As a therapist, one of Ann’s top skills is helping anxious and panicking people learn how to regulate their minds and bodies so that a “swirly” mind and edgy body don’t interrupt life. In this solo episode, Ann unpacks the “first line of defense” against anxiety and shows you how to practice three techniques that will stave off a panic attack.

If you try these techniques on yourself or with a friend, make sure to let us know how it went! Disclaimer: these are general techniques that are helpful for most people, but should not be construed as medical or therapeutic advice for your specific situation.
