1. Acknowledge your anxiety response is not abnormal; stop dwelling on what’s wrong with you. Understand that anybody who experiences the symptoms that you have most likely would respond the same way – become anxious. What is different is that some people have symptoms that are recurring, while others don’t. However it is important to understand that people who are experiencing these symptoms are responsible for their symptoms.
9. Be content; unsatisfied with what one has can creates stress. Learn to appreciate what you have. If you wanted something but didn’t get it, look on the bright side. Instead of focusing on the end result, focus on the process and experience and know that you’ve learned something valuable.
10. Utilize support, whether from family, friends, or a professional. Having a solid support team who you can be open and honest with can make this process a team effort and more manageable.
