Four steps to releasing fear


Four steps to releasing fear

Identify your fears- You can’t change if you don’t know what you’re afraid of. The first step to releasing fears is being self-aware of what they are.

1. Our fears are based in the past and assuming our past equals our future, that is a myth. We have control over this. We are predicting and assuming a future based on our past which causes anxiety of our future. Start living in the moment. Learn from past but don’t stay there. Use your past a teachable/learnable moment. Ask what you can take away from a past experience – what did you learn? What’s the lesson? How can I change?
2. Challenge your fears – is today’s fear realistic or based on the past? Are you truly fearful of the present situation or just assuming it will turn out like a past experience?
3. Surround yourself with positive people. People’s moods and emotions are contagious – their fear and negativity can rub off on you and drain you.
4. Mindfulness- be mindful of each situation. To be mindful of a situation means to be conscious in the moment, to get off autopilot. To be in the here and now. Mindfulness also helps you to follow intuition and trust yourself which helps reduce fear and stress.
