How to overcome issues with anxiety/panic attacks for good?

I feel like most people who struggle with this end up letting bad habits (like staying home and not going out and enjoying life) become normal for them which only empowers the anxiety and panic attacks. What are some ways to actually overcome it? I would imagine it is a process. There is no "cure" for it without changing your whole outlook and reconditioning your thoughts to be more positive and centered/balanced.

Like everything it is a process. 

You have to consistently be placing yourself in uncomfortable situations to become more comfortable with them. 

You can practice grounding yourself through yoga, meditation, or breathing exercises. You can use those techniques when things start to get hard in your uncomfortable situation to bring you back to center.

Whatever you are scared of doing, do it on a weekly basis. Take baby steps. Eventually you will feel comfortable. Then you want to increase from there. Just make adjustments every time you are too comfortable and you will see progress in just a few months, I promise.

Most people seem to recommend CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) which uses exposer to help. Similar to what Ella said but usually done with a professional. There are self-help books on the subject but I think for those who have severe anxiety and panic attacks, it is best to start out with someone who can coach you through it.

I think the big way to combat that, is to face your fears. Sometimes when you're in a panic, facing your fears can help you get over it. Of course, that's easier said than done, but I think for the most part, people will find it a lot more helpful to face their fears, rather than letting it bring you down.

Exposure therapy works for most people. You just have to find someone you can trust to help you go through it. Like Sophia mentioned, this is best handled with a professional who has experience with helping people overcome anxiety and panic attacks.
