One way to understand panic attacks is as a sign of feeling insecure or lacking confidence in a certain area or characteristic of yourself.

The insecurity can sometimes feel overwhelming and this starts the sense of panic. 

One way to build your sense of security within yourself is to have a simple life and a slow paced life.   

When there are many activities or involvements to pay attention, then it is easy to not give full attention to all of them.  This may trigger a sense of insecurity since in fact you may not have had sufficient time to study and know your own opinion about all of what your life is immersed in.

A simpler life of fewer activities allows more time to know and understand your own inner feelings and reactions.

To know more about yourself may help build your confidence and security in your ability to know and live what goes on in your life!
