Stress management techniques and relaxation techniques are equally helpful and follow these:

1) Learn what panic attack is: Learning about panic attack would help in relieving the distress. It would help you in understanding your condition better and make you aware of certain facts that you were unaware of. Try to find out the cause of your fears so that your brain can resolve the issue without triggering a panic episode.
