These tips will help you to overcome situations of feeling fearful, stressed or anxious.
1. Calm down
According to some studies, you can’t think straight when you are clouded with fear and anxiety. So taking time is the first and the most important thing to remember to calm down.
You have to change your physiology to change your psychology. You can walk around for a couple of minutes; you can get outside to buy something to eat n drink or you if you like to make some tea or a coffee. Goal is to distract your mind and change its state.
Let’s do this a breathing activity as breathing patterns are one of the important factors of stress management –
Stand up with both the feet parallel if you are sitting and place your feet approx shoulder width apart.
- Inhale from your nose into your belly not chest, as long as it is comfortable.
- Count slowly one to four and exhale from your mouth.
- Gentle and regular breathe is always better, do not push yourself hard to fill your belly.
- Try breathing in through your nose and out through your mouth.
- Target is to make your nerves run slower to calm down.
- Do it four to six times and you will find an instant change in your mind state.
3. Stop running away from your fear
You can avoid fear but avoiding doesn’t mean that you will not face it again. Running away is never a solution. Whatever your fear is, you start facing and it starts fading. Be innovative, take the initiative, and go extra mile. If you don’t take action to fight against your fear, you will miss all the heavenly glory and opportunities will pass you by.
4. Look at it as a situation
Fear and anxiety are situations and nothing else. Let me share an activity with you so that you can practice and use it when needed. So, imagine a normal size of circle on the ground assuming yourself the origin with all the fear that you are flooded with and then step out of this circle and leave your emotions in it. Now, look at the fear that you left in the circle, make it a situation and find the solution. Practice it and use it when you need it.
5. Stop trying to be perfect
Stress is a part of life, rather than learning how to be stress free it’s better to learn how to manage stress. Though, all of us want that our lives must be perfect but chasing perfection will lead you to a place in nowhere. Start managing your stress; try to look at the positive aspects of your life and the world around you. You will start feeling how perfect your life is.
6. Avoid Crutches
Sometimes, people adopt partying lifestyle like drinking alcohol and doing drugs to avoid anxiety. After sometime your brain will be habitual of these unhealthy habits. Your brain will not bother to fight anxiety. This is genuinely important for fighting anxiety. If you want to get over anxiety, you need to start avoiding reckless behaviors.
7. Talk about it
You are not strong enough if you don’t talk about it. Women get cancer too, but more men die from it and the reason is that men don’t talk about it and they don’t go to therapy. Language makes a huge difference. Language matters. When you talk to somebody and you say, “Here are my concerns or challenges”. Then you start reframing the emotion.
