  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.
