Posted by Debankur Banerjee Comments (25)

This will calm you down, allowing you to focus on the task at hand. Saved me when I had panic attacks. PACE stands for Positive, Active, Clear & Energetic. E. Drink water C. Brain Buttons: place one hand over the navel. With the other hand, massage the areas on either side of the sternum below the collar bone. Change hand (30 sec/hand) A. Cross Crawl: Touch hand to opposite knee and vice versa. Do this SLOWLY for approximately 2 minutes. Move shoulders and breathe. P. Hook Ups – Part1: Sit. Cross ankles. Stretch out arms, cross them and place palms together. Lace fingers and bring hands under and up to rest under chin. Close eyes, inhale through nose and place tongue on hard palette behind teeth. Drop tongue as you exhale. SLOW, STEADY breaths. Do as long as you want. Hook Ups – Part2: Uncross ankles and arms. Lightly touch fingertips together with both hands. Close eyes, inhale through nose and place tongue on hard palette behind teeth. Drop tongue as you exhale. SLOW, STEADY breaths. Do as long as you want. Slowly come back to reality and notice what your body feels.

    Hi These brain gym exercises were suggested to me for me to try them with my children and I was particularly interested in trying the Hook Ups (where you fold your hands together) but I couldn’t quite figure out how to do them from the written instructions. Now I know how to do them thanks to your video! Thank you. I appreciate it 🙂

    Freaking alcoholism is a major cause of anxiety and other similar problems. Freaking home breakers.

    There’s a small and excellent online depression support group called Depression Hangout that is always open to anyone who is struggling with mental health problems (not just depression). It’s run in its own chaotic way by its members who meet regularly in the chat room and it’s a great place to seek and provide help and support, make new friends and even just have a laugh. (We all need that too!) To join just go to depressionhangout-dot-blogspot-dot-com.

    no you see the reason people like you have panic attacks is shown in the first 5 seconds. Replace that water with a bottle of beer and all your problems will disappear.

  18. beduina says:

    What hapen to you, this brain gym exercise its for children. Don´t makes me lost my time.

  21. gusmacoz says:

    I think these exercises helped my ‘overcoming the anxiety attacks’ but yes moreso for relaxing myself during the onset of an attack. I can’t tell you exactly what got rid of them, but I believe I found my healing in this technique, moving meditation (Tai Chi & Qi Gong), eating wholesome food, exercising and having an understanding of what was really going on in my life to cause such anxiety. Ha, actually to think of it, all those methods were taught to me by my Mum. <3 you mum!

    2 Feng Shui Tips: Sleeping with your head under the window is a giant recipe for anxiety. Also, having mirrors in your room leads to anxiety as well.

    Thank you for the exercises, they really do work.
