  • Avoid alochol, because this may lead to sleep problems or even trigger panic attacks.
  • Stop smoking. The nicotine can cause panic attacks in some people.
  • Stop having caffiene. Caffiene sources include coffee and soft drinks.
  • Exercise burns up stress causing chemicals such as adrenaline and cortisol, and this will help you to relax.

  • Create small, obtainable goals for yourself, then once you reach your goal, reward yourself.

    My life was a hell caused by my panic attacks and anxiety. I tried everything: psychologists, psychiatrists, all kinds of pills and drugs. The only thing that helped me and cured me were these techniques I found online. I hope they are useful to you.

    i cant stand anxiety because its causing me not to have any meaningful relationships with people in general - and drinking alot of coffee and caffeine does not help much at all - i dont go out alot and dont do anything but play video games and get on the internet although i love gaming it does not help my self esteem or self confidence nor does it affect it - but i have to find a way to build it all back up and get to the way i am supposed to be - i have to cut down on coffee and soda and drink more water and eat balanced meals but i eat horribly unhealthy foods and that does not help either - if i play a game sure it gets my brain working but not in the way i want it to - anyone have any ideas?

    For some obscure reasons, I sometimes find stress as one of the reasons
    my breath would stink especially in important occasions where I have to
    render face to face interactions. Could it be that my mouth would dry up
    easily? I've asked my dentist in champaign il about it already but all I got was a mouth wash and a free tooth brush. What can you concur about this? Cheers!

  • Too much stress can lead to anxiety and depression, which then stresses you out more. It is always good to keep yourself active and healthy. Organization really helps too. Thanks for all the tips!
