      The 5-4-3-2-1 grounding exercise. Deep breaths and say aloud 5 things you can see, 4 you can feel, 3 you can hear, 2 you can smell, and 1 you can taste. It helps you to come back to your surroundings and always calms me

      Grounding exercises. Focusing on ur senses and surroundings and focusing on your breathing.

      Breathing and meditation are great for a " long run" tactic, but when you anxiety is severe you need, I think, a medical answer to daily life challenges. People can change and therapy is very serviceable also for the long run. I don't think anyone should hesitate to use medication to get some semblance of a " normal" daily life 🧬 ntil other things -- like mentioned-- start really helping.

      I try to distract myself. For me that often involves reading, but something else like drawing could also help.

      I know that’s a sucky answer but if you can get your breathing under control it will help with the attack itself
