Does this sound familiar?

1. Track Your Mood
Anxiety attack can be puzzling for some. You may feel that it comes out of nowhere and caused by nothing. If you feel like that, then chance is you still don’t have a thorough understanding about you and your anxiety.
The first step for how to stop having an anxiety attack completely is by understanding how it attacks you. You can do this by tracking your mood.
When you track your mood for a certain period of time, you will see a pattern. The pattern is different for each person, but it tells the fundamental thing to fight anxiety attack: the anxiety trigger.
Here is how it works. First, prepare a journal. Second, every end of the day, write your activity for that day and add the emotion you feel during each activity. For example, you can write it like this:
Going to work – feel normal
Called in the boss’ office – surprised
Lunch – uncomfortable
Writing report – clammy and want to go home quickly
When you have filled the journal for certain period, start noticing the activities around the time when you feel anxious. Maybe, you get anxious every time after being called in by your boss – no matter what the reason is. Maybe, you get anxious every time you do activities that make you talk in front of a group.
After knowing the trigger, you can help yourself to treat your anxiety better. For example, you can start to attend support group for people who want to be able to do public speaking. Or maybe, you can start to prepare your report and answer before your boss call you.
That way, you’ll be more prepared when something triggers your anxiety, and you won’t experience anxiety attack.
