The books I mentioned have statements in them that I find helpful but I have found that writing notes to myself is more effective. Anything you can say to yourself (in writing) that challenges the irrational escalation of fear is helpful.
I always remind myself that I've been through this a trillion times before and that nothing bad has ever happened (didn't die, go crazy, have a heart attack etc) as one of the statements. However, I can't rely on this alone and wish I could! I hope someday I'll get to the point where I can just "talk to myself" and relieve the anxety/panic but I'm not there yet.
Good Luck
