A Guide to Surviving These "Uncertain" Times: 7 Ways to Handle the Fear

If you find yourself anxious and stressed, here are 7 tips for surviving these uncertain times and overcoming the fear that surrounds us.

"The Only Thing We Have to Fear is Fear Itself" ~ F.D.R.

I made the mistake this morning of reading the newspaper. Waking up with enthusiasm and energy for new ideas for my business, I read the gloom and doom, the predictions of scarcity, and felt myself beginning to question my ideas for changing course in these "uncertain" times.

Ironically, the energy from the collective fear is creating the very outcome that we fear! Reactionary response is causing chaos. The more we follow the illusion that's being created by others, instead of looking at what we are capable of creating, the closer we get to falling into the abyss, along with everyone else.

If you find yourself anxious and stressed, here are some tips for surviving these "Uncertain" times:

1. Seek support from like-minded people. Not those who are tied into the fear, but those who are looking at a bigger vision, who are working for positive change, who are willing to create something that will empower others, and in the end empower themselves.

2. Look forward, not back. A large part of human suffering stems from our unwillingness to accept what is. What has happened has happened. You can't change it, so focus your energy on what CAN be done. Find ways to move forward into a new reality, even if you don't like it. The faster we adapt, the faster we reduce suffering.

3. Channel your fear. If you are overwhelmed by your emotions, express them. Find good support through friends, family, and community. Instead of being fearful, focus on what you can do to change outcomes, yours, your community's, your country's.

4. Learn stress management techniques. Read a book, take yoga, learn meditation or breathing techniques, whatever helps you from storing the energy in your body and creating more reasons for stress. Think of it as preemptively keeping you in a good space to handle whatever is on the horizon.

5. Focus on the moment. How do you know you are living in fear? If you are regretting the past or anxious about the future, you are not in the moment, and that means you are in a place of fear. Joy can only be felt in the present. Outside of the moment, and, I guarantee, you are in a place of fear.

6. Stop Reading/Watching the News! Feel your energy when you watch or read about what's going on in the world. If you believe in the law of attraction, the energy you are feeling is what you will bring more of into your life. This isn't doing anyone any good, not for you, not for your family, not for the world. Put down the paper, shut off the T.V., and step away!

7. Go Back to the Basics. Everything that I've suggested is very simple. What is happening in the world is a wake-up call. We must begin to ask ourselves, what is important? All the money in the world won't give us true happiness. It's the simplest things that bring the greatest joy. Do what comes natural and free of fearFree Web Content, and you will find the riches you seek.
