does anyone out there have any tools for getting past a period of panic attacks?? I need some help.
i was told to look at 5 different things in your room the feel 5 different things then stomp your feet get grounded to where you are. Last breath slow breaths and think of a place you were happy. listen to music get awarm bath
call a friend or crisis team to just talk they will help keep you calm i hope it passes quickly take care.
I lay down flat on my bed and breath evenly and I pray.
Good advice.. My therapist calls it visualization and controlled breathing.. They are both good coping skills..Use them both at the same time..
Mindfullness meditation is very helpful, I will link you to a wiki (for a general idea of what it is and some proper articles and some guided walkthroughs that they have on youtube:
6 minute guided meditation:
10 minute guided meditation for stress:
(this I listened to for a bit and he uses some kind of a bell and it was too painful for my chronic headaches)
Documentries explaining it and how it affects your brain:
Cognitive Neuroscience behind mindfulness: 48 minutes
Mindfulness guided meditation with Jon Kabat-Zinn (the founder of Mindfulness Meditation at from John-Hopkins Univesity) 1h 12 minutes
