Sometimes, working through your thoughts logically can help. For instance, if you're in a room and the room seems to start closing in or feeling tight, try to think about the actual air flow. There's probably a form of ventilation, there's a lot of air within the room, and the people in that room aren't using all of the oxygen they inhale; part of the oxygen in the air that is inhaled is exhaled as waste. So, there's no risk for suffocation at all. Thinking through something logically and looking for areas you can use that conflict with your negative thoughts is one way to help you cope when you start to feel an anxiety attack come on.
