    My way of stopping an anxiety attack.

    Hi all,

    I just want to share what has helped me be able to better deal with my panic attacks. It works most of the time but, unfortunately not all of the time yet...I'm very confident I will get there though.

    ..guys, and girls, it's all about how to stop resisting. It would take me so long to explain it in text so I made a video about it on my channel, where I talk about exactly how I do it.

    If interested here is the link How to stop an anxiety attack

    I really hope you can find it helpful guys!!

    Stay strong, warriors

    3:25 into it, it talks about keeping open posture. This is where I fail, I do slouch and walk with my head down during times of anxiety and I want to change this.

    Thanks!

    Yea. When you fight somthing ... it's hard to keep an open posture and hold your head up. However, if you make friends with it ... much easier to do.

    It is hard to do when having anxiety but it is what really changed it for me. To open up! And then it is really necessary to start with the posture. Keep working on it as it might help you, it sure did for me.

    Not easy but the resisting is what feeds the anxiety. I like the wording you use "make friends with it"....this is what we must do no matter how weird is sounds.
