One thing I have learned, I mean really learned, is not to sell practicing and exercising short. While I know I have said this before, recently I have been increasing the amount and intensity of practicing facing my fears and exercising and let me tell you, I notice a difference. I have been recording the exercises and stretches that I have been doing to get through my anxiety and build self-confidence and I know that it is what is helping.
Sometimes we need to prove to ourselves that we can get through our anxiety and that we do have the strength. Practicing and exercising consistently lets us realize that we do have the ability to get through our struggles. However, we cannot grow lazy and we cannot just practice once a day and then give up. We have to keep practicing, keep working hard. I’ve been asked if working hard and consistently is worth it and I know that it is. Never stop trying!
I’ve felt wonderful the last few days and this morning, I accomplished something that made me feel great. I really believe I owe it to practicing and consistently working hard to get through my anxiety. You have the ability to get through your anxiety, you just have to keep practicing, exercising, and thinking positive!
