MindWell self-help activity

You will need to print off the worksheets or download them to a computer or laptop to complete this activity.

Being more aware of how you tend to think in situations which you find difficult or stressful can help you to understand what is triggering your panic attacks and keeping them going. Complete a Panic diary to consider what you were doing and thinking before experiencing a panic attack.

Once you have identified your catastrophic misinterpretations you can use the Challenging your catastrophic misinterpretations sheet to complete the final column in your diary and challenge any frightening thoughts.

This can help you to challenge your catastrophic misinterpretations whenever you start to panic in the future.
