Research has shown that hypnotherapy can help relieve stress, fear, and anxiety. It can also be used to help in coping with the symptoms of panic disorder. There are many ways that we can help ourselves build resilience:
Water: Keep hydrated – drink at least 1.5 litres a day; A hydrated mind is a focused mind.
Learn to say NO: NO does not have to be a negative response
Take a Break: Taking a break helps you to re-energise; 5-10 minute breaks taken regularly thought the day can increase productivity
Relaxation: Book time away for yourself and family; a day out, a holiday or a weekend away. Take time to recharge your batteries!
Hobbies: Spend time enjoying your hobbies; if you haven’t got any, start to think about what you might enjoy trying or doing
Sleep: Sleep is very important; it’s a time to repair and restore our mind and body
Taking care of ourselves by using such methods as mentioned above, will help to relax the mind and allow you to feel more in control.

Women seem to suffer disproportionately. A recent survey of more than 1,000 UK women found that two-thirds feel anxious at least once a week and that a third of these have no idea how to cope with these feelings. And the numbers are rising.
There is good news, however. There are simple, everyday actions you can take that will help alleviate the symptoms of anxiety and make it less likely to catch you out the next time. So how do you move from panic attacks to peace? Instead of reaching for a glass of wine, try these:
