MANAGING YOUR EVERY DAY STRESSES AND ANXIETIES
Looking for all of the answers in how to manage your persistent
anxieties and stresses? As an author of a managing fear book, I
found it difficult to find all of the answers in managing my
anxieties. Although I am a layman and not a professional, I have
interviewed many psychologists and clergyman and I have over
fifteen years of experience in dealing with fear.
As a result, here is a brief list of techniques that a person can
use to help manage their every day stresses and anxieties.
Sometimes, we get stressed when everything happens all at once.
When this happens, a person should take a deep breathe and try to
find something to do for a few minutes to get their mind off of
the problem. A person could take a walk, listen to some music,
read the newspaper or do an activity that will give them a fresh
perspective on things.
Another technique that is very helpful is to have a small
notebook of positive statements that make us feel good. Whenever
you come across an affirmation that makes you feel good, write it
down in a small notebook that you can carry around with you in
your pocket. Whenever you feel anxious, open up your small
notebook and read those statements.
When facing a current or upcoming task that overwhelms you with a
lot of anxiety, the first thing you can do is to break the task
into a series of smaller steps. Completing these smaller tasks
one at a time will make the stress more manageable and increases
your chances of success.
In dealing with your anxieties, a person should learn to take it
one day at a time. Instead of focusing on exaggerated assumptions
that may or may not happen, focus on the present and rely on the
facts of the present situation.
Our anxieties and stresses can sometimes get the best of us,
however there are many helpful resources available to us. It
might take some hard work and persistence, but it is possible to
find those answers in managing your anxieties.
