Mental Health – Voices

“The best way to deal with a panic attack is to breathe through it and wrap yourself in a thick, warm blanket if you’re alone.”

My greatest goal in life is to be successful in whatever I end up doing after college, so that trumps the fluctuations in my moods on a daily basis.

However, it can be difficult to stay positive from day-to-day since I do have fairly bad anxiety. But I always try to breathe, relax, and tell myself that nothing is permanent.

I also have a private Tumblr blog that I don’t share with anyone; when I’m stressed I just write all of my emotions and thoughts down and that helps reduce my anxiety. I’ve also been re-watching ‘The Office’ episodes; comic relief does wonders.

My de-stress activities also help alleviate anxiety. What I have found especially helpful is doing more of a body-building workout routine to help me really exhaust my body and my mind.

The best way to deal with a panic attack is to breathe through it and wrap yourself in a thick, warm blanket if you’re alone. This has helped me a lot when I experience them.

My best advice to others seeing someone in the midst of a panic attack is to literally embrace them. Say encouraging words, tell them to breathe, and ask them to talk.

Don’t say anything negative, just keep things light and focus on helping them through the storm. In a stressful situation, what has worked best for me is to have a cup of tea, and don’t be afraid to talk about what you’re going through. The absolute worst thing you can do is to bottle it up.
