15. Don’t Forget to Breathe

This might seem obvious, but when you get nervous your breathing gets shallow and this can add to your feeling of panic. Concentrate on breathing in deeply through your nose and out through your mouth, as slowly as possible. This can be very powerful in preventing or stopping a panic attack.
