By understanding your triggers and creating a personalized plan, you can conquer your panic attacks, take back control of your life, and live free of fear. Don't let panic attacks hold you back any longer – let's discover how to stop them together.

    The Science Behind Panic Attacks

    The science behind panic attacks is complex and multifaceted. They are a complex phenomenon that involves both psychological and physiological factors. 

    At their core, panic attacks manifest the body's natural physiological "fight or flight" response, which is triggered by a perceived threat or danger. When you experience a panic attack, your body releases stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol. These hormones can increase heart rate and cause rapid breathing, sweating, and trembling.

    Panic attacks are also influenced by psychological factors such as cognitive biases and negative thinking patterns. For example, people who suffer from them may tend to catastrophize and overestimate the severity of their symptoms, which can exacerbate the panic attack and create a cycle of anxiety.

    Studies have also shown that the amygdala, a small almond-shaped structure in the brain that processes emotions, is hyperactive in people who suffer from panic attacks, being more responsive to fear-inducing stimuli than in individuals who do not experience panic attacks. The hyperactivity of the amygdala can lead to a heightened sensitivity to potential threats, even if they are not actually dangerous. This can trigger a cascade of physical and psychological symptoms that characterize a panic attack, contributing to the intensity of symptoms.

    Other brain regions, such as the prefrontal cortex, hippocampus, and insula, have also been implicated in panic attacks. These areas regulate emotions, memory, and interoception (the awareness of bodily sensations). Studies have suggested that individuals with panic disorder may have reduced prefrontal cortical activity, which may impair their ability to regulate emotions and respond effectively to stressors.

    Panic attack relief is possible with the right approach. It is vital to seek help and support from those around you to reduce feelings of fear, isolation and anxiety. Below, we dive into the most efficient ways to stop panic attacks.

    Learn How to Stop Panic Attacks

    While there is no one-size-fits-all solution for managing panic attacks, it's essential to experiment and find what works best for you. Below are some techniques to help you stop panic attacks and take control of your life. 

    Breathing Exercises

    Deep breathing is one of the most effective breathing exercises for panic attack relief. This technique involves taking slow, deep breaths through your nose, filling your lungs with air, and then slowly exhaling through your mouth. When your breathing is deep and intentional, it can help regulate your nervous system, slow down your heart rate and calm your mind.

    Another effective breathing exercise for panic attacks is belly breathing. It involves placing your hand on your belly and taking deep breaths, focusing on expanding your abdomen with each inhale and contracting it with each exhale. Doing so can activate your diaphragm and stimulate your parasympathetic nervous system, which can diminish the physical symptoms of a panic attack.

    1. The 4-7-8 technique is another breathing exercise that can help treat panic attacks. This technique involves inhaling for four counts, holding your breath for seven counts, and exhaling for eight counts. This process activates your parasympathetic nervous system, calming your mind and reducing anxiety.

      Incorporating breathing exercises into your daily routine can be an effective way to manage panic attacks. You can practice these techniques anytime and anywhere, whether at home, at work, or on the go. By doing so, you can build resilience and reduce the likelihood of a panic attack occurring.


      Meditation is an ancient practice that has gained popularity as a way to manage anxiety and stress, which are common triggers for panic attacks. By incorporating meditation into your daily routine, you can develop a sense of calm and inner peace that can help alleviate the symptoms of panic attacks.

      One of the most well-known forms of meditation is mindfulness meditation, which involves focusing on the present moment without judgment. It helps you observe your thoughts and feelings without being attached to them, which can keep panic attacks at bay.

      Another type of meditation that can be helpful for panic attack relief is loving-kindness meditation. This practice involves directing feelings of love, compassion, and kindness toward yourself and others. Cultivating these feelings of positivity and compassion can counteract negative thoughts and feelings that may cause panic attacks.

      Guided imagery is another useful type of meditation. This technique involves visualizing a calming and peaceful scene, such as a beach or a forest, and using your imagination to transport yourself to that place. Focusing on the senses and creating a vivid mental image can calm your mind and reduce anxiety.

      There are many types of meditation techniques that can be helpful for panic attack relief. Finding a meditation that resonates with you and speaks to your soul is essential.


      Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool that can help people suffering from panic attacks at a subconscious level. By accessing the subconscious mind, hypnotherapy can reprogram negative thought patterns and help you develop a new way of thinking.

      During a panic attack relief hypnotherapy session, a trained hypnotherapist will guide you into deep relaxation, also known as a trance state. In this state, your subconscious mind is more receptive to positive suggestions and affirmations that can help reframe negative thought patterns.

    Hypnotherapy is a very effective treatment for panic attacks, anxiety attacks, and panic disorder and has been shown to reduce their frequency and severity. By tapping into your subconscious mind, you can gain insight into the negative beliefs and behaviors that are contributing to your panic attacks. The negative beliefs and behaviors may come in the form of catastrophic thinking, perfectionism, negative self-talk or avoidance mechanisms. 



    Once you identify these negative patterns, you can work to reprogram your subconscious beliefs to more positive and constructive ones. By changing your subconscious beliefs and thought patterns, you can alter your emotional and physiological responses to anxiety-provoking stimuli and reduce your likelihood of experiencing panic attacks.

    Hypnotherapy can also help you develop a sense of inner calm and self-confidence that can be invaluable in managing your panic attacks. By reprogramming negative thought patterns and replacing them with positive affirmations, you can gain the confidence to face fears and overcome panic attacks.

    One of the key benefits of hypnotherapy is its non-invasive nature. Hypnotherapy has no adverse side effects, unlike medication or other more invasive treatments. It can also be used with other therapies to provide a holistic approach to relieving panic attacks.

    Mindfulness Practices

    Mindfulness practices can be particularly effective because they help focus on the present moment and accept thoughts and feelings without judgment. This way, you can learn to recognize the signs of an impending panic attack and take steps to manage the symptoms before they escalate.

    Mindful breathing, body scans, and mindful movement are all mindfulness practices that can help relieve panic attacks. Mindful breathing involves focusing on your breathing and bringing attention back to it when the mind wanders, whereas mindful movements, such as yoga or tai chi, can reduce anxiety and promote relaxation. Body scans are helpful in dealing with panic attacks. They involve systematically bringing awareness to different parts of the body and releasing any recognized tensions and sensations through breath and relaxation. By practicing body scans, you can become more attuned to these sensations and learn to identify them early on.

    To add mindfulness to your day, you may want to start with small activities. For example, mindful eating involves bringing attention to the experience of eating and noticing the taste, texture, and smell of food. Similarly, mindful walking involves focusing on the sensations of walking, such as the movement of the feet and the feeling of the ground beneath them.

    Incorporating mindfulness practices into your daily routine is a powerful way to curb panic attacks. You’ll develop a greater sense of calm and inner peace that can be your ally in managing panic attacks. Paying attention to your thoughts and feelings in the present moment can help you better understand how to react to different situations and stimuli and develop strategies for managing difficult emotions such as anger, fear, and sadness.

    Identifying and Avoiding Panic Attack Triggers

    The first step in identifying panic attack triggers is keeping a diary. This involves tracking the time and place of each panic attack and any factors that may have contributed to the episode, such as stress or caffeine consumption. You can better understand the patterns and common triggers contributing to your panic attacks by analyzing this data.

    The next step is to learn how to avoid these triggers. This may involve lifestyle changes, such as reducing caffeine intake, avoiding alcohol, or developing coping strategies to manage stress.

    One of the critical benefits of identifying panic attack triggers is that it can help you regain control over your life. Panic attacks can be unpredictable and overwhelming, but by avoiding triggers and developing coping strategies, you can improve the quality of your life.

    Regain Control of Your Life

    Panic attacks can leave you feeling powerless and hopeless. But by learning to manage and prevent panic attacks, you can develop a greater sense of self-confidence and self-efficacy.

    You’ll feel more in control of your life and better equipped to handle stressful situations, daring to engage in activities you previously avoided due to fear of panic attacks. This increased self-confidence can positively impact all aspects of your life, including your relationships and work performance.
