Overcome your fears and turn them into strength: 5 simple ways to become invincible!

Fears can be debilitating. They can stop us from living our lives to the fullest, experiencing the things we want and just having fun!

But there are ways to overcome our fears and turn them into strength! How?

Meditate with your fears

You don't have to sit in a still, quiet place with your eyes closed. Meditation comes in all shapes and sizes. When it comes to overcoming fears, you can also meditate by taking a walk in nature. And no, don't rush towards the goal, but take a lazy walk. Feel the fresh air, see and smell the flowers, watch the plants, animals, insects at work. All of this will help you put things into perspective, including your fears. This will help you to let them go.

Take on a bigger challenge

One you are not afraid of. Want to run a marathon? Then you better start training today. Would you like to learn to knit? Pick up a knitting needle and wool. Do you want to write a book? You better start typing. By accepting bigger challenges, which most of us are not afraid of, we prove to ourselves that we can become big, that we can be bold and that there are few things that we cannot overcome.

Nourish your mind and your body

It is a two-pronged approach. Nurture your mind first. Learn something new every day. Read books to learn and read them for pleasure. Be open to the philosophy of others. (Virtually) socialize with people who are interested in the same things as you. Keep your mind healthy and well nourished. Second, nurture your body. Eat good food, enjoy physical activities, be human in all your glory. With a "broken" body, it will be difficult for you to overcome your fears.

Start making changes in your life

It can be small changes, for example, make sure you vacuum the apartment every day or drink a cup of your favorite tea in peace on the balcony. But there can also be major changes, such as a new exercise or enrolling in a course you've been looking at for a long time. Whatever you choose: moving out of your comfort zone can be helpful when you need to prove to yourself that you can conquer virtually anything.

Positive affirmations

Don't forget to tell yourself how smart and strong you are. Remind yourself, out loud, that you can overcome all your fears. And before you know it, you'll be living and breathing this truth!

“One of the most disappointing things about this whole saga so far is that no one has had to buy in bulk. But people did that, which led to them panicking, and now some people can't even buy basic things. We are the virus. We are the weakest link. Fear and greed are our downfall." – Genesis Elijah, British rapper, on Twitter
