Anxiety attacks: 6 ways to fight them instantly

Don't get carried away by panic, just a few tricks are needed to live better. And remember to self-motivate yourself and accept yourself

Anxiety is one of the most common disorders of our time and often manifests itself with violent and sudden attacks of fear.

About 10 million Italians suffer from panic attacks, among these we find not only ordinary people, but also famous people who over the years have had to deal with this problem, from Fabrizio Corona (it was Belen to reveal it) to Violante Placido, passing through Madonna and Aida Yespica. The last to tell his relationship with anxiety was Giovanni Allevi, who in an interview with Verissimo revealed: "I thought I had overcome this problem, but on a trip in the middle of the night from Trieste to Milan I had a new panic attack. The fact is that the God Pan within us rebels against this life ".

Moments of crisis, apparently caused by anything, normally last 30 minutes, but in severe cases they can last up to 6 months. The episodes of anxiety are manifested by tachycardia, vertigo, extrasystoles, sudden sweating, tremor, feeling of suffocation or asphyxia, pain or feeling of weight in the chest, nausea, fear of dying or going crazy, chills or flushing.

Our body takes about three minutes to react by producing adrenaline. So it is important to act in this time to cushion attacks and reduce side effects. The number one rule is to try to stay calm by acquiring the awareness that the panic episode will end. Where to repeat that everything will be fine.
