Here are the best natural remedies for panic attacks.
Being pregnant can increase the odds of your having a panic attack — especially if you have been prone to panic attacks in the past.
Here are 3 things you can do to stave off panic attacks when you’re pregnant:
- Drink some water.
Water keeps your nerves and veins at ease. So if you’re feeling panicky, or as though a panic attack is coming on, drink some water and head it off at the pass.
- Get a bit of exercise.
Sometimes when you’re pregnant, your muscles get tired of just doing the same old pregnant thing every day. And when you don’t use them, your muscles can feel restless. Over time, this can turn into a panic attack. So, get a little bit of exercise each day — even if it’s just going for a walk around the block.
- Learn how to breathe.
Breathing properly can head off a panic attack in record time. Pulling air into your lungs and filling them, and then blowing it out through your nose for a few minutes can work wonders.
Here’s how to breathe properly through a panic attack. This type of focused breathing also helps to prevent panic attacks when you feel them coming on.
My favorite things to write about are topics that have to do with pregnancy, weddings, saving money, living green, and life with dogs. When I’m not writing, I love to spend time with my husband, read, create 3D artwork and Native American beadwork.
