#Control Your Fear#


Fear is an emotion that plays a significant role in our life. It can be strong and paralyzing, but it’s also necessary for our safety. When a student appearing in the exam has a fear of failure, so he works hard to clear his exam.

Yes, Fear is a natural emotion that everyone experiences at some point in their life. There can be many different causes of fear, and it can be experienced in different ways. The effects of fear can be both physical and psychological.

 It is usually triggered by an unpleasant perception of danger that may be either real or imaginary.

In fact, some types of fear we experience today are still closely linked to our instinctual need for survival, such as the common fears of heights and insects.

Yes, Fear is everywhere. We have fear in our lives, such as the loss of security on account of unemployment, retirement, the demise of companions, natural calamities, etc, But I think old age is the greatest fear. Is it not ?

Sometimes, fear is a feeling that is difficult to describe. Sometimes, It can be described as feeling scared or anxious about something that might happen. Fear can also be described as a sensation of dread or terror.

But the fact is that, when you suffer from fear or are seriously anxious, your mind and body use to work quickly.

You may experience the following symptoms:

  • Your heart beats very fast – maybe it feels irregular
  • You breathe very fast
  • Your muscles feel weak
  • You sweat a lot
  • Your stomach churns, or your bowels feel loose
  • You find it hard to concentrate on anything else
  • You feel dizzy
  • You can’t eat
  • You feel sweating
  • have trouble sleeping, develop headaches,
  • have trouble getting on with work and planning for the future.
  • You get a dry mouth
  • You get very tense muscles.

These things occur because your body senses fear, which is preparing you for an emergency. So it makes your blood flow to the muscles, increases blood sugar, and gives you the mental ability to focus on the thing that your body perceives as a threat. 

We should face our fear 

If we always avoid situations that scare us, we generally stop doing things we want to do. 

We won’t be able to test out whether the situation is always as bad as we expect. It is better to manage our fears and reduce our anxiety.

Exposing ourselves to fear can be an effective way of overcoming this anxiety.

There are so many ways to control our fear.

Learn our own Fear:

We should learn more about our fear. we should keep our thought record to note when and what happens. 

We should try to set up small, achievable goals for facing our fears. 

We should have a list of things that help when we are likely to become frightened or anxious. This can be an effective way of addressing the underlying beliefs that are behind our anxiety.

Exercise to overcome fear

Exercise is one of the best options to overcome fear. We should Increase the amount of exercise we generally do. Exercise requires some concentration, which can take our minds off our fear and anxiety. Exercise can be any type that our body suits.

Relaxation techniques

Learning Relaxation techniques can also help with the mental and physical feelings of fear. It can help just to drop our shoulders and breathe deeply. We should have to choose a relaxing place. In such a situation, I used to do my favorite yoga and meditation. Sometimes listening to Mental Health wellbeing podcasts can also be helpful.  

Healthy eating:

As we know that healthy eating is necessary for maintaining our good health. Yes, we should eat lots of fruit and vegetables that will be helpful in controlling our fear. We should try to avoid drinking too much tea and coffee, as caffeine can increase anxiety levels.

Complementary therapies:

There is some therapy that is called complementary therapies, such as relaxation techniques, that are helpful to deal with fear & anxiety. The details are available in our earlier blog.


Spirituality is also a way, that can give a way of feeling connected to something bigger than us.  Faith can provide a way of coping with everyday stress and fear. We can sit before the idol of God and meditate to sometimes that reduce our fear to some extent.

Avoid alcohol and Smoking:

It is very common that when we suffer from fear we go for an alcoholic drink which gives some relief for the moments. Some people call alcohol ‘Dutch courage, but the fact is that the after-effects of alcohol can make feel even more afraid or anxious.

Some people increase their smoking and use recreational drugs to reduce stress. However, this often makes problems worse.

Research shows that smoking may increase feelings of anxiety. Nicotine creates an immediate, temporary sense of relaxation, leading to withdrawal symptoms and cravings.



Conquering our fears is essential to living our lives in a better way.  Every opportunity might not bring success, but it will be helpful in learning new skills.

 We can’t anticipate the outcome of everything that we do. To do nothing with a fear of change could bring frustration and anxiety only.

Instead, we should take small steps, make some small changes, and staying with positivity will certainly give us confidence and get success to stay away from unnecessary fear.
