Technique #1
Let me begin by saying this: Fighting it is not to your advantage! People experiencing an attack usually have this as their biggest problem. The need to fight off and control a panic attack is what most people feel as soon as they notice the onset of an attack. The worst thing you can do at this time however is fight. Having a panic attack is more likely the more you try fighting it. You begin to feel panicky as though you will be powerless to fight it the more you try. Learn not to fight off panic attack. This is the first thing you ought to register in your mind. Allow a natural flow of things.

Technique #2
Telling yourself that you are alright is the second technique. When you tell yourself that you are fine it sounds reassuring to your mind; although this sounds silly, you better believe that it is true. It doesn’t have to be said in aloud thereby making you to feel silly in the process. It simply means repeating to yourself again and again that you feel fine, and that everything is okay, and that there is nothing to fret over. Without doing much else, this will mostly have the effect of controlling the panic attack.

Technique #3
Number three is breathing, controlling your breathing pattern. Your heart rate goes out of control when your panic cycle begins because you stop breathing correctly. You need to learn how to control your breathing before the onset of your panic attack. Control of your panic attacks can be aided by your mastery of this technique. It is not as easy as it may seem at first even though it may seem so. Breathing is the first thing that gets out of hand during an attack and it is mainly because most people forget how. Your panic attacks begin to come in full force once you stop breathing.

Technique #4
Relaxation is number four on our list of panic attack control methods. Why not pause for a moment and take time out to relax your muscles now...While having a panic attack, you will observe that most of your muscles will begin to lock up and cramp. Your already out of control panic is not helped by this immobility. You can clear your mind and calm your body by taking a moment to relax. Just tell yourself that everything is going to be fine and continue to breathe right.

Technique #5
Number five is to keep in mind that panic attack has not particular trigger. What causes the body to react this way is something that no one knows for sure. Some things in your life may have triggered this panic attack, investigate what they may be. If your body is really stressed find out why or what the cause is. The situation that you are in may, to your surprise, have nothing to do with it.

In this article we have looked at the 5 best techniques to control your panic attacks. These techniques are but a tip of the iceberg when it comes to controlling panic.
