Question and answer
Q: describe ways in which individuals and carers can be supported to overcome their fears
A: Ten ways to fight your fears Moodzone: Practical problem solving Whatever it is that scares you, here are 10 ways to help you cope with your fear and anxiety: 1. [ Take time out It feels impossible to think clearly when you?re flooded with fear or anxiety. A racing heart, sweating palms and feeling panicky and confused are the result of adrenalin. So, the first thing to do is take time out
so you can physically calm down. Distract yourself from the worry for 15 minutes by walking around the block, making a cup of tea or having a bath. When you?ve physically calmed down, you?ll feel better able to decide on the best way to cope. 2. What?s the worst that can happen? When you're anxious about something, be it work, a relationship or an exam, it can help to think through what the worst end result could be. Even if a presentation, a call or a conversation goes horribly wrong, chances are that you and the world will survive. Sometimes the worst that can happen is a panic attack. If you start to get a faster heartbeat or sweating palms, the best thing is not to fight it. Stay where you are and simply feel the panic without trying to distract yourself. Placing the palm of your hand on your stomach and breathing slowly and deeply (no more than 12 breaths a minute) helps soothe the body. It may take up to an hour, but eventually the panic will go away on its own. The goal is to help the mind get used to coping with panic, which takes the fear of fear away. 3. Expose yourself to the fear Avoiding fears only makes them scarier. If you panic one day getting into a lift, it?s best to get back into a lift the next day. Stand in the lift and feel the fear until it goes away. Whatever your fear, if you face it, it should start to fade. 4. Welcome the worst Each time fears are embraced, it makes them easier to cope with the next time they strike, until in the end they are no longer a problem. Try imagining the worst thing that can happen ? perhaps it?s panicking and having a heart attack. Then try to think yourself into having a heart attack. It?s just not possible. The fear will run away the more you chase it. 5. ]
