To get rolling on your self-exploration, go to a calm and comfortable place and consider the matters that make you fearful. These matters may stem from your skin condition, weight, a bad habit, a family’s secret, abusive conduct in your family, or a guilt over something you’ve done.

Breathing deeply will activate your rest and digest system – the parasympathetic nervous system – and this will slow your heart rate and subdue your panic response.

Keep your eyes on the prize: if you can eventually eliminate fear, you can take on any challenge and succeed. You acquire character as an individual when you confront a challenge or fear.
