Getting Through The Day When Your Anxieties
Out Of Control

by Stan Popovich, Copyright 2005

That do you do when your fears and anxieties overwhelms you as

soon as you get up in the mornings? Well the first thing you

need to do is to seek the services of a professional and/or

counselor who can teach you how to manage your fears and give

you the help that you need. Until you can meet with someone,

what can you do in the meantime to cope with your fears?

The first step is to take a deep breathe and try to find

something to do to get your mind off of the problem. A person

could take a walk, listen to some music, read the newspaper,

watch TV, play on the computer or do an activity that will give

them a fresh perspective on things. This will distract you from

your current problem. Most importantly, doing something will

give you the self confidence that you can still function and

that you can get through the rest of the day.

Another thing to remind yourself is that things change and

events do not stay the same. For instance, you may feel

overwhelmed in the mornings with your anxiety and feel that

this is how you will feel the rest of the day. This isn’t

correct. No one can predict the future with 100 Percent

accuracy. Even if the thing that you feared does happen there

are circumstances and factors that you can’t predict which can

be used to your advantage. You never know when the help and

answers you are looking for will come to you.

I was told by a counselor that your anxiety and worry decrease

over time. Your anxieties may seem intense at the moment, but

that won’t be like that forever. Your worry will eventually

decrease. I asked a professional why does the worry and anxiety

decrease over time and she told me, “Because it just does”.

In every anxiety related situation you experience, begin to

learn what works, what doesn’t work, and what you need to

improve on in managing your fears and anxieties. For instance,

you have a lot of anxiety and you decide to play on the

computer to help you feel better. The next time you feel

anxious you can remind yourself that you got through it the

last time by playing on the computer. This will give you the

confidence to manage your anxiety at the present time.

Don’t forget to Pray and ask God for help. A person can only do

so much. Asking God for help can give us additional resources to

help manage our fears and anxieties. It is not always easy,

however God is in control and he will help you if you ask him.

As a Layman, I realize it is not easy to deal with all of our

fears. When your fears and anxieties have the best of you, seek

help from a professional. The key is to be patient, take it

slow, and not to give up. In time, you will be able to find

those resources that will help you with your problems.
