How To Overcome Fear


Fear is a powerful emotion and can be a driving force for both positive and negative actions. Fear is an essential part of life. Without it, people would take dangerous risks that could potentially harm themselves or others. However, this same emotion can also be crippling. 

When a paralyzing fear becomes a pattern in our lives, it can prevent us from living life to the fullest and hold us back from new experiences and opportunities. The path of overcoming fear includes acknowledging these limiting beliefs and taking small actions to challenge them. 

Lai Tattis has helped countless clients overcome their fears, achieve their goals and start living a life they love. In this post, we will discuss the top tips to help you overcome your fear.

What Is Fear?

To overcome your fear, you must first understand what it is and recognise that it is a normal evolutionary response. When we encounter a threat to our emotional or physical well-being, it triggers a reaction designed for survival. However, in a modern world, our bodies respond with fear in many situations even if there is no danger. 

Identify Your Fears

Overcoming fear is a problem-solving challenge. What is making you afraid? Is it a situation, person or specific event? Observe your thoughts, emotions and bodily responses and write down what comes to mind. By being as specific as you can, you can learn to identify patterns and the root cause of your fear.

Focus On Breathing

The first response to fear is automatic. Your body reacts immediately and your heart rate increases. Deep breathing can help you calm down, think clearly and act rationally. Place one hand on your chest and the other on your abdomen or stomach. This will allow you to feel your breath more distinctly as it flows through your body. Breathe in slowly and deeply through your nose. Hold for five seconds and exhale slowly through your mouth.

Practice Mindfulness

Practicing mindfulness can help you become more aware of your thoughts and emotions. This is an important step to changing your thinking patterns and building a better life. Meditation is one of the best ways to practice mindfulness. To simplify it, sit in a quiet place with your eyes closed. Breathe slowly and pay attention to your breathing while clearing your mind. Doing so raises your self-awareness, and it prevents you from doing the typical things you do when you experience fear.

Professional Support

There is no shame in admitting you need help. If you are struggling with fear, an outside perspective of a qualified Hypnotherapist can be invaluable for your personal growth and to build confidence in your ability to overcome obstacles.

Hypnotherapy for fear is an effective way to change the way you think and behave. It can help you gain confidence, overcome your fears and start moving towards a better life
