(00:00:57) - I've heard stories about people who have had panic attacks, and although I haven't experienced one, I thought it would be a good thing to talk about to know what to do, just in case do have one. So came across an article on healthline.com from Anna Gotter, and it talked about 12 ways to stop a panic attack. So I will cover some of those today. I am Drea, the hostess of Drea’s point of view, and I would love to invite you to follow me on Twitter @Dreapoint and Andrea's point of view on Instagram, Facebook, love, house, and Pinterest. Panic attacks can happen anytime without warning.

You may think that you're having a heart attack, and it can even happen in your sleep. If you have four or more of these symptoms, you may be having a panic attack if you feel weak or dizzy,

(00:01:59) - If you're nauseous, if you feel sweaty or have chills, if you feel like you're choking, if you feel like you're losing control, if you feel as if you're dying, if you have numbness in your hands or fingers, or if your heart is racing.

About 6 million people get panic attacks and more women get them than men. Those who have had one before are at a higher risk than those who haven't. One way to deal with a panic attack is to keep lavender nearby. It's one of my favorite scents. I use it in a robot therapy for my massage sessions. It's very calming, gives you very calming effect. You can use lavender oil as well. It's recommended that if you use lavender essential oil, you should get it from a reputable source.

Using muscle relaxation techniques can help your body respond differently to a panic

attack. You can practice mindfulness to focus your attention on what's going on, recognize that you're having a panic attack so you'll know that it's temporary. Losing your triggers will help you identify that it's a panic attack and not something else. Seeking help, like cognitive behavioral therapy can help change the way you see certain situations.

00:03:28) - Practicing deep breathing is a way to help with the panic attack as well.

Closing your eyes is another way to help with a panic attack.

Exercising at least three days a week can help reduce anxiety.

Research shows that if can boost mental help, although some aerobics can trigger additional anxiety, so it's best to build gradually. You can read the other ideas in the article that's written by Anna Gotter on February 23rd. 
of this year. My quote of the day comes from quotes, gram.com.

Depression, anxiety and panic attacks are not a sign of weakness. They are signs of having tried to remain strong for so long. One in three of us go through depression, anxiety, or panic attacks at least once in our life. Would you share this on your wall for at least one day? Most people won't. To those who do, thanks for sharing the support. Let those who struggle know that they're not alone. I don't wanna change your point of view, but simply get you to listen to Drea’s  point of view.
