If you want to be light, you have to let go”
Whatever it is that scares you or holds you back from being free or freer, there are always way to over that that annoying anxiety.
Sometimes taking time out from everything around can be good for you emotionally and physically. Adrenalin is the worst when your in your worst state; sweaty palms, over-reacting, confusion and over racing mind.
Distracting yourself for 10 or 20 minutes can help to calm you down and bring you back to earth. Hot baths, cups of tea and meditation will also help you to calm your nerves and to be easy for a little bit.
Quiet the mind and the soul will speak
Another great to to overcome fear is asking yourself, “What’s the worst that can happen?”
I mean really whats is the worst? When you’re anxious about something – be it work, a relationship or an exam – it can help to think through what the worst end result could be. Even if a presentation, a call or a conversation goes horribly wrong, chances are that you and the world will survive. Sometimes the worst that can happen is a panic attack. And a night in the ER is seriously not worth it.
2 other great ways to ease your mind and overcome whatever it is that is keeping you so anxious is, Exposing yourself to the fear and then welcoming the worst.
Expose yourself to the fear
Avoiding fears only makes them scarier. If you panic one day getting into a lift, it’s best to get back into a lift the next day. Stand in the lift and feel the fear until it goes away. Whatever your fear, if you face it, it should start to fade.
Welcome the worst
Each time fears are embraced, it makes them easier to cope with the next time they strike, until in the end they are no longer a problem. Try imagining the worst thing that can happen – perhaps it’s panicking and having a heart attack. Then try to think yourself into having a heart attack. It’s just not possible. The fear will run away the more you chase it.
And lastly my awesome people, BE REAL!
Fears tend to be much worse than reality. Often, people who have been attacked can’t help thinking they’re going to be attacked again every time they walk down a dark alley. But the chance that an attack will happen again is actually very low.
Similarly, people sometimes tell themselves they’re a failure because they blush when they feel self-conscious. This then makes them more upset. But blushing in stressful situations is normal. By remembering this, the anxiety goes away.
After its all said and done my people, Reward yourself, do the very things you were fearing repeat the the very things that’s brought the anxiety in the first place; when you get through it with a breeze, remember I can do it.
