5 Tips On How I Overcome My Fears

Here is a brief list of techniques that a person can use to help manage their most persistent fears and every day anxieties.


When facing a current or upcoming task that overwhelms you with a lot of anxiety, the first thing you can do is to divide 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.


Sometimes we get stressed out when everything happens all at once. When this happens, a person should take a deep breath and try to find something to do for a few minutes to get their mind off of the problem.  A person could get some fresh air, listen to some music, 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 makes you 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.  .


Learn to take it one day at a time. Instead of worrying about how you will get through the rest of the week, try to focus on today. Each day can provide us with different opportunities to learn new things and that includes learning how to deal with your problems.

  • I find these advice pretty helpful, especially cutting the worry in smaller pieces and focus on one at the time. I found it pretty helpful when I needed to study for an exam and I was sure I was going to fail because of the material quantity: I'd divide everything and since the chapter weren't that big, the workload seemed more manageable that way and I stopped worrying so much. The last one is something I need to work more though, I worry so much about things that will occur instead of focsing in the present, and everything seems overwhelming.
  • Thank you for this. I have severe phobias that I allow to prevent me from doing many things. I  want to get better and I want to do things but I am literally terrified. I need counseling to help me I believe anyway. I think this is very helpful and thank you for posting this. Thanks again!
