4 Ways to Overcome Your Fears

“I can’t do it”, “what if…” “noooooo, never!”

Whatever it is that scares you, here are a few ways to help you cope with your everyday fears and anxieties.

1. Face it

Avoiding fears makes them more frightening. If you face your fear, it should start to fade away. It’s preferable to get back into an elevator the next day if you panic one day getting into a lift.

2. Consider the worst-case scenario

Consider the worst-case scenario, such as panicking and experiencing a heart attack. Then try to conjure up a heart attack in your mind. It is simply not conceivable. The more you chase the fear, the faster it will flee.

3. Consider a cheerful place

Close your eyes and visualise a safe and peaceful environment. It could be a photograph of you walking on a lovely beach, snuggling in bed with your cat next to you, or a joyful childhood memory. Allow the good feelings to settle you until you feel more at ease.

4. Treat yourself

Finally, do something kind for yourself. Reinforce your accomplishment by treating yourself to a massage, a country walk, a supper out, a book, a DVD, or whatever small gift makes you happy after you’ve made that call you’ve been dreading.
