Don’t use Courage to Fight your Fear

When we’re scared, we often pluck up our courage to fight the fear…

However, this is not the right way to do it.

I’ve just read a book about this.

According to the author, our bodies are designed to have fear in order to have a fight or flight response to protect ourselves. For example, our ancestors had to have this fear mechanism so they knew what to do when faced with danger, like facing a lion.

However, if we always use courage to fight this fear, this natural response, we will tire ourselves out and exhaust our energy.

The right way to do it is to confirm our own safety, giving ourselves a safety cure:
– Listen to a soothing voice, like a parent trying to soothe a child
– Listen to soothing music
– Meditate, and visualise ourselves in a happy place

What do you do to overcome your fear?
