When Jane found Panic Away she found great comfort in the realization that she was not alone. Jane had suffered from panic attacks since the age of 12 and knowing that others were going through the same thing helped her tremendously.  Jane used to have a fear of flying and would not get on a flight.

Now, she is married to a pilot and flies at least 12 times a year on both long and short flights.

Alongside the Panic Away program, Jane also discovered many tips and tricks that were valuable tools for her on her journey towards an anxiety free life.

Find out what her 5 tips for reducing anxiety are below:

“Once I discovered I wasn’t alone it helped tremendously and the Panic Away course was the only course I ever purchased. When I was at my panic peak I’d spend a lot of time on the forum and when I am ok, I don’t use it. It’s good to know it’s there should I need it.

Now I know it will pass and I’m not alone. I’ve also learned it helps:

1. To get good sleep,

2. To have achieved a level of fitness as hyperventilation starts when I’m unfit.

3. To maintain a good weight.

4. To eat regularly and to not skip meals. I keep biscuits or energy bars in my bag if I know I might miss a meal.

5. Writing down my blessings when I feel an uneasiness start. I’m more anxious when I’m unwell which, thank goodness, is rare.

Point 5 is of utmost importance because when you write down your gratitude, you fill your consciousness with positive thoughts and vibes. This immediately lifts your spirits and I feel the calmness seep into me. As a child I’d sing hymns or read psalms from the bible. Anything positive to distract from the attack.

It’s very hard to convince someone in the middle of an attack that it will pass. When you feel like you’re dying it’s hard to think logically. This is the key time to use what you’ve learned. I used to be terrified of flying, afraid an attack would start at 36000 feet.

Now I’m married to a pilot and fly at least 12 times a year mostly long haul flights of over 6 hours in length. The trick is to have many and varied distractions. I have my kindle, my knitting, my iPad, where I write affirmations if I feel uneasy.

I do not take any form of drugs to control my anxiety. The thought of a drug controlling my problem doesn’t sit well with me. Therefore, it’s important I learned to control the attacks naturally.

Thankfully over the years the attacks have lessened and I’ve not had a major attack in over 20 years. I raised my kids to speak of their problems and should they have an attack to call me. Thankfully they don’t have this affliction. I used the lessons of my fear-ridden childhood to raise my children differently and it’s paid off. I’m very grateful for that”

“Trust me it gets better” – Louise’s Success Story

Louise’s anxiety got so bad that it prevented her from going to College or Work. She couldn’t go out in public, eat or even just enjoy a movie. After practising the Panic Away techniques and using the forum, Louise now describes herself as an incredibly happy person. She is enjoying work, and living her life.

” My anxiety started back in October, it was so bad, that I had to cancel my plans to go to college, and not go into work.

I thought I was doing good all through November and I got enough courage to fly into work in December. However, my anxiety got the best of me when I went up to work and I was sent home after 4 days because I had a panic attack.

It sent me right back to square one, I couldn’t go anywhere public, to eat or enjoy a movie. I thought I had been doing so well but I was back at the beginning. I tried going on long-term anti- anxiety meds two times and both times it made it worse and just didn’t help me one bit.

So I really started using Barry’s techniques, and learning to accept myself and my feelings. I started talking with a great counsellor and journaling really helped me too. I really prepared myself for when I had to return to work again. It had been a whole 4 months since I had done a rotation at camp.

But I just did my first week at work since October and it went AMAZING. I have so much more confidence in myself after getting through it. I was soooo nervous to go on the plane and so nervous to work, my thoughts were going full force a couple days before I went in, but I told myself that I’m safe and it will all be okay. And of course it was!

Just shows how bull sh*t these anxious thoughts are, trying to tell you that things are gonna go horrible but they really aren’t. I finally feel like I’m getting my life back on track, I was in a really bad place the past few months and thought things would never get better and I’d always be like this, but TRUST me it gets better. 

I know I’m still gonna have my challenges, this is only one week of work and I have tons of weeks ahead of me and trips I’d eventually like to take. It will take time I know, but I know I can do it and if I have the strength to do it, you do too.

This program has helped me tremendously. I met someone on here that helped me out so much, and got me through a lot of tough days without even knowing me, and I’m happy to now call him my friend.

There are truly amazing people on here that are brave enough to share their stories and it really helped me when I felt I was spiralling down into darkness, so i wanted to share my story. Trust me there’s a light at the end and it will only get better

Anxiety is one of the worst things I have ever experienced, it’s tough when people don’t understand and you feel alone, but know that you are not. I’m on a high from my success of flying into work, having no troubles there and flying back after I was done my week. I am so incredibly happy, and if you were to know how bad things were for me a couple months ago, you would not see the same person at all”

If you are reading this and are in the same place that Louise was, battling with panic and anxiety, know that you can get better and you can have your life back. You are not alone in this!

How to Stop Fear and Anxiety from Controlling Your Life?

‘You can do it!’- Roy’s Panic Away Success Story.

Panic Away member, Roy shares his anxiety story with us. For anyone doubting themselves, or the Panic Away program, Roy is here to tell you and reassure you that: YOU CAN DO IT! 

“It’s been a little over two years since I found the Panic Away program, and the Forum.  I had suffered a pretty nasty panic attack around October of 2010, and not being able to understand what it was that I experienced, the fear of it drove me to a pretty bad case of anxiety.

I suffered through all of the nasty symptoms that most of us experience with panic and anxiety, and I’ve been through some pretty tough and challenging experiences in my life, including Army boot camp. Nothing came close to the battle, and the challenge of overcoming a really heavy case of anxiety, and the fear of another panic attack.

If you’re someone that has just started this program, or you’ve been on this journey for a while and you’re trying to get back that life you once enjoyed.  I’m hear to tell you… you can do it!

I’ve seen and heard people say, (and I said the same thing myself)… “I just want my old self back.”   I’m pretty sure what you’re going to discover on your journey through this experience, is that you will find yourself again, but you’ll be a changed person because of it.  What I mean by that, is that you’ll be so much more aware of things that you didn’t pay attention to before your struggle began, and you’ll be a better person for it.

I heard this great quote from an NFL coach who won his battle against leukemia… he said “it’s not your circumstances that define you, it’s how you deal with them, and overcome them, that make you who you are.”

I think the hardest thing to accept through my recovery process, was that it was going to take time.  I heard Barry and others say this over and over, but I wanted it to go away now.  If there’s one piece of advice that I can give you, it would be this… try not to rush the recovery process.  Give your mind and body time to heal itself, and it will.  Accept where you are, and believe that you will get through this by working through the program, being patient with yourself, and giving it time.

I can honestly tell you that I don’t know exactly when the anxiety no longer effected my daily walk through life. It just begins to fade away when the focus on living your life, becomes more important than the focus on your struggle with anxiety.  I still feel a little anxious now and then, but that’s to be expected.  After all, it is human to be a little anxious and fearful of things sometimes.

The memory of what I went through with panic and anxiety will always be there, just like the memories of all the good times, and the struggles I’ve experienced in my life.  I think they’re a reminder of what’s important in life, and that past experiences help us to avoid making the same mistakes in the future.  Sharing our experiences can also help others get through tough times, and maybe avoid some of the pitfalls in life that you’ve experienced.

Faith, Love and Hope- A Panic Away Success Story

A Panic Away member explains has gone from an anxiety stricken life to a busy, normal, happy and healthy one!  A combination of Panic Away and practicing faith, love and hope have gotten her to where she is today.  She has now gotten perspective over her anxiety journey and see’s it as a gift. Continue reading for more info about this wonderful and inspirational success story.

“Faith Love Hope, these three words are what helped me to live a full normal healthy busy life again. It’s been nearly 4 years since my first experience with a Panic Attack. As most of you I’m sure I didn’t know what hit me. Is this a Heart attack? was this a Nervous Break down? some kind of Seizure? I was worried and desperate and I felt so alone!

My dearest friend suggested that it might be Panic Attacks so I started my research.

Days turned to weeks and weeks to Months, I was struggling terribly, no medication that my Dr gave me worked! I couldn’t sleep because I was so scared something might happen to me when I did. Now I know that sleeping well is one of the most important gifts we can give our Anxious bodies

One Doctors visit followed another, one test after another nothing seems to be wrong with me physically. At last I dicided to buy the Panic Away Program (at first I thought it might be a scam boy was I wrong!) I immediately printed the booklet (I bought the online copy) and started reading. I cried heaps because someone understood!

Someone knew! Someone have been through this horror and survived!

I joined the Forum and it became a life line. Panic Attacks and Anxiety is a lonely road. Family and friends don’t understand, they try but they don’t. This Journey is YOURS and yours alone!

Something that I read stuck (I think it was Barry that said it) You will get to the other side and it would have been worthwhile! Really? You’ve got to be joking! I feel horrible! I feel sick all the time! My tummy is upset, I can’t eat, I’m nauseous and dizzy all the time. I’m so so scared!! How on earth can this be worth anything? Well today I can say the same. This has been a difficult but WONDERFUL Journey and I am actually glad that I had been given this Gift.

Faith


Have faith in yourself and your body.
Have faith that you will come through this.
Create your own Recipe for healing and have faith in it.


Mine is:

  • Enough sleep, at least 8 hours a night 10 is even better especially when you just start healing.
  • Drink a lot of water. I always had a bottle of water with me, it was my medicine.
  • Eat healthy meals, as little take away and instant food as possible.
  • Cut our Caffeine and alcohol especially in the beginning.
  • Do lots of exercise! (You have to build up a sweat. I promise you it is better that any Benzo!
  • Do the Panic Away Audios as much as possible! (I also find Guided Meditation a wonderful tool)
  • DO NOT RESIST A PANIC ATTACK! Welcome it in, let it flow right through you. Tell it that you are not frightened of it and that you know, it can not harm it!

Hope


Start every day with the hope that today is going to be better than tomorrow and tomorrow even more better. Without hope our days will be an endless struggle. We hope and we strive for calm and for peace in ourselves.

If like me you couldn’t drive any more, just DO it, every day, as much as possible because the day will come that you hoped for, driving will be easy and calm again.

If you’re scared to leave your house, just DO it, if you walk 100 steps more every day, soon you will be able to go as far as possible and the day you hoped for will have arrived. If you’re scared of Flying (like I was) buy a ticket and just Do it, because you might be besides yourself with fear, you might even have a Panic Attack but you will be okay and the next time you will be able to do it easier and the next even like the experience.

Love


Learn to love yourself. Accept yourself for who you are. Love YOU! Look after you. Give yourself the time you need to recover and to recuperate. It’s okay to be a little selfish, it’s okay to say NO.


Recognize your blessings no matter how small they seem to be. Being Positive and thankful is the best Love you can give yourself.

My life is full of Joy and Peace. My life is Calm and Comfortable. My body is healthy. My Mind is healthy. This Journey has been a blessing and it still is every day. Every day is good!

You can have this too, just believe! Don’t wait for this to be over, WORK at it as if your life depends on it! Do what you want to today, go for a walk, go for a drive, go for a visit don’t put it off because you feel anxious. Have Faith, have hope and have Love.

Thank you for sharing these wonderful tips and inspirational story with us! You truly deserve your new, anxiety free life and you should be very proud of yourself!

What is the Best Way for Responding to Fear and Anxiety?

Responding to Fear and Anxiety – Shake Off Anxiety with Two Simple Words!

Have you ever noticed how anxiety is fuelled by one simple question you keep asking yourself?

That question is… what if?

What if I drive my car on the highway and I have a panic attack?
What if faint in public, who will help me?
What if I get sick or lose my job?
What if my mind never stops racing with anxious thoughts?

If anxious ‘what if’s’ are not quickly defused, they tend to spiral out of control, leaping from one catastrophic thought to another. Before you know it these ‘what ifs’ have triggered a tidal wave of adrenaline and fear.

What if?…What if?…And then what if ?

You can’t stop these ‘what if’s’. They manifest outside your control.  What you can control is how you respond to them.

In order to defuse these anxious ‘what ifs’ you need to answer the question quickly and limit the potential for the anxiety to spiral out of control.

A good strong response to a ‘what if’ is: ‘So what!’

What if I drive my car on the highway and I have a panic attack?
So what! I’ll pull over and get through it like I have always done in the past.

What if faint in public, who will help me?
So what! If I faint I faint. Someone will come to help me and in two minutes I will be conscious again.

What if my mind never stops racing with thoughts?
So what! Thoughts are just thoughts and cannot harm me. Eventually my anxious mind will settle.

It doesn’t matter if you don’t fully believe in your own responses to these questions, the key point here is to quickly defuse the build-up of fear by answering the ‘what if’ with a strong enough response.

As long as you come up with something reassuring and dismissive of the initial ‘what if’ thought it will have the desired effect.

To make your response even more effective you can have a sense of humor with your replies. Humor is the fastest way to disengage your anxious mind. An anxious thought can be diminished in a flash of laughter.

This is effective because it neutralize the fear and places you back into a position of power.

Side step the trap of anxiety by always responding to fear and anxiety with a good strong ‘so what!

Responding to Fear and Anxiety – Play Anxiety Away

Play and laughter are such powerful tools for reducing feelings of anxiety.

I am a huge advocate of using humor and play to boost mood and reduce anxious feelings. I know many people who transformed their anxiety just by doing focusing on play and laughter alone.

I recently recorded an interview with Charlie Hoehn who is a marketing strategist for several New York Times best-sellers , and the author of a new book called ‘Play it Away’.

I really liked his book because its basic premise is how to use play to snap out of an anxious state of mind.

BTW, if you suffer from burnout at work I think you will find this interview particularly interesting.

Besides Play the other topics discussed for reducing anxiety are:

-Tension Releasing Exercises.
-Why you should stop watching the news.
-Removing Coffee
-Spending time outside in nature

Why Distraction Helps Ease Anxiety


CLICK HERE to Get Immediate Relief from Anxiety & Panic Attack

In order to quickly move away from generalized anxiety, you need to throw yourself 100% into life.

What is needed is to engage regularly in an activity that stimulates you, and holds your complete attention, something in which you can become completely absorbed.

Something that distracts you is a very valuable tool in taking your attention away from the uncomfortable sensation of anxiety that may be lingering in your body.

You see almost everyone with anxiety finds themselves getting a bit obsessed about how they feel at any given moment. The less preoccupied the person is, the more time there is to obsess over anxious sensations.

I am sure you have noticed that when you are doing something you enjoy or that really holds your attention, the less you ‘check in’ to measure your anxiety level.

Quite simply, the more you engage with life the less stagnant and anxious you will feel.

Some of the possible activities that interest you could be:

Gardening, playing a musical instrument, sport, or simply having a good conversation with a friend. The idea here is to find something that you can repeat on a regular basis that you enjoy doing or that at very least holds your attention.

If you find you have too much time on your hands and are having problems coming up with something you could do, then I recommend you volunteer in a local voluntary scheme. It could be anything from helping the elderly, looking after animals or environmental conservation.

If you can spare even one or two hours a week for such work, not only will you feel your self-esteem improve, but it will help shake off any lingering feelings of isolation or loneliness which are so often accompanied by anxiety.

One thing you can be certain of is that there is some organization near you crying out for a volunteer just like you to assist them with their work.

The art of distraction has always been used to help people refocus and avoid concentrating on whatever physical or emotional discomfort the person is going through. It may just be the caring friend who invites their recently heart broken roommate out on the town to have some fun.

Dentists and doctors use distraction techniques frequently to distract the patient from a physical discomfort they may be experiencing, by giving them something else to focus on (usually the bill).

The purpose of using distraction, for people who want to live anxiety free, is to have new experiences that take the person’s mind off the anxious feelings they have been experiencing.

If you imagine that all the fearful anxious thoughts that go through your mind are like a roll of film being run through a film projector (your mind) and out into your life.

Concentrating on some activity immediately cuts the film and brings you directly into the here and now.

When you are fully engaged with life there is no room for any anxiety disorder. This mental space you create enables both your body and mind time to become less sensitized to the anxiety.

By doing something you enjoy and feel you are good at, helps build new competencies. You are saying to yourself that the anxiety path is not one you want to travel down anymore and that you will put your focus elsewhere.

The more time you give to following these rewarding pursuits, the easier it is for your body to relax and return to a natural state of peace.

Combine this with my ONE MOVE technique and people often look back weeks later and wonder if it was really them who was so anxious all the time. Note, it normally takes a few weeks to reduce feelings of general anxiety. That is the standard amount of time to come back to feeling more yourself.

Let me remind you that I am here to work with you if you want to learn more about my course and the One Move technique which has turned so many peoples’ lives around.

I’m so confident that my program will help you conquer your anxiety, that I offer an 8- week trial. If you do not benefit from the course you can have your money refunded immediately.

My course Panic Away has proved highly successful with both long and short term sufferers of panic attacks.
