Accept Your Feelings:
Even though anxiety can be scary, you have to remember that anxiety is just a feeling.
Accepting anxiety is one of the first things you have to do if you want to overcome it.
Not Everything is as it Seems:
Anxiety or panic can be scary and take a toll on the body. It can bring on stomach aches, headaches, fatigue, the list goes on.
Just breathe and remind yourself that your panic will pass.
Question Your Thoughts:
When you’re anxious, your mind can play tricks on you and make things feel way worse than they actually are.
Just because your presentation didn’t go as planned does not mean your team thinks any less of you. Even professional speakers get nervous from time to time.
The next time your feeling overwhelmed by negative thoughts, ask yourself these questions…
- What’s the worst thing that can happen?
- If this does happen, how can I deal with it?
- Has this happened before? If so, how did I deal with it?
Focus on The Here and The Now:
Those who experience anxiety tend to worry about things that may or may not happen in the future.
Nothing in life is guaranteed. We never know what tomorrow has in store.
Focusing on the here and the now can help prevent anxiety and keep you grounded.
