How To Transform Your Anxiety Into Opportunity

If you suffer from anxiety or panic attacks, there are ways you can transform that anxiety into opportunity. These strategies are rather like turning lemons into lemonade. What you start out with is sour, but what you end up with is sweet!

These tips can help you deal with your anxiety in positive ways. Plus, they can even help reduce it by providing you new outlets for your nervous energy.
Here are some techniques to help you transform your anxiety into opportunity:
1.    Re-focus your excess energy. If you have the excessive energy that comes with anxiety and its moods, focus this energy toward doing something productive.
  • For example, you may have been putting off doing some household tasks, such as cleaning out those closets. Putting your energy into one of these projects will enable you to get it done in record time!

  • While you might have to concentrate harder to re-focus, you’re actually lowering the anxiety level in your body.
2.    Write about your anxiety. Write down everything you’re feeling. Many times you’ll be surprised at what you’ve written and find you can share it with others or use it to help you in the future when you’re overly anxious.
3.    Exercise. We all have said month after month that we’re going to start a new exercise regimen, but have we? Probably not, but you can use your anxious energy as the force that propels you to start your new exercise routine.
  • Have an exercise routine already planned so you have it ready to begin the moment you need it.

  • The endorphins your body releases during exercise can actually stop an anxiety attack.
4.    Try painting. Although painting a picture of pretty trees may help you, this particular technique refers to room painting! Painting has long been known to relax people.
  • If you have a room that could use a new look, get out the paint and start painting.

  • Any big home improvement project can get you involved, diminish your panic feelings, and give you a sense of accomplishment when you’re done.
5.    Sing. Even if you don’t possess the voice of a musical superstar, the way your body reacts when you sing, the force of breathing in and out, is a natural way to heal panic attacks.
  • Focusing your excess energy on playing a musical instrument, or learning how to play one, can also help your anxiety. Turn your anxious time into a musical time.
6.    Help others. Volunteer at a family shelter or senior center. Focusing on helping others can use some of that excess energy, take your mind off your worries, give you a different perspective on life, and bring you satisfaction.
7.    Do something about it. Find ways you can help solve particular problems you worry about. Any worrisome issues you have can be handled this way. 
  • For example, if you worry about the environment, you can start a recycling center or hold green meetings in your home to discuss ways you can reduce your personal carbon footprint.
These are just a few of the ways you can transform your anxiety into opportunity. Try some of these strategies today to help you use that excess energy in a positive way and reduce your anxiety at the same time.

Let me first say I have followed your Mentorship program for two years now and I know what an amazing teacher you are already, but it was only once I started the Kaizen Challenge that I realized how deep your knowledge is.

Wealth Insight 2010-01-01 Something to stick on your fridge No, it’s not a fat photo. It’s a list of some health basics that, if you follow them in 2010, can make a lifelong difference to your health. As always the truth is very simple yet somehow a great surprise. Here goes! Margarine is not a health food. Nor is any processed supermarket cooking oil. Your best bets are olive oil, coconut oil and believe it or not, saturated fats like butter. Processed carbohydrates like... Read more...

If I can describe it in this way what the Kaizen Challenge has meant to me. Previously in my life it felt like I was work in the change room of the bokke cleaning their boots for them and working hard for them. In Kaizen challenge I have started to see that I am part of the bok team and I am starting to run out of the tunnel and seeing the daylight, the field and Read more...

To think back 49 days is to realize “that you do not know what you don’t know”!  To now, for the first time in my life, discover the truth and nothing but the truth, is fantastic!  We know that the oldest trick the devil uses, is to take the truth and twist it a little bit – I call it the hamburger effect:  Nice, attractive lies, the twisted truth, covered by some more nice, attractive lies….and we fall for it every time? Read more...
