THE ANSWERS IN MANAGING YOUR FEARS AND ANXIETIES

for all of the answers in how to manage your most persistent fears and anxieties?
I deal with fear on a personal level and I found it difficult to find all of the
answers in managing my anxieties. I read some anxiety books and talked to various
professionals, however I still had trouble dealing with certain fears and anxieties.
Eventually, I wrote a book that presents all of the ways to help manage those
hard to manage fears and is located at http://www.trebleheartbooks.com/mvStanPopovich.html
me explain the process of how I found those answers.
first went to my local bookstore to find those books that dealt with fear and
anxiety. I looked for those books that reviewed the techniques in how to manage
certain fears and anxieties. As I read these books, I wrote down some notes on
those techniques that I found most useful in managing my fears. I noticed that
each book said something different and there wasn’t always a complete review of
all the techniques to manage fear and anxiety. As a result, I started a notebook
and every time I found a technique that was useful in managing my fears, I would
write it down in my small notebook.
I talked to various professionals in the psychology and religious fields and they
provided me with additional information. Again, I would write down in my notebook
the information that the professionals gave me that I felt was most useful in
managing my fears. Some of the techniques that I was told to use was learning
how to use positive self talk, using thought stopping techniques, and breaking
a overwhelming problem into its smallest parts.
instance, I was told that I should visualize a red stop sign in my mind when I
encounter a fear provoking thought. The stop sign would remind me to stop focusing
on that thought and to think of something else. Another example, is when I conducted
my job search. Instead of looking at the job search as a whole, I broke down the
job search into many different tasks. I first developed my resume. When I completed
my resume, I began to look for companies that would hire me and I submitted my
resume. After sending out my resume, I then focused on the job interviewing process.
During my job search, I performed each of these tasks one at a time which prevented
me from getting overwhelmed.
made it a point that every time I would experience a fearful or anxiety related
situation, I would use the information in my notebook to help me. After the anxiety
would go away I figured out what techniques worked and which ones didn't work.
In every anxiety related situation I experienced, I began to learn what worked,
what didn't work, and what I needed to improve on in managing my fears and anxieties
the same time, I would continue to talk to various professionals to learn and
to become better at managing the many types of fears and anxieties. I would review
what I have learned with these professionals and they would provide me with additional
information so that I would be better able to deal with my fears in the future.
I did this research for around fourteen years and during this time, I gained a
lot of valuable information on how to manage fear and anxiety.
main point of this article is that no matter how difficult it is to manage your
fear and anxieties, the answers are out there if you look hard enough. It might
take some hard work and persistence, but it is possible to find those techniques
that work for you.
Popovich endured his share of fear and anxiety over the years. Unable to find
the help he needed, the author decided to undertake his own research. The result
is "A Layman's Guide to Managing Fear Using Psychology, Christianity and
Non Resistant Methods" - an easy to read book based on a combination of research
and personal experience. For additional information go to: http://www.trebleheartbooks.com/mvStanPopovich.html
