I've found that, although I've no idea why, if you put the thumb of your dominant hand just under your chin, and the middle finger in the centre of your forehead, just slightly above eyebrow level (think it's the "third eye" spot) as you do this breathing exercise, it really enhances the effectiveness.There’s is also a mindfulness breathing exercise that could help. Take a few moments to breath deeply, follow your breath three or four times (feel it going in through your nose, feel your chest and abdomen rise and then feel your breath exhale and your chest and abdomen relax). Add to the moment by thinking to yourself several times ‘I can do this, this too will pass’
Concentrating on your breathing and the words is intended to distract your mind from the panic attack
