As fifth grade as it may sound, it helps. When you experience stress, anxiety or fear, your mind is running at lightning speed with mountains of worries. Getting these thoughts out will not only clear up some brain clutter, but you will also see the situation through clearly. When in doubt, write it down, follow it up with how it makes you feel, and of course, find a solution!

Say no to the ‘comfort zone’
If you are in a comfort zone, honey… get to walking, matter of fact, run! Every time you get out of your comfort zone and try something new, things become less fearful. After all, fear is an illusion. At lease once a week, make it a habit to try something new, something you may fear, it can be small or you can go all in!
