Deal with negative emotions
Differentiate stress from the feeling of being overwhelmed.
If you are stressed, your body reacts against the factors that cause you distress. When you are overwhelmed, everything feels helpless. In both cases, you need to detach and recharge.
When experiencing anxiety, remind yourself this is a temporary feeling.
If you have trouble controlling your anxiety, calm your mind by reminding yourself it is a temporary situation, often imaginary. Anxiety comes from constant worrying thoughts, which must be stopped.
Allow yourself to be vulnerable.
Recognize your vulnerability and do not mistake it as being weak. Allowing yourself to heal is the first step to having the courage to overcome hardship.
