Panic attacks are something that can affect our day-to-day lives and are a horrible experience to go through. However they can be controlled and not dangerous in the sense that a panic attack will not leave you physically harmed.
Here are my personal tips/advice on how to avoid/control a panic attack
Control your breathing!
Take deep breathes in through your nose and then out your mouth. If your breathing is uneven, you'll start to feel a tingling sensation in your hands/ feet/ ankles. To control your breathing is very important when having a panic attack because it can also take away the thoughts of not being able to breathe.
If you experience regular panic attacks then exercising can be very helpful. Even just a walk round the block can help you clear your mind and focus.
Keep focused on something positive!
When having a panic attack, it sometimes feels like this feeling of anxiousness is never going pass. IGNORE IT!! Focus on something positive such as a happy memory or someone you admire and ignore the feeling that a panic attack bring because the anxiousness and feeling of panic shall soon pass over.
If you are having panic attacks regulary or they are starting to interfere with your life then speak up. Your mental health is just as important as your physical health and if you speak up now, then you can get better. Help is out there and you have nothing to be afraid of.

There was a season in full house when aunt Becky would wear lovely long dresses. I decided to go with a more formal outfit for Aunt Becky because there wasn't many times when we saw her get 'dressed up'.
Regarding jewellery, I feel like Becky has quite an expensive taste (I'm not sure why, just a thought). With that in mind I looked for expensive-looking jewellery yet still at a reasonable price.
In one episode, Becky teaches DJ how to wear make-up and taught her that less is more! It's the exact reason why I put together some naked palettes because in my opinion they are one of the best brands for a natural look.
I hope you enjoy this outfit as much as I enjoyed making it :)
Love you all,

Get Everything Prepared and Organised
It may sound blatantly obvious but both preparation and organisation are quite important. Getting organised shall be harder for some than it is for others but here are a few tips of mine that can help you which has certainly helped me in the past.
- Purchase an academic diary! I used one of these during my first year of college and it helped me with remembering homework and important dates such as exams.
- Try and do homework as and when it is assigned. Obviously this isn't always possible but procrastination isn't your friend and I'm sure the next episode of Hemlock Grove or Orange is the New Black can wait.
- Get your bag ready the night before. I only started doing this when I started college and it did help me sleep better at night because I knew I had everything I needed for the next day.
