It's Election Time: 3 Ways to Overcome Fear of the Unknown with Confidence
Worldwide, one person in every 13 suffers from a fear of the unknown, according to the World Health Organization. Are there steps we can take to help us overcome fear?
To feel afraid is a normal emotion, a vital response to a dangerous situation. When faced with danger, our bodies release certain hormones to warn and help us. Without fear, we wouldn’t have the ability to protect ourselves.
When fear persists over a long period of time, however, the result is negative and unhealthy. Long-term anxiety impairs growth, overtakes an individual’s life, and even threatens it. The rational being becomes irrational.
Join us as we talk about how to overcome this fear and three ways to deal with it in a healthy way. Learn more about Level Up at awr.org/health.
