The 20-Second Panic Attack Countdown

Here’s a tip on how to control panic attacks and anxiety attacks by By Barry McDonagh, a man who once had such intense panic attacks he couldn’t leave the house.

Why, I wonder, are top psychologists and doctors still teaching the same old outdated methods for treating general anxiety and panic attacks?

Panic Attack Control Solutions?

It seems every time I do an online search there’s yet another anxiety “expert” talking about controlling anxiety and panic attacks with brown paper bags, by just thinking happy thoughts, with special breathing, etc. I’m sure you have come across them a million times already.

This is silly. How can anyone *solve* an anxiety issue  or control a panic attack if they are only exposed to “coping methods.” When it comes to anxiety attacks, just “coping” is not good enough. What’s needed are REAL solutions! I know!

So, I want to share something that DOES work to REALLY control anxiety and panic attacks. It’s a very simple way to help end the fear of having PANIC ATTACKS. This is a very good exercise for people who want something practical to focus their attention on when they feel the pressure of a panic attack building.

It’s very simple and easy to remember. Here goes…

Control Panic Attacks For REAL

Try My 20 Second CountdownSolution: When you feel the sensations of a panic attack building up, do the following to establish control:

Tell the panic it has 20 seconds to initiate a full panic attack. 20 seconds and no more. After the 20 seconds are complete it must stop making empty threats.

You are allowing 20 seconds for it to fully manifest, but not a second more.

Whatever the bodily sensations you fear, they must happen within that 20 second time frame.
• If you heart is going to explode then it has 20 seconds to do so.
• If you are going to lose control, then your mind has 20 seconds to do so.
• If you are going to faint – 20 seconds! But absolutely no more time than that.

You get the picture. By setting a specific time frame for your panic attack, YOU establish boundaries of control. You turn it into a game where YOU call fear’s bluff. If it were in a party poker game, you are asking anxiety to show its hand.

This works because it establishes a sense of control within your mind and body.

You think to yourself, “I’m not prepared to spend my time worrying about controlling my panic attacks. I’ve had enough. I’m going to give it 20 seconds. But after 20 seconds and nothing has happened, then the opportunity has officially passed and I am going to go back to what I was doing.”

Then start counting nice and slow. Do NOT  rattle it off as fast as you can. Really tease it out like you did when you were a child and you never wanted to reach zero. Teasing it out is the key, because it allows you to feel generous and that you are giving anxiety every chance possible.

Deep down you DO know there is really nothing to fear.

To really help tease it out, break the last few numbers into fractions.
2…and three quarters…
2…and half………………
1…and three quarters… (last chance anxiety)
1…and half……………… (I really cant wait any longer)
Sorry — too late. We’ve reached the end.

By not rushing through the countdown you will feel your confidence soar. You are demonstrating real control and authority over your anxious thoughts and bodily sensations. You are saying “Look, I am really trying to give you all the time I can to unleash X,Y, and Z. I am being very generous here with this countdown.

Count your way to freedom. Count your way to confidence.

Smile Away the Flu

fluShould you just forget the flu vaccine?

University of Wisconsin-Madison neurologists have found a direct link between the body’s immune response and a positive attitude.

A group of 52 people volunteered to be vaccinated against the flu.

But before administering the flu vaccinations, neuroscientist Richard Davidson and his colleagues scanned the brain activity of the subjects as they recalled a vividly happy memory, and again as they thought of another memory that made them feel sad or angry.

Your brain’s prefrontal cortex regulates your emotional responses. The right side of the prefrontal cortex (under your right temple) registers negative emotions, and the left regulates positive emotions.

The researchers tracked the volunteers’ antibody counts over the next six months. They found that six months after being vaccinated, the happier subjects (those with more activity in the left prefrontal lobe) had more antibodies in their system. The less positive volunteers (those with more activity in their right lobe) had weaker immune responses.

The conclusion was that having a happy, positive attitude actually strengthens your immune system. So if you want to strengthen your immune system, focus your mind on the positive things in your life.

And smile away the flu!

New Evidence You Can Read Minds

EinsteinCan You Read Minds?

YES, you can — and DO read minds. You already realize  you can  feel the emotions of others, and also  understand their feelings and motives.

In effect, you can actually see things from their unique perspective. But how we do this has long been a subject of intense debate among psychologists and neurologists.

But some scientists now believe we are all  read minds, and the evidence is mounting.  It all has to do with what scientisit  call “mirror neurons.” And yes – you DO have them in YOUR brain!

How You Read Minds

Back in 1996, three neuroscientists were probing the brain of a macaque monkey when they stumbled across a curious cluster of cells in an area of the brain that helps us plan  movements.

They found that the cluster of cells fired not only when the monkey performed an action – but also when the monkey saw the same action performed by someone else. The cells  responded the same way whether the monkey reached out to grasp a peanut, or merely watched as another monkey or a human grab a peanut. Because the cells reflected what the monkey observed in others, the neuroscientists named them “mirror neurons.”

Later experiments confirmed the existence of mirror neurons in humans … and revealed yet another surprise: In addition to mirroring actions, the cells ALSO mirror sensations and emotions. In effect — they discovered how we read minds.

“With mirror neurons we are practically in another person’s mind,” says Marco Iacoboni, a neuroscientist that works at the School of Medicine of the University of California, Los Angeles.

Vittorio Gallese, a neuroscientist at the University of Parma in Italy and one of original discovers of mirror neurons, has another name for this theory. Gallese calls it the “Vulcan Approach,” in honor of the Star Trek protagonist Spock, who belonged to an alien race called the Vulcans who suppressed their emotions in favor of logic. Spock was often unable to understand the emotions underlying human behavior.

You Are a Natural Mind Reader

All this indicates that we are all natural mind readers. We place ourselves in another person’s “mental shoes,” and use our own mind as a model for theirs.

Gallese contends that when we interact with someone, we do more than just observe the other person’s behavior. He believes we create internal representations of their actions, sensations and emotions within ourselves, as if we are the ones that are moving, sensing and feeling.

“We share with others not only the way they normally act or subjectively experience emotions and sensations, but also the neural circuits enabling those same actions, emotions and sensations: the mirror neuron systems,” Gallese said.
