After the night of the missiles from Iran, it is no wonder that most of us feel signs of anxiety at various levels. Some people who develop anxiety disorders may not respond well to common anxiety treatments such as cognitive behavioral therapy and antidepressants.

A study published in the journal PNAS shows that recalling any symbol or sound unrelated to the triggers of an anxiety attack, or looking for such symbols and sounds, can help ease the effects of the attack. The researchers recommended that people who suffer from anxiety attacks find safety signals to think about or look for during an attack. This may reduce their response to the threat and may even prevent future attacks. If the safety signal method does not work for you, there are other things that can done to ease the feeling of anxiety such as slow breathing, relaxation techniques or mindfulness. Remind yourself that this is a feeling that most people experience at some point in their lives and that you are definitely not alone in the struggle to overcome it. The Israeli company that invented hair removers does it again.
