Now, let’s talk about the 6 tips to take charge of your own mind and overcome fear.
Given the spate of terrorist attacks in multiple countries around the world, it is expected that people will respond with and be overtaken by fear and anxiety.
Fear is the anticipation of pain.
Thus, fear is always set in the future.
Fear is natural. The human brain functions to keep us safe by alerting us of potential danger, and it does so by triggering the Fight-or-Flight response.
Anxiety is the belief that one’s world is out of control, coupled with the attempt to try to control that which one cannot control.
There are some instances where anxiety is a neurological disorder rather than an emotional or psychological disorder, such as the result of a brain injury.
Fear and anxiety often also involve uncertainty.
Uncertainty creates more fear and anxiety and prevents one from the ability to enjoy life.
6 Simple tips to take charge of your own mind and overcome fear:
Terror frightens because it is (1) random, unpredictable; (2) results in many deaths in one place at one moment which, triggers greater fear because it is perceived as catastrophe and; (3) There is a belief of “It could happen to me.”
2. Conscious Awareness
Notice if you are thinking and feeling like a victim. Are you engaging less in life out of fear and victimhood? The more you encourage those thoughts of victimhood, the more helpless and powerless you will feel and, it will rob you of any possible enjoyment of life and the present moment.
