PTSD attack what to do

Positive ways of coping with PTSD:

  • Practise breathing
  • Confide in a friend or person you trust
  • Spend time in nature
  • Learn relaxation techniques
  • Avoid alcohol and drugs – or reduce your intake
  • Join a PTSD support group
  • Seek help from a therapist who understands you and trauma.

Breathing: breathe in through your nose for 4 seconds and breath out through your mouth for 4 seconds, for 2 or 3 minutes. This will calm your nervous system and focus your mind on the here-and-now, connecting you to a place of inner calm and peace. It’s a technique used by everyone from star athletes to the military to help stay in control while under stress.
