How To Get Rid Of Your Anxiety And Panic

Aug 17, 2007
Panic and anxiety are emotions that have been around since the beginning of time... long before doctors coined the term "anxiety disorder" or "panic attack" to diagnose a patients' symptoms. Recovery from an anxiety or panic disorder takes a lot of time. While it's true that recovering from anxiety disorders is most of the time a solo effort, it will certainly be easier with the help of a strong support system.

1. Controlling panic and anxiety

You have control but you can't permanently stop anxiety and panic. When your child fails to call you and let you know if he or she is ok, then you will panic and fears will imprint your mind. Now, you can run with that fear and panic, while stressing over the situation or you can do something about it. Did you call his or her friends? Did you call the school? Did you call everyone your child knows? Did you tell the neighbours? Think before you react. Oh yes, you have probable cause to worry, however, your child being late does not mean the worst happen.

2. Results of panic

Panic can cause many negative things. When we start to dread the worst, emotions build within us and causes anxiety and panic. We think horror, terror, and the worst, thus training our mind to consider all negative possibilities. The key with anxiety and panic attach recovery is to catch those negative thoughts before they get out of control.

3. Causes of fear

I cannot stress that fear is the number one cause of anxiety, panic, fear, death, murder, crime, alcoholism, drugs, rape, and so forth. If you search the documents or history, you will find fear racing through the channels of each mind that acted out in a wrongful way. Fear is a natural protection mechanism of our bodies but when our fears become irrational and more than we can handle we know we have a problem.

4. Reality test

You can choose to take the following test. Whoops! Didn't mean to spark your emotions... Do not worry however, since this test is to check your reality. You come to a road crossing and a car pulls out in front of you speeding away. What do you feel? How do you react? You reacted out of fear, and probably called the person a jerk or worse after your emotions calmed down. You likely panicked, freaked, and felt anxious wondering if the car would hit you. What was real and what wasn't?
