Very Important Tips On How To Stop Panic Attacks In A Car

The reason for this post is because having a panic attack in a car is more common than you would like to believe. I have had several panic attacks in a car and I can tell you it wasn’t any fun. There was no reason for the attack that I could logically point to but meditation did help. It is a process and one I plan on winning.

There are a few situations where having a panic attack can cause very disastrous results. Having a panic attack while driving is one of those situations. If you’re driving, you need to have your wits about you. If you have a panic attack while driving, you could potentially get into an accident because you’re not thinking clearly. And if you are one of those people who get panic attacks while driving, you need to seriously learn how to stop them or else you could end up in the hospital or worse. Learning how to stop panic attacks in a car is not unlike trying to stop panic attacks in any other situation. However, most of the time when trying to stop panic attacks you will put yourself in the situations that cause them while you try to control yourself so that panic attacks don’t happen. When trying to learn how to stop panic attacks in a car, this can be a little trickier.

The Reason

Before you learn how to stop panic attacks in a car, you should really work on why you get them in the first place. Many people get panic attacks in the car following some big accident. They were fine until they got into that one accident and now they can’t even step foot in a car without feeling flushed and out of breath. And if they were to drive, they would probably get into an accident again because they can’t keep their eyes on the road with their head going in so many different directions. Think back to before you got the panic attacks and try to pin point the time when they started. It’s likely that they appeared after some big event such as accident where you were jarred or injured.

Meditation

The best way to learn how to stop panic attacks in a car without actually getting behind the wheel is to meditate. Close your eyes and breathe deeply, focusing on your breath, until you feel that you’re in a relaxed state. Clear your mind of nothing else but your breath. When you’re completely relaxed, and every muscle of your body is relaxed, then picture the car. Picture you getting behind the wheel or whatever else you do that brings on the attacks and then imagine yourself as completely confident and in control. It will take lots of practice at first and it’s going to take a lot of mental power in order to imagine this correctly. But if you want to learn how to stop panic attacks in a car, without actually getting behind the wheel, this is the best way. Soon, you’ll be so good you’ll be ready to get behind the wheel once more.

Start Slowly

If you want to know how to stop panic attacks, sooner or later you’re going to have to get behind the wheel of a car. It’s recommended that you do just that without actually driving anywhere. Just sit there and imagine yourself driving. Imagine yourself in control. Soon you’ll be able to drive without having a panic attack but you should start slowly before you do something that might incite another attack such as getting on the freeway at rush hour. That will come with time.
