So you want to know how stop panic attacks way before they manifest? I understand how you feel – in fact I have spent years trying to control my anxiety attacks – so I know what you are going through. Today I have a secret to share with you that will help you eliminate intrusive thoughts that can, otherwise, hamper your better judgment and thus set the stage for the next panic episode. Get this – almost 90% of those who suffer from panic attacks don’t know the number one reason why their attacks re-occur. If you are one of the statistics, then soon you wouldn’t be. But first, let me ask you this: Have you ever been scared of having an attack before you ever had your first one? If you are like the rest of us, your answer should be a resounding “No” or, as most answer emphatically – “Never!” So what is this secret? It is this… Fear of the next attack. Yes, fearing the next attack = anticipating it = a full blown panic attack. Think back and ask yourself this: what had brought on the second attack? Wasn’t it the fear of having one? As you probably know – during an attack all brain activity shifts to the mid-brain, an area of the brain that is not only home to the fight or flight response, but also a part of the brain that is incapable of reasoning. That is why we are not capable to apply reason and stop the attack while in progress. But you can do is use reasoning before way before an attacks begins – like right now. Here is what you can do: 1) Acknowledge and face your fear 2) Make a commitment to never again fear a future panic attack 3) Monitor your thoughts and be on the lookout for intrusive thoughts
Warning: Do not underestimate the above. Once accomplished, you will amazed by the dramatic reduction of your anxiety level.
