Let Go of Fear, Anxiety, and Stress and Move Forward
Are you ready to bid farewell to 2020? The last days of the year are the perfect time to say goodbye to the negative and find the positive in your life. If you’re struggling with fear and anxiety over what 2021 will bring, you’re not alone. Scroll down to read “5 Ways to Find Peace in 2021.”
But first, know you’re not alone in your journey into the unknown and make no mistake – the fear and anxiety associated with this pandemic have been devastating. According to the JAMA Network, a June 2020 survey from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of 5,412 U.S. adults, found that 40.9 percent of respondents reported “at least one adverse mental or behavioral health condition,” including depression, anxiety, posttraumatic stress, and substance abuse, with rates that were 3 to 4 times the rates 1 year earlier.
The survey also notes that fear and worry range from uncertainty about our own health and the health of our loved ones, our financial situation or job, or loss of support services we rely on. We will heal from whatever 2020 has thrown our way but at our own pace. Patience, diligence, and self-care are the keys to recovery from loss and grieving. After dealing with a devastating loss in my family this year, here are the keys I have found to unlock a positive mindset and help me deal with anxiety and fear.
5 Ways to Find Peace in 2021
- Set aside time in your day to reflect on the positive in your life.
- Record your positive and negative thoughts in a journal.
- Weigh what’s more satisfying – to be positive or negative. Choose to focus on the positive.
- Use your influence to help colleagues and business owners who are struggling.
- Reach for the sky. Put one of your business goals into play.
Look for the positive in your life. You shut the door to new possibilities when you focus on the negative.
