9 Proven Tricks for Overcoming Anxiety and Fear

Anxiety is just a bummer, right? So get rid of it. In an article for Business Insider, Drake Baer shares nine fast tips to make a better life:

  1. Breathe deeply, because it tells your nervous system to relax.
  2. Incrementally expose yourself to things you fear, until they become less frightening.
  3. Recognize when your anxiety is irrational and set it aside.
  4. Spend time with friends, as their support reduces anxiety.
  5. Exercise to protect yourself against the effects of stress.
  6. Reframe anxiety as excitement.
  7. Look at the big picture to look past small worries.
  8. Take a pause now and then to recognize that your life is pretty okay.
  9. Consciously trivialize tasks when they do not go well, so failure does not sting as badly.
