2. Face Your Fears
If you worry constantly, you may purposefully stay in your comfort zone. Search for opportunities to stretch your mental boundaries in ways that aren't highly stressful. You'll strengthen your mental fortitude by becoming more accustomed to taking on challenges even when dealing with your nerves. Give yourself greater challenges to increase your ability to handle them.
- Purposefully put yourself into situations you aren't sure about to overcome the habit of shying away from things that stress you. This helps build your confidence. The more steps you take outside of your comfort zone, the more prepared you'll be when the real challenges of life cause you to feel anxious.
Whenever possible avoid stagnation because your body was made to move. That’s why if you sit at a desk all day, you'll likely face greater challenges with worry and stress than someone who's always on the move. Exercise provides stress relief by giving you an outlet for frustration and boosts your overall self-confidence. Overall, exercising helps create a peaceful feeling and less anxiety on a consistent basis
