We are human-beings and we tend to overact in certain situations. As Mark Twain once said, "courage is not the absence of fear, it is the ability to control it." One way of learning to stay calm is by thinking about what is really happening vs. what you think is happening. This approach tends to separate the wheat from the chaff, so to speak.
When faced with panic, take a deep breath. Hold that breath for 3 seconds, release and breath out and repeat. During anxious moments try to keep perspective. Take a step back observe your surroundings. This will help you to assess the real dangers, so you can create an action plan. Distracting yourself is another good way of gripping fear by the unmentionables. The important fact to remember, is that everything exists on a mental level. If you conquer your mind, you will conquer your deepest and darkest fears.
