Call the Psychologist… Panic Attacks are a Real Thing

Call the Psychologist… Panic Attacks are a Real Thing

Many folks might be saying, ‘Duh’, but that is exactly something that someone said recently after they had experienced that awful feeling of terror. Yes, panic attacks are as real as heart attacks. Here are a few facts to know about panic attacks and how to get past the fear.

You are not alone

When an individual is experiencing panic attacks, they feel utterly alone. But the truth is many people at one point in their lives has or will experience a panic attack.

 You are not weak

One of the best descriptions of why a panic attack occurs is because panic attacks are usually the mind’s reaction of layering up a lot of stressful situations on top of one another until your strong mind can’t hold anymore. This doesn’t mean you or your mind is weak, it means no one should have to be that strong for that long.

People that never experienced a panic attack doesn’t understand what you’re going through

This is a fact. Many folks can be compassionate that you are having emotional issues. But unless they have gone through this themselves, they just don’t get it. Some people think that you can just get over it, or let it go. Sadly, it doesn’t work that way, which leads me to my next point…

First step of getting better is you need to let go

I know it contradicts what we just said… but letting go by talking to someone who actually understands the reality of your panic can be extremely healing. At first, it might feel worse, but being able to talk about the symptoms and fear is like physically pushing it out of your body and mind, and sending it out into the universe to never return. Healing doesn’t happen immediately, but it starts the ball rolling. Talking with a psychologist or therapist online can be a great option in your recovery process.

Push yourself

Face your fears. We’ve all hear that, and there are times when you will have to push yourself to face those fears. Other times, you may decide it’s too much. There’s nothing wrong with that as long as you are progressing in other areas. Keep it on your list of things to build back up to.

Take your vitamins

Eating properly is important when it comes to complete health. Amino acids and B vitamins are a must in supporting brain health. Taking an amino acid complex could be a huge help in reducing panic, anxiety and depression. Talk to your doctor about adding in an amino supplement.

Pressure points can ease the pain, …or panic

Pressure points exist all over the body. They have the ability to heal areas inside and outside the body. There is a pressure point on the roof of the mouth that regulates the amygdala, (the gland that releases your fight or flight response). Press the tip of your tongue to the roof of your mouth, directly behind your two front teeth. Press for several seconds, while remembering to breathe. It will reduce the panic, or in time stop it before it starts.

 

Remember, you are not alone. There are people out there that can help.  There are many methods to help heal your emotional mind. As you work on yourself, you will begin to feel strong again. But I think the moral of everyone’s story, …Don’t hold onto too much stress. A professional can help you learn how to do that. Eat right, and don’t forget your vitamins and aminos. As you do the work, this will pass. In time, it will be a strange memory.

Ways to Get Through Tough Life Situations

Ways to Get Through Tough Life Situations

Sadly, whether we like it or not, life has a way of throwing difficult situations our way from time to time. And while many of these situations may seem totally overwhelming, there are ways in which you can deal with them in a healthier and stronger way. A great deal of the time, you don’t see the situation coming and you can end up wallowing in the general unfairness of life. Alternatively, you can develop strategies and coping mechanisms that guide you through the times when life gets tough. To give you a helping hand, here are just a few of the ways that you can cope with life’s most difficult situations.

Make Acceptance Your First Priority

Dealing with a bad situation can often be like dealing with the most common stages of grief. You may find yourself confronted by a combination of denial, pain, guilt, anger, sadness and bargaining, to name but a few. Right at the end of the common stages of grief comes acceptance. In a tough life situation, you will want to rush ahead to this stage as quickly as possible. Though you can’t crush down your other emotions, you can accept that what has happened to you has happened and you can’t do anything to change it. All you can do is think about what you will do next.

Start Taking Practical Steps

One of the first things that you can do is make a distinction in your mind between what can be changed and what can’t be. It is the former category that you will want to focus on as much as possible. It often helps to write down some practical solutions before you actually start putting them into practice. For example, if you find yourself experiencing family troubles, you may need to get legal advice from someone such as www.JudithGoldberg.com/fl. If you lose your job, you can start tapping up your contacts to find new opportunities. The knowledge that you are taking practical steps to deal with your problems can be hugely comforting.

Remember that You Can Continue from This Point

One of the first reactions that people have towards difficult life situations is to wonder how they can possibly carry on from this point onwards. If you let this feeling get the better of you, it can be totally overwhelming. Remember that a huge majority of the most successful people in life have had to deal with great adversity. Sometimes their greatest achievements have even directly followed these negative life events. Remind yourself that things can and will get better, but you also have to learn to be patient.

Get Support From Others

Though many people like to present the image that they are sailing through life smoothly, everyone has to deal with a great deal of adversity regardless of how it may seem. Draw support from those who are closest to you, and take advice from people who have been in similar situations to yourself. It can be an enormous source of comfort in knowing that you are not alone.
