Panic Day is observed next on Saturday, March 9th, 2024 (273 days from today).
Panic Day is an annual holiday celebrated on March 9th every year. Panic is a very unpleasant feeling and make us feel sad, difficult, and frightening consequences. Mass panic that occurs during public events often leads to injury and even death. That's why in stressful situations, people try to stay calm and take deep breaths to prevent panic.
History of Panic Day
When everyone say about different holidays, they might think about the simple purpose to have the joyful moments in life together. However, Panic Day was a chance for us to recognize how stressful can be in life, and then see what can you do to minimize the impacts.
Everyone knows that stress is bad for health and can even be dangerous! Stress can cause diseases like heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity.
Some people respond to stress by feeling panic, which can be debilitating. Panic can make a person feel that their fear is insurmountable. While this may seem irrational, panic takes over and makes it difficult for sufferers to make rational choices. For those who feel that their fear and stress are taking over, Panic Day is the perfect day to take a step forward and contact a mental health professional.
How to celebrate Panic Day
An interesting approach to Panic Day is to include the softer side of the concept of the day.
Some people may find it interesting to surprise your colleagues and friends with a stressful idea in the middle of the day, shouting about it, and dancing around the room. Add a few comments like "Too much!" or "Don't make me do it again!" can be an interesting premise before wishing all have a happy Panic Day!
Not up for such a public celebration? Below are some suggestions for celebrating Panic Day to refer:
Practice deep breathing
Everyone knows that breathing is vital, but stress and panic can make breathing shallow and less effective for the body. Practicing a few deep breathing exercises can help reduce stress (sometimes almost immediately!), lower your heart rate, and reduce your tendency to panic.
Try breathing deeply through your nose and out through your mouth, counting from one to five for each breath. This type of exercise reduces the risk of hyperventilation and provides much-needed rest for the mind and body.
Listen to the music happily
Sometimes panic occurs when the mind is overwhelmed by circumstances. Putting a few relaxing tunes on a tape recorder or Spotify playlist can help reduce the effects of stress. Classical, piano, or even some special binaural beats for relaxation can be perfect choices. Or a little more sly, release an album by Panic at the Disco.
Take advantage of the source of life
Make a day more personal by using it to slow down and jot down all the essentials in your moment. It may be in your best interest to cut down on the list a bit. Planning time for activities will help you relieve some of the stress in your life. Some activities that can help with this are exercise, mediation, massage, yoga or taking time to relax and enjoy with friends and family.
Start that hobby again
Do you have any hobby that you can’t arrange your time to enjoy? Why not pick it up again? Remember what you love about that hobby and make a plan to enjoy it. For those who don't have a hobby yet, this could be a great time to try something new that could become a hobby! Whether it's knitting, stamp collecting, painting, or horseback riding, a hobby can help you create joy and maintain composure during difficult times.
Make yourself a priority
Some people like to end the day by reading a book purely for enjoyment. Others try to use the time between work and home as alone time to relieve the stress of the day. Schedule some “me time” by getting a massage, going to the spa, enjoying an afternoon nap, indulging in a digital detox or dating an adult!
Perform individual concerts in the car
You may have seen these people sing on the radio as they drive! Sing along to many of the songs listed above or choose another playlist that brings out good feelings and happiness to combat those feelings of panic.
Panic day can be a day to find a fun way to dispel panic attacks. Let focus on what's going on in life and remember that everyone needs time to relax and have fun. Let try something new by yourself and enjoy a great Panic Day!
