Where Do Panic Attacks Come From?

ecaudioweb2.jpgI’ve been coaching anxiety and panic attacks sufferers for many years now, and one of the most common questions I hear is “where do panic attacks come from?”

Many people believe their panic attacks “come out of nowhere.” But in fact, this isn’t true. Panic attacks come from habits. More specifically, mental habits that we fall into over time unknowingly.

It sounds kind of strange, but the reality is that panic attacks are a “lifestyle issue.” They are the result of an imbalance in your life. This “imbalance” can be very subtle, almost unrecognizable, but it has very real and damaging results.

So how do you stop the panic attacks?

The way to prevent panic attacks (and other anxiety problems) is to deal with their root cause — the mental “environment” that allows them to flourish. This process has several steps, and I’ll be talking more about that over the next few weeks. But for today, let’s just focus our attention on one specific topic: Control Issues.

Anxiety and panic attacks are most often the result of trying to over-control your life, and situations. It’s an easy habit to fall into (I’ve been there). But fortunately, there IS a way out.

The first step is to build up your tolerance to situations that are slightly out of your control In the Easycalm Video Series, we start VERY small, taking gradual steps to build up tolerance over time.

The idea is to begin making a few easy lifestyle changes — changes that reduce your tendency to over-control situations. What we are actually doing is expanding your comfort zone. The more you follow the program, the stronger these “emotional muscles” get, until you are capable of letting go of control to a great extent, and being perfectly comfortable with that.

This approach breaks the chain of anxiety and panic attacks, freeing you to do things you want and need to do to live a happy life. Things that were previously WAY outside your comfort zone.

This concept is summed up perfectly by EasyCalm user Lucinda from Washington DC:

“EasyCalm has been an amazing resource for me. I’m back in control of my life finally without trying to over control everything.”
