Use Panic Assistance audio to coach you when you experience a panic attack and to help you learn to tolerate and control the anxiety symptoms. Also, can be used to assist with exposure therapy for Agoraphobia.

The Panic Assistance audio is not a relaxation or hypnosis audio. It is meant to be firm so as to get your attention while having a panic attack. Relaxation or hypnosis audios are not very useful during a panic. They may be useful to prevent panic, but this audio is focused on reminding you that panic won't harm you and that you can tolerate the unpleasant sensations of panic.

Emotion Training audio can be used as relaxation or you can use it to learn how to access emotions such as calmness or strength when you need to. The audio trains the brain to pair the emotions with certain colors and once you have learned the process, you can elicit the emotions you desire by imagining the paired color flowing through you.

Links to articles at ExcelAtLife.com to help you understand the cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) approach for anxiety and Panic Disorder.

The general idea of CBT is to repeat rational statements that challenge the irrational fears until the rational beliefs become stronger than the fears. Since it is difficult for a person to do this while having a panic attack, the panic assistance audio in this app helps you to do this. This self-help method can provide the coaching many people need to cope with panic. However, some people may need therapeutic help in addition to this.

Use the relaxation audio to improve your anxiety management skills. Learn to reduce stress and to relax your body using Qi Gong and additional relaxation audios by Excel At Life.

Also, look for "The Worry Box" app for audio to create imagery to reduce worry and related anxiety.

Reason for permissions:

2) MODIFY DELETE SD CARD CONTENTS--necessary to allow saving data to SD card
3) FULL INTERNET ACCESS AND VIEW NETWORK STATE--necessary to determine if internet access is available when linking to articles and audios

    Diary, articles & audios are very helpful & detailed. Saved me from a panic attack today. Truly grateful. ★ONE problem: I cannot delete custom emotions! When I select emotion & intensity, then click "Delete"... nothing happens. No pop-up list to delete. Please fix so I can tweak a bit. Then 5★ for sure! Thank you very much!

    Downloaded this app during a moment of desperation while suffering with anxiety for most of the evening. I listened to the Assistance audio and feel 99% better already. Looking forward to trying the relaxation audios.
