Ways To Combat Fear





Fears can be paralyzing. Whether it's fear of failure, success or even just plain old "fear," we all have experienced this feeling at some point in our lives and sometimes those fears hold us back from being truly successful! There are several ways you could go about overcoming your own personal stumbling blocks though; here is my top 8 list:



1) SEPARATE REALITY FROM PERCEPTION- Ask yourself what seems real from your perception? Sometimes we may get triggered easily without knowing why because there are so many different factors at play like emotions involved while also taking into account past experience with similar situations; this takes awareness which starts when first identifying where these triggers come from.



2) IDENTIFY THE TRIGGER- A trigger is anything in a situation that makes us feel upset or anxious. Learning how to identify our triggers will help fight back against them so they don't take control of us again.



3) KNOW WHERE FEAR LIVES IN YOUR BODY- The body is a precious and amazing organ, capable of so much more than we ever know! It affects people in different ways; for some it may take over physically or mentally while others only experience an emotional response. One way to get through fear? Practice gratitude every day - listing out one thing you are thankful for each night before bed helps shift the mind into positive light overtime which overcame any negativity from earlier on  in life. Another way to to get through fear? If you hold stress in your back, you can learn stretches, foam rolling, etc. to avoid the pain.



4) LISTEN TO YOUR INNER VOICE- Listen to the inner voice that says things like “you can do this” or “you are strong enough for this right now." Monitor your self-talk and make sure it's positive!



5) CREATE A NEW ASSOCIATION– Remind yourself of all those good moments when something has gone wrong so far, then focus on how great tomorrow will be if we keep going.



6) LOOK AT THE GLASS HALF FULL- Perception is a very powerful thing, and how you feel about your situation dictates how you respond. So think positively and you’ll give yourself a much better chance of success. This won’t happen overnight; practice with just one thought. What is one recurring negative/fearful thought you have? Work on reversing this one thought. Overtime, this will become a habit.



7) PRACTICE BREATHING EXERCISES- Breathing helps center your body; when you stop breathing, your heart stops beating. You can do a grounding exercise, or even just take 5 deep, long breaths at any point to calm and center yourself. It is best to start your day with this, but feel free to practice all day long.



8) CREATE A SAFE SPACE- When you feel safe and secure, there is no room for

fear. Find a place in your mind that will soothe you when ill feelings begin- whether this be an actual location such as the beach or somewhere inside our heads like an armchair by the fireplace with some hot cider on hand just waiting! This sense of comfort creates calmness which allows one to face their fears without getting held back from reaching goals they set out last year; don't let fear hold onto what could have been if only we started implementing techniques early enough.
