How do you free yourself from anxiety in 4 steps

We all have felt anxious sometimes in our lives. It is only human to feel nervous, worried, and anxious. We all do so at times when we face various challenges and tribulations. However, if you frequently experience anxiety and it affects your daily routine and living then there is a problem.

What is anxiety?

Anxiety is an emotion characterised by an unpleasant state of inner turmoil, often accompanied by mental, emotional and physical symptoms such as nervous behaviour, restlessness, tension, stress, panic attacks, or an inability to relax and concentrate. Some of the physical complaints are typically back or neck pain, insomnia, and chronic fatigue. Suffering prolonged anxiety can also result in the development of addictions, deterioration in health, difficulty in relationships, decrease in performance, career and overall quality of life.

What causes anxiety?

Some reasons for our fears are conscious, those you know about, and others are subconscious, those you are unaware of, but the feelings for both surface independently of your awareness. There are a few factors that can cause anxiety.

One of the main causes of anxiety is how you cope with life, whether it’s inherited or learned.

For example, you may subconsciously think and believe that to expect the worst is to be prepared for the worst.  The problem with such thinking and belief is that whilst the brain thinks it is protecting you and makes you survive by keeping you on your toes in a constant state of fear by focusing on and imagining the worst… to be prepared and ready for a fight or flight. It is damaging as this belief is causing you to imagine, projecting and exaggerating risks, or danger that keeps you continuously negative and anxious. Feeling this way paralyses your power and freedom to take actions and to be free. To sum up, subconsciously you may think: feeling anxious keeps me alive but the reality is it’s stopping you from living.

Another cause for anxiety can be unresolved traumatic life experiences showing themselves through symptoms of anxiety.

In all cases, fear, anxiety and worries are fuelled by negative thoughts and beliefs. Anxiety and fear are often triggered by uncertainty, unpredictability, vulnerability, judgment, rejection, and being alone – the basis of which is a need to avoid being hurt.

The basis for the triggers of anxiety – is your own thoughts and beliefs of helplessness, powerlessness, separateness, worthlessness, inadequacy, low self-belief and lack of self-confidence.

Despite the conscious awareness of the adverse effect of negative beliefs and thoughts in making you feel anxious or even ill, your brain holds on to them to protect you from getting hurt. This makes it harder to change negative thinking patterns with positive thinking alone.

How do you free yourself from anxiety?

  1. Become aware and stop your limiting thoughts. Workout the basis for your feelings of anxiety and fear. With the conscious understanding of your fear causes, you will gain clarity and more self-control. Normally reality isn’t what the thoughts of fear represent. For this ask yourself – what is my fear about? What do I fear? What is the worst thing about what I fear the most? Question your subconscious until you reach the root of your subconscious belief or thought. 
  2. With the clarity about your fear – you have visibility. Embrace the imagined or real reasons for your fear. If you run away from fear, you will continue to be chased by it. If you face the fear, you will free yourself from it.  By facing fear, you will overcome it. By accepting the fear, you will let go of it. Accept what you cannot change with the belief and faith that you’re ok and will always be ok. Let go of any resistance. Do not fear your fear.
  3. Know you have total control over your emotions and thoughts. Only through total acceptance of the situation or the worst can you embrace the feeling and process it.
  4. Silence your mind. Calm your mind by focusing on something soothing, meditate, or simply focus your eyes on a fixed spot for 5 minutes without moving and thinking.
