strong heart, you must exert yourself everyday by indulging in some sort of physical activity. This not only relieves mental stress but also helps in inducing a rush of adrenaline and endorphins which make you happier through the day.
Try to avoid the usual bad foods such as fries, sugar-rich components and white carbohydrates. This is only because too much of energy in the body can lead to panic attacks if you don’t expend it successfully. Bad food also affects sleeping patterns and cause fatigue and stress.
Treating the root cause of panic attacks in your life
Panic attacks are usually the result of some deep-rooted matter that is taxing your mind and body consciously and/or subconsciously. Other than detecting the symptoms of an on-coming panic attack in order to deal with it effectively, you must discover the cause for it and solve the problem to get rid of the very cause of such a panic attack.
