It is disheartening when you have everything else ready but fear keeps you away from it!
You are unable to live happily because you are intimidated about the idea of imminent death. You can’t present your seminar the way you want it because you can’t face your listeners. You are hesitating to propose because you fear the unknown. You want to go to the best college to graduate but you are afraid to leave your home. You are so anxious and nervous about the examination that in spite of your hard work you don’t fair well. You are afraid to make a choice because you can’t predict the outcome. Some of us have the fear of open spaces, fear of certain settings, discomfort in traveling and so on. We admit it or not, we are phobic about one thing or the other deep inside us.
When you are anxious you hardly have any control over your body responses. You become breathless, sweaty and nauseated. Your heart palpitates, you develop a dry mouth and shake all over feeling cold and weak. Anxiety becomes a real problem when it interferes with your day-to-day life making small things like being in a crowd or on a stage, impossible. But once you are worried, you are worried forever. It becomes a habit and you keep on worrying about things one after the other. You gradually find yourself stressed out and less happy.
Well, it is useless to think of an ultimate solution for anxiety, worry and fear. It is so because they come and go in different phases of our life. But, you should always have a quick fix for your problem.
Here are a few ideas which will help you to minimize your discomfort.
