Hi Jill

Anxiety and panic can hit us like a bolt from the blue but the key thing here is our reaction to it. Its so easy to believe the worst is happening but this is our irrational mind talking. Once you think it maybe panic or anxiety try calming techniques eg 7-11 breathing. it takes at least ten breaths to caom the body but stick with it. Trust in your ability to be ok and your body will respond with calm. A couple of good sighs help too. Hope this helps x
