Anxiety can at times be really overwhelming.

What are the signs and symptoms of anxiety?

Panic Disorder

People with panic disorder have frequent and unexpected panic attacks. Panic attacks are sudden periods of intense fear, discomfort, or sense of losing control even when there is no clear danger or trigger. Not everyone who experiences a panic attack will develop panic disorder.
During a panic attack, a person may experience:

  1. Pounding or racing heart
  2. Sweating
  3. Trembling or tingling
  4. Chest pain
  5. Feelings of impending doom
  6. Feelings of being out of control

People with panic disorder often worry about when the next attack will happen and actively try to prevent future attacks by avoiding places, situations, or behaviors they associate with panic attacks. Panic attacks can occur as frequently as several times a day or as rarely as a few times a year.

Here is a breathing technique that is easy to follow and has proven to be really helpful to balance the anxious feelings that well up in us from time to time.
