Default Re: Panic Attack Strategies

1. Counting backwards from 100 by 7's helps. You have to really concentrate.
2. Get a cloth or paper towel and wet it in cold water. Press it into your hand or put it on your wrist or neck and concentrate on the coolness.
3. Swirl ice cubes around in a glass and watch them go in circles. Don't lose sight of them.
4. Concentrate on remembering a happy time. Relive it moment by moment. Soon you'll be so wrapped up remembering, you won't think of the panic.

I hope these tips help you. They work for me.
