Treating Anxiety – Even More Techniques

4 Comments 13 July 2008

brain-powerThis post is concentrated with lots of Techniques try to use each of them in different scary situations.

One of the most effective techniques is to ask what is the worse that can happen? Say you have a job interview that you dread. You can ask yourself what’s the worse thing that can happen if I don’t get the job? Your answer can be something like: than I won’t work and I won’t have an income. Keep asking the question what’s the worse…? Answer: I won’t be able to afford the payments on my house, I’ll lose it and become homeless.

keep asking until your answer will be final something like I’ll die. Decide that you’re going to accept whatever final answer your going to get if needed. When we accept the worse that can happen it’s not as scary as before. Finally decide that you’re going to do whatever you can to prevent the worst case scenario and do it.

Another interesting technique is to imagine that the fear is coming out of your body with every exhale and that love and courage comes in with every inhale. Now simply breath deeply.

The next technique is highly effective and simple. Keep yourself busy. Work extra hours at work or at home, start something you always wanted. When you’re busy you don’t have time to worry and if you will persist than soon enough you will be accustomed to think in a certain non frightened way.

Sometimes we fear things that the chances they will occur are slim at best. For example you may fear that a truck with goods you transfer will get into an accident. But by checking the probability of it actually occurring out of all the drives, it usually comes down to only a few.

Most of this techniques and many more with detailed examples of the real people that used them can be found in the bestseller How to Stop Worrying and Start Living by Dale Carnegie. I think it’s a worthwhile read for anyone interested in a peace of mind and healthy attitude.

    Anxiety disorders happen for anybody but they can be treated.

    Nice article,

    Therapy can also help the sufferer to address the fears that cause anxiety and panic attacks. No matter what you may be afraid of, it still is possible to unlearn the behaviors that cause anxiety and even panic attacks. Taking the time to learn coping skills, such as imagery and relaxation, can help you learn how to stop panic attacks permanently.

    True indeed. Other therapies or techniques might really help you big time to overcome your panic attacks but what’s more effective than starting to overcome it yourself? Not to mention that it only costs your time and effort.
