When you have a panic attack, do you know what to do? Or do you just suffer the attack and wait for it to pass?

Not knowing what to do makes the attack much worse. It adds uncertainty and a feeling of helplessness to an already horrible situation, often increasing the severity of the attack and causing it to last longer.

But there are things you can do when you have a panic attack. Simple things. Things that make the attack less severe. Things that make it stop altogether.

By knowing in advance what you need to do when you have a panic attack, it’ll mean the next time an attack strikes you won’t have to think (it’s hard to think when you’re panicking). Instead, you can just act.
