By Stan Popovich

A sure way to overcoming your fears and anxieties is in finding the source of your fears and being able to manage it. In dealing with any kinds of fears or anxieties, try to learn what is the real source of your fears and anxieties.

5 tips how to find out why you`re anxious and fearful.

1.Evaluate Your Situation: A person can find the source of his or her own fears by doing some self-evaluation and also by talking to a professional. Asking yourself questions such as: Why am I afraid or What is causing my anxiety will lead you in the right direction in finding the source of your fears. Give it some time and eventually you will find the answers your looking for.

2. Learn How To Find The Answers: Once you find the true source of your fears, the next step is to find the solutions that will solve your problem. With the help of a professional, write down a list of possible techniques and solutions that you think will manage your fear and anxieties. The next step is to apply the techniques that you uncovered. Here is a brief list of some techniques you can use to help deal with your fears.

3. Take Things Slowly: Learn to take it one day at a time. Instead of worrying about how you will get through the rest of the week or coming month, try to focus on today. Each day can provide us with different opportunities to learn new things and that includes learning how to deal with your problems. When the time comes, hopefully you will have learned the skills to deal with your situation.

4. Get All Of The Facts: Sometimes we encounter a scary situation that gets us all upset. When encountering these events, always remember to get all of the facts of the given situation. Gathering the facts can prevent us from relying on exaggerated and fearful assumptions. By focusing on the facts, a person can rely on what is reality and what is not.

5. Learn From Your Current Situation: 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 take a walk to help you feel better. The next time you feel anxious you can remind yourself that you got through it the last time by taking a walk. This will give you the confidence to manage your anxiety the next time around.
