Many people know someone who suffers from anxiety attacks or have experienced them themselves. While anxiety attacks are a commonly dealt with in everyday life, they can be very hard to handle for a lot of people. When someone close to you frequently experiences anxiety, you may not know what you can do to help them. This article will show you some things you need to know in order to help and support your loved one through their anxiety attack. 

1. Never question reasoning. When someone suffers from anxiety it can often times make no sense. Things that seem small and simple to a regular person can make a person with anxiety fall into an attack. Always recognize that when a person is having an anxiety attack, their feelings are valid whether you understand them or not.

2. Offer to help. Everyone reacts differently when they are offered help during an anxiety attack. Never take what they are telling you personally during this time. Some people during an attack need to just be left alone until they get through it. Others may need to be talked down, and some even need to be held until the anxiety attack passes. Always give them the power to control the situation, ask them if you can hold them, or if you can talk with them, or if they need to be left alone. Asking them what they NEED, and what you can do to help is very important. 

3. Breathe. Breathing practices do very well for people who suffer from anxiety attacks. Slowing things down and taking deep breaths with your loved one can help to relieve the anxiety by focusing their mind on something different. If your loved one wants you to stay with them during their attack talk them through breathing in deeply and exhaling slowly. 


4. Go to a professional. It may be good to ask your loved one if you could sit in on a therapy meeting with them, talk to them with a therapist present so you can be in a safe environment and have your loved one feel safe in opening up to you about their anxieties.  Ask for professional help on how to help your loved one, You could also consult a doctor on your own and ask questions on how you can better help your loved one through their anxiety.
