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.

Get The Glow: How To Make Yourself Feel Good This Year

Get The Glow: How To Make Yourself Feel Good This Year

When you feel good about yourself, it shows in every aspect of your life. You are more likely to take care of yourself and eat well when you are happy with who you are. You are more likely to be healthy when you feel good about yourself, as you’ll take the time to exercise and are generally more positive than those with lower self-esteem. Don’t get me wrong; you don’t have to be overly confident and the loudest person in the room to be happy with who you are. But if you have a goal this year to love yourself more and take more time for yourself, then it can help you to feel good. Here are some things that you could do to help yourself feel good.



It can be hard work to be negative a lot of the time. It can get you in a bit of a depressed cycle, and it can be hard to get out of. But one thing that you can do to improve how you feel is to laugh. Look on the lighter side of life and don’t take things too seriously. It is a great way to destress and relax, which can help your general health no end. Laughing burns calories too, so I’m not sure if there is anything much better than that!

Take Time For Yourself

If you are in a bit of a rut with life, then it can be detrimental to how you feel about yourself. But this year is the year to make changes. Take some time out to do something for you and only you. It might be tricky if you are a parent, for example, so it is a good idea to schedule it in. It might just be that you take a relaxing bath. It might be to exercise or go for a run. It might be a hobby like crafts or sewing. It might even be focusing on mental health. But whatever it is, make sure that it does become a priority.

Make Physical Changes

Quite often we feel down on ourselves because of the way we look. But you know what? You are only going to feel worse about yourself if things stay as they are. It could be time to shift those pounds that you’ve wanted to for a while. It could be time to change your hair color or get a haircut. It might be time to do something a little more drastic like cosmetic dentistry or surgery. Just make sure that you are doing it for the right reasons.

Eat Better

We have all heard that old saying that you are what you eat. So if you eat crappy foods, you’re going to feel kind of crappy. So if your diet needs a bit of a shake up, then it is time to make some changes. Make sure that you are getting plenty of vitamins and minerals on your plate. Fill your plate with color instead of lots of beige and brown. Drink plenty of water too, and you will feel so much better for it.
