Whether you are aware or not, chances are you have experienced at least a mild form of a panic attack at some point in your life. Whether it came in the form of a brief episode of anxiety, increased heart rate, a feeling of nervousness or simply the urgency to remove yourself from a situation, panic attacks are no fun.
There are a variety of options that can help you overcome anxiety. While some methods, such as herbal supplements or exercise practices may require long-term execution in order to achieve the benefits, there is one recommendation that I have heard about from a number of resources.
Even the most poised, professional, public figures experience panic attacks and swear by daily meditation to get them through it. According to the Maharishi Foundation, Transcendental Meditation (TM) is one easy-to-learn technique that can help you rest your mind and body. If you’re not savvy to meditation, don’t know where to start or don’t think it’s right for you, watch and listen to this story from Good Morning America and Nightline co-anchor Dan Harris.
