Help for a Panic Attack – Two Christian Based Anxiety Exercises

I’ve struggled with severe anxiety on and off for most of my life – from the time I was very small. I’ve tried most kinds of remedies, including medications at different times. I’m here to tell you that I got through it and there was a wonderful life on the other side.

These meditation/exercises are not something that is designed to replace the therapies that you have currently.  They are just a couple of activities that will hopefully provide you some relief and help you on your journey to wellness or help get you through a difficult episode. If this is an ongoing issue for you that you don’t have under control, please go see a doctor. There is no shame or judgment in it. Sometimes that is what needs to happen to help drive the shadows away.

First Exercise:

The first exercise comes from a friend who also has suffered from panic attacks most of her life.

One of her strategies for dealing with them is to put post-it notes with scripture around the house to read aloud since it’s often hard to think in the middle of a panic attack. What a great idea!

Why it helps:


Second Exercise:

I was trying to keep my panic at bay before a diagnostic test. I was pacing around the house and my eyes fell on a felt board that I’d hung in the kitchen and hadn’t changed in months. The last time I’d touched it was St. Patrick’s Day:

I wondered why I didn’t think about it before! I could use this! Creating the scripture verse on the board was incredibly therapeutic while at the same time it made me feel like I was fortifying my position of faith and courage in God.

Why it helps:

If you’re reading this post, I’m praying for you! God bless you and I hope these help!
