How to say no to be panicked.

This is Daidai.

In this article I’ll talk about what to say to people who is panicked. In English I think the words and phrases used are like these:

– Calm down.
– It’s OK or I’ll be OK or everything is going to be OK.
– Don’t be panicked or you don’t have to be panicked.
– Relax!
– Take a deep breath.

These expressions are also used in Japanese.
Let’s see the phrases used in Japan.
