8 Techniques to Conquer Fear
BY SOPHIA BELL
1. UNDERSTAND AND EMBRACE FEAR
Fear exists to keep us safe It is neither intrinsically good nor negative but a tool we may use to improve our decision-making.
2. NAME THE FEAR
Declare your fear aloud, put it in writing, or concentrate on it.Your fear intensifies as you attempt to ignore it. It contracts when you face it.
3. THINK LONG TERM
Your short-term issue won't be resolved by thinking about it in the long run, but doing so can help you approach it more objectively and find the best answer.
4. EDUCATE YOURSELF
Get the knowledge you need to evaluate the issue based on facts rather than conjecture if your worry is based on a lack of information.
5. BE WILLING TO PIVOT
