If your like me alot of anxiety leads to a full on panic attack of feeling terrified, full of adrenaline and pins and needles!
I've had one almost every morning for the last week and have had to call an ambulance on one occasion as it got that bad.
When you get these horrid feelings all you want to do is sit or lay down untill they disperse but it's not always that easy, as with me.. sitting still makes me think more! Anxiety and thinking don't mix too well as we know.
But I found a way to stop these panic attacks from the onset, yesterday morning I had the most terrifying attack i've ever had, I thought half way through that if I can distract myself enough surely it will go, much to the suprise of my worried parents I got up onto my feet and began doing star jumps, counting every single one out loud untill it had gone! No word of a lie after 20 star jumps I had completely shifted the panic attack and felt normal! I was amazed!
I had another attack this morning and did the same thing, again.... 20 star jumps later... It had gone, if you have to do more then do more, do it untill you feel normal but make sure you count out loud, shout if you need to.
After doing some research, your body cannot physically create bad or negative thoughts if you are exercising as too much of your brain is being used to jump, move your arms and legs and count at the same time.
It's been a lifesaver and I can feel the attacks diminishing, I even do it when I get bad thoughts .
Give it a go!.
Won't hurt to try .
