  • For me, exercising regularly helps the best. Do you have general anxiety or is there something specific that is making you anxious?

  • The best therapy for this is cognitive therapy which teaches you about positive thinking, once you change your way of thinking your attacks will subside. Exercise is also wonderful for eliminating stress
