Those of you who suffer panic attacks what are some things you do when you’re having one that helps?
Breathing into a paper bag will actually make the situation worse. When you have a panic attack it is because your body thinks you aren’t getting enough air. So by breathing into a paper bag you’re blowing carbon dioxide into the bag and then breathing it back in again.
I’ve had a few panic attacks in my life, nothing serious, but I always try to yawn. It helps get more oxygen into your airways and it helps to calm you down.
