So anyways I have tried everything when I have an anxiety attack. Breathwork always made me feel more anxious, and all the other stuff never worked. I heard a new technique that my therapist explained to me. Well everyone has the animal instint in them. That is why we we start having a panic attack we want to run. I usually can sit still I have to get away or at home and pace. So when you think of rabbit, if there is a predator the rabbit sometimes plays dead. Some animals wont eat the rabbit if they think it is dead. So when there is no more danger the rabbit looks around in every direction adn if the danger is gone gets up and shakes it off and goes on. Well with anxiety attacks the hardest part is shaking it off, with me I get really depressed after it and wonder obsessively about when the next one is coming. So the point that my therapist was trying to make is you want to run but don't use your legs and act like you are running sitting down and when you are calming down, shake it off and realize wow you must have been stressed today and let go of it. Also she told me that steady rythms help too. So for instance you can cross your arms across your chest and tap on each sholder. You start a pattern and do it slower than you heartbeat and you will calm down way faster and you are focusing on something else. Anyways I hope some of these help with yall. I don't know if they work because I havent had an anxiety attack today! yes!
