Hello, welcome to Jason newland.com. My name is Jason Newland, this is relaxation, hypnosis for stress, anxiety and panic attacks. Please only listen, when you can safely Close your eyes. Just want to say a quick thank you, to all of you that are making this podcast a
success. I really appreciate the people that listen those of you that listen. Well, several and that's listening isn't really but I appreciate it because it makes what I do worthwhile. So for today, what I would do is want to talk about seven symptoms of anxiety. Or because say some of the symptoms of maybe having an anxiety attack or a panic attack. And the rapid breathing, that's the, or the hyperventilation kind of thing,
that and that was what I was looking to focus on. And before I continue, just to remind you, if you if you're not aware, I do other podcasts to help with insomnia, you know, to help you with sleeping.
That's one of the things I kind of you could sell specializing in a sense of I do a lot of that stuff. So I've got a few podcasts that have that are focused just on sleeping, so they might be worth checking out. If you go to my website, Jason Newland, calm, they're all on there. And I do new recordings. Most days for the deep sleep whisper hypnosis, the let me Boyd asleep as well. I usually do the new one, trying to do one every day
with those. So the whole breathing thing. I think it's important to kind of categorize in some type some ways, you know, someone's got asthma, or COPD, or some kind of lung issue or a heart issue, you know, someone's got a physical medical issue that maybe involves breathing,
then or not talking to those people. I'm not ignoring them, or not going to talk to people with heart problems that don't mean that
I in this recording is not aimed at people that have an actual physical illness or disease, which affects the breathing. Because they will be on medication they would have for asthmatic people would have an asthma inhaler, maybe to maybe also be on medication. Someone obviously, I forget the name of some of them might have guests, your guests cylinder and different things that they need to take. So that's a different thing.
And the reason I'm being specific for that is for someone that doesn't have a physical issue where the physically fine, I'm talking about heart, lungs, part of the body
when they're going through an anxiety moment, it could be a brief period of time, it could be a full blown panic attack or anxiety attack. And the breathing could change again I could become quicker or it could become harder to feel like it's harder to breathe.
Now the reason why I'm trying to separate the people who have physical issues and people that don't is if so has a physical, they've got asthmatics, however, then they need to address
the breathing very seriously and get it sorted and do take the medication and do what they need to do in order to resolve that issue in that moment, and then get medical help,
if required. If somebody doesn't have those issues, and you know, it's anxiety, that's causing the breathing, or causing the breathing disruption, or the feeling that your heart score coming out your chest, even though it's not,
then it's a different kind of way of looking at it. But saying that, and I'm going to contradict myself now
saying that, because I'm talking about ways of relaxing, ways of getting in touch with reality, the reality the situation is, you're going to be okay. And that can sound condescending, can sound like you've been talked down to. But I don't mean it to be that way. But you know what, in the moment, it's not necessarily helpful to someone to say you're going to be okay,
it can be really helpful. But if you get that idea, and you know, let it spread around your mind, when you fill in, all right. It's almost like you've prepared the way an athlete prepares before, you know, run in the 100 meters.
They prepare mentally they prepare for prepare physically as well. So when it comes to the, that burst of energy, and I'm talking like, I know anything about running 100 meters, it took me about three days.
But they're prepared. I think in situations like, with anxiety, if you if you know, that is a possibility, at least
of having an issue come up. When you prepared kind of go, it's like having a first aid kit with you. But a virtual one or one it's inside your mind, a bunch of things that you can
do. So you're not physically carrying around a big green bag, which I think is the color of the first aid kits these days. But in your mind, you've got these tools that you can use.
Whether it's meditation, whether it's counting the breaths, whether it's remembering that you're going to be alright. Remember that no one's ever died for a panic attack.
Unless the person was really ill, to start with. That's where the there's that line. Where if someone's got a heart condition, then it needs the person needs to mean serious it needs to work on relaxing and finding a way to relax quickly. hopefully find a way to not get at that level
where the anxiety is affecting the body to the extent of the heart racing too much. Because anxiety does make the heart race the pulse goes, but it doesn't go as fast as it feels that
is going when I used to get really, you know, at the worst time with the anxiety. I almost feel like did run in adrenalin was being kick started in like an engine or chainsaw or a boat engine
or something like bush and just instantly this big surge of energy that was not really needed or wanted was not welcome. And it was uncomfortable. Well, that's an understatement it was. So it was absolutely awful.
Then the heart's racing, pumping. And there's a whole ways to read his fight or flight, fight or flight or work on about fireflies reading books, is to fight or flight. Like you're being chased by a lion, or in the old days, chased by a dinosaur.
And you'd, you know, the blood would go and move from your
fingers stomach, to your legs, so that you could physically, you know, run fast. But if you've got that feeling, and you didn't do anything, it could cause you to feel really uncomfortable. And physically, like, really full of adrenaline, but not using it. I suppose an equivalent would all kind of an equivalent would be to drink coffee nonstop, and be sitting at a desk
looking at a computer screen, and I've done that as well, in the past, don't do that now. Based work. Sitting down in an office, drinking coffee. So that was almost kickstarting the adrenaline. But all I was doing was just sitting there gradually putting weight on actually, as well. But what it missed out what these books were missing out, is they
had the fight or flight. I didn't have freeze. More recently, the books are including that a little bit,
but a lot of them still don't. Fight flight. Freeze. Now I'm a freezer. Sometimes I'm a fridge advertiser, a washing machine, that's been selling, I'm afraid in the past, I've been a freezer. So I haven't fought. And I haven't run. I've just
been frozen. Not knowing what to do next. And I would say that's how I was with the first panic attack, I had the first major one. And others since then, sometimes I would run. So if I was in the bookshop, suddenly, it come over me and I'd run out of the bookshop and
I'd get out. But there's also part of me that throws a lot, what do I do? What do I do? This makes no sense. There is no Fred's. There's nothing that I'm scared of in this moment. Other than what's actually happening.
I spent two years when the only thing I was scared of was having a panic attack. The only thing I was scared of not increased the likelihood of me having them because it's almost at all I was thinking about. And we generally get what we think about. Because unconscious mind thinks that's what you want. If you're consciously thinking about doing something. So someone's always thinking about smoking cigarettes, or drinking alcohol. Chances are, that's all they're gonna want to do. And there's a very big chance, that's what they're going to end up doing,
if that's what all the thinking about. Or if you're carrying a tray full of glasses, and you're carrying them through a restaurant or whatever, or through your house. And all we're thinking about is I'm going to drop this tray, I'm going
to drop this tray. The chances of you dropping the tray have very, very high. If you're just walking through, not even thinking about it. You know just
confident that you're just going to get to where you're going and put the tray down.
The odds of you dropping the tray very, very low. Unless you got one leg shorter than the other, then that might cause a problem but you know, generally.
So with the breathing, it's not always as simple as some of the books I've read in the past some books who said, we'll just let yourself faint. If you feel you're going to faint, let yourself faint.
See what happens, you're not going to die. And almost Matter of fact, sort of mentality, which is true. Depends. Because if someone's got a heart condition or other issues that affect their breathing, or asthma, or an allergy or something like that, then ignoring it isn't necessarily a good thing. In fact, ignoring it is definitely not a good thing.
So it's worth making sure that you Okay, I'm not saying that everyone should go to the doctor.
Every time they have a panic attack, or an anxiety attack by and saying get yourself checked out, make sure you okay. Because one thing that I benefited from doing that is put my mind at ease. To know that I was there was nothing wrong with my heart, it was nothing all my
lungs have felt incredibly guilty for in my mind wasting the time of the hospital or the doctor. Or recently, the ambulance even but that wasn't really my I didn't ask the ambulance to come I was having
power palpitations in my chest a couple months back. But I've done a recording about that. But that wasn't
I didn't want the ambulance to come but it already sent it. And after they checked me out.
I felt better. There was always thought that palpitations would was making my anxiety raise. Another thing I know I shift and turn and go into different directions when
I make recordings. And yesterday, my last recording I talked about asking for help.
Finish is a good idea. To if you've got someone you can phone or someone you can knock on the door, a neighbor friend who can just sit with you, if you've got an ambulance come in, for example.
Very few people are gonna turn you away and say go away. You know, they're gonna say go sit with you till the ambulance gets here.
Or I'll help you get to the hospital. Or I'll sit with you until you calm down. You know, people are generally
really kind especially in emergency situations. If it's an emergency, and if you've got a friend family member, even if you don't feel it's an emergency, maybe still give them a call. Or if you're someone a neighbor, you can just knock on the door.
And it can almost be like a distraction. Just having someone because when I've got someone in my home, I'm kind of looking out for them. Not in like a major way but it's a call almost to kind of make sure they're okay doesn't need a drink or they you know they're comfortable.
And that's a nice little distraction. I don't go all out wanting to cook them a meal and stuff because I can feed themselves.
But I, you know this, if there's someone you can ask for help then do that.
I highly recommend that get yourself checked out, if you've been having pains in your chest, get yourself checked out.
It may well be due to the panic or if you've got palpitations, it may well be due to the anxiety. I mean, the percentage of people that get checked, get ecgs and get their lungs checked, are going to be absolutely fine. Most people in the world to get checked out are fine.
And also puts your mind at rest. And then you can deal with the anxiety as anxiety. And it reduces it because for me part of the anxiety in the past when everything's in the past isn't part of it is not knowing I've noticed that as I've got older now 49 kind of well. It could be something physical, it might not just be part of my mental makeup or part of my anxiety or stress
or depression or bipolar or whatever it might be is a physical thing. Another thing I wanted to mention is I don't know what country you're listening to this in. And but in the UK, there's been a big drive
it's almost like the press even adverts sometimes trying to it seems almost a shame the population into not going to the hospital you know, constantly talking about the amount of people that waste the hospital's time or wasted doctors time and that was focused on someone that maybe goes to the accident emergency because of course splinter. Now I'm pretty sure something like that would happen really, really rarely. And also someone does something like that and they don't need medical attention, then it's probably a mental health issue connected. You know, they need that perhaps they need other help. But maybe you don't know how to ask for it, possibly. So try try to let go of that. If it is there, within you that feeling that or shouldn't contact shouldn't call that Constant Contact emergency services. I should just be Oh, for as long as you know, and see what happens.
phone up one of the you know, NHS are phoning up a medical practitioner just a case of checked out make sure that you've okay. Because you have every right to medical care that anybody else does. And anxiety, stress, panic disorders is all mental health issues. These This is important as somebody that's got asthma or diabetes is a is a serious medical health issue that affects your life. Someone was having panic attacks on a regular basis. And you compare that to SOA diabetes, you might say well, yeah, you're not going to suffer diabetes could end up losing a limb. It's could show that you know, this is very serious medical condition.
banja other side, well treated and with a proper diet with proper medication. A person would die a data set can have a lot less time off work than someone with acute anxiety or
depression or having panic attacks. And having prolonged anxiety without doing anything, without, you know, help in getting help with a medication, or the therapy, talking therapies or it could be massages, it could be meditation, listening to an audio, finding different ways to relax, hypnosis and lots of different ways to change the way that you feel. And I always find that a gradual process, I like the gradual process on on very slow in the sense of I like things to happen gradually. You know, like, the way our puppy grows you with the puppy every day, and it grows, and you don't really notice it, but it's growing gradually. But then someone that doesn't see the puppy for two months comes in. Wow, I can't believe how big Buster is like, Oh, okay. I suppose he isn't he. And, but this happens so naturally, that you're still picking him up. And he doesn't really feel any heavier than he did when he was a baby. Although he's a lot heavier. But you've accustomed yourself, you've, you know, your bodies managed that different weight, then you become stronger in the process. So I quite like the idea of gradual, a gradual shift in, in maybe perspective towards how you used to feel regarding anxiety, stress, things like that,
to the point where you start to realize that you do actually feel different. Those moments of anxiety, the last, the last less time, the less frequent, the less severe, you can almost get to the point where your mind knows,
it's almost like to release a valve in your brain to let the stress out. But it does it automatically, you might start doing it, you know, manually to start with. And it's almost like listening to a recording like this, or doing meditation or, you know, doing a relaxation exercise could be a manual version of letting someone else stress out of the valve. So it doesn't build up. The pressure never gets an opportunity to build up to the point that would lead to
an anxiety attack. And then eventually, the signals are there. So that when those feelings arise long before those feelings arise,
the valve automatically opens, lets that stress out, release that stress automatically. So that the level had never get anywhere near as high as it used to. So maybe you know the level used to be a 10. And then the anxiety attack would happen. And you might not be aware that it was a 10
what the anxiety does, he actually was a great warning is unpleasant. an unpleasant warning place is a really useful thing. Because it's telling you in fact, it's demanding your body your mind is demanding of you that it's no longer allowed to get their high one out allow your stress levels to go as high as it used to. And anytime it gets maybe it doesn't even allow you to get to it. And anymore. And that's I think how panic seems to work, and why maybe lasts a little while. And I noticed that I went from being able to deal with really quite high pressure sales was working sales. So I was 10. And I could function on a 10. Fine. And then after having the anxiety attack, and having subsequent ones, I couldn't even get to an eight,
or they're having an anxiety attack. And then a seven was triggering it. Six was Trigon. discomfort. So by having that Valve learning to manually open the valve, it means that the stress level never gets anywhere near the point. Which can trigger those feelings that used to have with anxiety attacks and panic attacks. The pressure can't get that high, it's unable to physically unable to.
You couldn't even will it, you know, it's just you can't, it just can't happen. Because you've got that safety valve automatically, is continuously letting out the stress throughout the day and throughout the night. Unconsciously it's just letting it out
is almost you could say like having two doors, back door and the front door by fopen. And the wind's blowing through. If you had just one, one door open, the wind would kind of get caught a little bit. But when you've got that both the window, both the doors open, back door and the front door.
You've just got air going through the whole time. And even the worst fall cannot linger with that air continuously going through. Which means the pressure, what there is no pressure is continuously releasing. So when you focus on your breathing, I talked about getting stuff checked out making sure that you're physically okay
to give yourself peace of mind. Once you know that you're physically Okay. Then, and you listen regularly listen every day to recording and something happens. And it's quite weird the way it works. certain ideas, start to stick. Some that you'll think about some that you'll kind of keep thinking about and wonder why? Why am I thinking about that? others they just sink deep in and you never have to think about it again. But those changes have been made within you. So that that valve is continuously releasing the stress. Because we're all got stress, we're always gonna have stress in our bodies and in our minds. It's part of being alive and we need a degree of stress in order to function
and exposes good stress and there's bad stress. But we can just call it stress, we can just call it being alive. It's about feeling comfortable. It's about being able to function to feel relaxed in your body, but at the same time feeling strong, feeling healthy, feeling unwell. Being able to think without a race in mind, you know, but not to just think calm Normally, but also maybe quickly at the same time. I everything I do is quite slow. And pa days, purposely, pa days because I was just born slow.
In a way I just move slowly, talk slowly. Kind of maybe I think slowly, I don't know. And my brain seems quite okay, but I'm quite slow. And I feel comfortable like that. I'm not someone to rush around
and want to do rush around. It doesn't feel pleasant to me. That brings to another thing. What is your natural disposition? Are you doing something that goes against what you would naturally do? Are you racing around when actually, you're naturally someone that would perhaps take a bit more time. But the reason you're rushing around is because you're not
giving yourself enough time to take time to do those things. So maybe you get in our bed a little bit later. So if you've got our bed half an hour earlier, you can eat your breakfast slower, and you could maybe walk to the train station instead of practically running. We could get to work. In times, you can get prepared, rather than get in there and rushing around and you know, get already really quickly. So things like that. I find cause stress, unwanted stress. So don't do it. I said know someone years ago, and he lived in the house he lived in. And he would get up at least two hours before he left for work. And it was his favorite time of the day. It got very early in the morning, if it was on an early shift.
So let's say you started work at six or seven, he got up at four in the morning,
come downstairs, have some breakfast at a coffee and just relax and do whatever we wanted to do for those two hours. You'd have a nice long
shower and just take his time and then go to work. And he said it was so relaxing to do that. Because when he got to work, he felt calm.
That's not going to be for everyone because not everybody wants to be getting up at four o'clock in the morning. Or no I don't
it's finding what works for you. Finding your own I suppose your own pace isn't there. You know people say like running pace, people have a pace where they run that's comfortable that kind of fits their body and their their health their their pulse rate you know kind of feels right.
sauce think that anxiety can come along. When we almost go against ourselves. We try and live against what unnatural I would say comfort zone is but I think the word comfort zone can represent someone being lazy and being limited and you know,
I don't I don't mean it in that way. There's nothing wrong with being comfortable. Nothing wrong with being relaxed. How could being comfortable and being relaxed. How could that be a dirty word.
Being comfortable, relaxed is not been doesn't mean being lazy. So if you're comfortable and you're in your zone where You feel good, you feel relaxed and you feel how you want to feel, then the chances are your body and your mind will not react or not cause you to feel anything other than a degree of pleasure and comfort. When it comes to breathing, it's also worth remembering. In the same way that sleeping is something that we born naturally able to do. And breathe in is another thing is just the most natural thing. And providing there's no underlying physical issues you're going to breathe long as your airway passage is clear, you're going to be able to breathe. And the breathing will change. It may feel like it's going really fast. Eventually, it will slow down. Listen to me if you've got fast breathing, because after listening to me for a while your breathing will slow down. Because I'm talking so slowly, I guess. It's a very, very slow pace. With all of my recordings, my breathing slows down. When I make a recording. I feel relaxed, and calm. Sometimes when I'm doing asleep sessions, I do literally fall asleep.
Which is not really what I want to do, because I wake up and I've got to Okay, so was I snoring, I didn't listen back to see fopen snoring and stuff so I can edit it out.
So when it comes to the symptoms, of course, if you read a book or if you go online, it's going to give a list of
symptoms that you may have, but we're all different. And you could address each one separately. Once you address one, the others reduce because it doesn't have the power. And also if you think about it, so you've got
let's say you've got the sensors, maybe sweating, palms, raising nausea, speed in mind, whatever, start splitting them up, literally in your mind split them up, and they're no longer touching each other, they've no longer got the
energy they had before. So they can't actually operate on their own. To the extent that they did before they lose their power.
Or once they lose their power, they can't affect you. Just in the same way, if you take a light bulb out, the room goes dark, or the light bulb goes out the very least. And nothing you do is gonna get that light bulb to turn on.
Unless you plug it back into a socket designed for that light bulb. Or for a light bulb you know. You can hold it above your head, you can put it on the floor, you can do the rain dance around. No difference because the power has been disconnected from that light bulb. He can't do anything on its own. In the same way an anxiety attack kind of needs all those bits together. start separating them and they're not they no longer work. Move the sweaty palms to one side, on their own take you away from the other stuff. Your palms just get dry again. Someone has a dry mouth, move that just to one side just to dry mouth. And you start to have saliva in your mouth again is saw signs to come back to normal. The heart rate, if it's an increased heart rate, move that just to one side, separates it from all the other stuff. Just do that on its own, like the light bulb, take it out,
put on the carpet. It doesn't do anything on its own, it just goes back to normal is standard state of a normal light bulb. It's normal state is just off
is not attached to anything. It doesn't just does what it does. It's just there. Your heartbeat just goes back to normal. And you feel okay. The racing mind if you feel like mind's racing, move there, separate from all the other stuff. Again, like the light bulb, just put on the floor and look
at it and say let's use all right, things start to slow down. As with the breathe in as well. Just separate them from each other. The old analogy isn't it if you put you put a teaspoon or big heaped teaspoon of salt in a small cup of water. And he goes to drink that water out of that cup
is only one thing you're going to taste. And it's going to be pretty disgusting and it's going to be salt.
Yeah, if you fill a swimming pool up which is normal water, not chlorinated, obviously just normal
water and you put the same amount of salt, drop it in the middle of the water of the swimming pool.
You can drink as much of that water as you want. Guaranteed you won't taste any of that salt.
Sometimes it is about how you think differently about things. The causes those changes to naturally occur. And sometimes we don't even perhaps need to know what changes are necessary.
But we know the feeling. First of all, we know the feeling we don't want
and we can focus on the feelings that we do want. Because one thing we do all know, we know what it feels like to feel relaxed. We all know what it feels like to feel calm. We all know what it feels like to feel sleepy. We all know what it feels like to feel excited to feel happy. We all know what it feels like to have these emotions. These physical feelings, none of it is new. All of us have felt relaxed and calm 1000s of times probably in our life. So it's not a feeling that really needs a lot of searching for. It's accessible pretty much instantly. And you can put your trust in your unconscious mind to give you that feeling because it's they're easily accessible easily attainable always available. starting to sound like a poem. accessible, attainable, available. So I've covered a few things in this recording like I usually seem to do.
I hope the some of it's been useful. Some of the ideas you think about consciously some of the ideas will go into unconscious mind.
And changes happen. Change is going to happen anyway. Sometimes I think our unconscious mind plus our conscious mind, perhaps needs to focus on what you do want. In fact, it's not maybe i think it's it's a literal scientific fact that in order to get what you want, you need to focus on what you want. This has been proven. So if you want more comfort, you focus on having more comfort, and what it will feel like you want to feel more relaxed. You focus on how it's going to feel to feel more relaxed in the future. And how's time tomorrow tonight, almost like a rehearsal. As I said, like a sports person would do. An Olympic runner rehearses in their mind, not just physically rehearsing, but mentally rehearsing the movement of their body
winning the race. The whole process over and over again. Many many times. So I may have repeated in this record and wife said in previous recordings,
and I'm very likely to repeat in future recordings why I've said in this recording, but that's part of the process. Sometimes you can hear something 10 times this that 11th time that you hear something clicks, something changes within you. Now I'm going to go so thank you for listening. Remember to be kind to yourself because you deserve to be happy. What's up bye
