It is good to find a safe place, such as your vehicle or washroom, where you can calm down in private. Only choose a place that makes you feel in control, comfortable, and secure.

3. Relax by taking slow, deep, complete breaths. Calm yourself by remembering that you are only having a panic attack and that nothing more serious is happening to you. Continue to take slow, deep, complete breaths. Slow, deep, complete breaths will relax your body that is definitely the first step to reversing the release of adrenaline.

4. Some sample of Helpful Statements like "I've gotten through this situation many times before and I can get through it again" or, "I am fine, everything is fine."
