Work with your breath. Breathe deeply and fully in
and out through your nose. (I have stickers all around my office
that say "Breathe!" as my reminder to breathe fully.) Shallow
breathing or holding the breath is one way our bodies react when
we're unconsciously try to protect ourselves from feeling an
uncomfortable emotion. But this type of breathing can lead to
hyperventilation, which can lead to a panic attack. I've written
about the benefits of breathing fully in previous issues, most
notably in November 1997, but if you'd prefer more concrete help
with this, you can use the a
complete kit. The Healing Panic Attacks Recovery Program is available at
on the Home page
Panic Recovery manual"
to review the first five chapters and you will be convinced this is
the program for you.
