Panic Attacks can be Managed by Staying in the Moment

Fear is part of our defense mechanism that is meant to keep us away from potential danger. However when the source of danger is internal, fear could turn into a panic attack which can prevent us from thinking clearly. By staying in the moment and analyzing our emotional response we can more effectively deal with the reality of the situation that is actually happening.

Learn to Understand What Might be Triggering You

Previous life experiences may have a personal meaning that triggers a disproportional reaction to an event. Understanding your triggers can allow you to face current situations and deal with them without adding layers of unnecessary fears.
