Just breath deeply when you are in stress because it improves the circulation around the body. So, we have to be aware of our body.
2. Own Your Feelings
Own your emotions and feelings to realize that we are creating our own reality. We have to take responsibility of where we find ourselves and what situation we are in. It is very easy just to blame other people, we wanna say that they did this to us . Yes, may be they did but at the same time it is about how we respond to other people. We have to realize that we don’t have any control over what other people think of us. Our perception of ourselves is the only thing that matters.
3. Change Your Focus
What are you focusing on? Many of us try to focus on the negative because that is where so many of us live. However, you are going to get rid of anxiety when you focus on where you wanna be . When you let go. When you realize that you are focusing on what you want or you are focusing on what you fear. If we keep getting caught into dramas then that is going to create our reality. You have to snap out of it. Its just beautiful when you realize that freeing your heart is essential to release the panic. Freeing your heart helps you in defeating the fear because fear is nothing but a false evidence appearing real. So, you have to think out of box and in a linear way. When you open up to the people and smile more, automatically the panic disappears.
4. Look At Your Lifestyle
It means knowing thyself. To realize that the environment we are living in is promoting our wellness. Many of us don’t see that. Don’t go where the crowd is all the time. Environment is everything and when we talk about knowing thyself, which is also the part of the lifestyle, what does your soul resonate with and what brings you happiness. Are you doing that? Are you living the life you want to live? Most of us are panicking or are in stress because we are not doing what we love & what we want to do. We also have to see that part of the lifestyle is exercising so that you can release these powerful endorphins that will make you feel calmer. These days we all are time slaves and we fail to realize that the power lies in our hands. Its time to elevate and reclaim our power and not externalize it. The lifestyle we have also includes the food we eat. We are what we eat. What i am eating is making me more calmer or it is making me more tensed? The raw foods and plant based foods always have a soothing energy on the body. When we drink soda, coke or anything like that we feel nervous all the time and that also plays a vital role in attracting panic attacks and anxiety. So, becoming lighter is the only way to fly and to get relief from panic.
5. Stop Competing
Stop competing with other people. Everybody you see is living their own unique journey. You don’t have to fight for your piece of cake or don’t have to survive because everyone is unique. When you let go of competing with other people you let go of panic. Many of us are caught in a race like we wanna get somewhere and we feel that we have to compete with someone else. But actually that is just an illusion because there is enough for everybody out there. So, there is no need to get caught up in the illusion of scarcity and stop competing with other people. Less competition, less stress.
