Understanding Why You Panic And How To Deal With It
When you panic, you feel afraid. And fear restricts us.
This kind of fear is debilitating. When everything looks great on the outside, there is a constant and nagging fear inside of us. An internal attack of this kind happens once in a year for most of us while some of us experience a larger frequency of these worrisome episodes.
So how do you deal with a panic attack?
Understand The Source Of Panic
A panic attack is generally induced by a failure in the parasympathetic nervous system. Our nervous system is responsible to send signals to our brain which then sends signals to a part of the body to carry out a particular action.
The trouble is, our nervous system is also responsible for our emotions. These emotions are regulated by the nervous system (such as fear at the sight of a lion). If regulated correctly, these emotions eventually fade and the body relaxes.
But when the nervous system is not functioning properly, the brain reacts inappropriately and magnifies our emotions. So, something that should not register on our emotional radar turns into a full-blown panic attack.
Telling yourself to cool down and take it easy is just not going to help.
How To Deal With Panic Attacks
The fear of being afraid – the panic of experiencing a panic attack – becomes more frustrating to deal with than the actual event.
Instead of trying to stop them:
- Admit to yourself that you are experiencing a mild (or not) form of anxiety or panic attack.
- Be comfortable with the idea.
- And tell yourself it is okay to feel that way.
Embrace what you are experiencing. Be aware of it and choose to walk into the fear.
