We become anxious whenever we feel triggered, and the reason why we get triggered depends on our life experiences and on the way we were raised. While some of us learned how to deal with difficulties and problems in a more balanced way (e.g. seeking and receiving support), others might not have had the chance of growing up with good role models in that matter or might have even faced specific traumatic situations in life that conditioned them into a “fight or flight” response.

The truth is that each person has his or her own triggers. The more conscious or aware we become of our triggers though, the better equipped we become in the future to respond and manage our anxiety or tendency for panic attacks.

Here are some of the feelings we go through during an anxiety/panic crisis:

  • a deep and sudden fear
  • helplessness
  • a sense of being ‘frozen’
  • a struggle to breathe

When we notice that we are struggling to breathe, we start thinking that we are not in control of our body and mind – that’s when we panic for real. In this Meditation Class I will guide you through an exercise that I find helpful to learn on how to deal with anxiety or panic attacks in the future by using the breathe and visualisation.
