Deep breathing

Members of the fellowship have found that if you feel a panic attack coming on, try taking slow deep breaths until sanity begins to return. Try other healing physical activities like soaking in a hot bath, looking in a mirror and saying ‘ “I love you”‘ or other affirmations, or repeating the ‘ Itoigawa Serenity Prayer’.

As we continue in recovery it becomes easier to recognize the triggers to panic attacks.  As the recognition comes we start to learn how to ease the control the triggers have on ourselves.
