“The Only Thing We Have to Fear is Fear Itself” Franklin Delano Roosevelt

One of the key components of Wellness is Emotional Well-being. Emotions themselves are a good thing, but often in life when we become over-stressed our emotions get out of balance. Two emotions that I struggle with in my quest for wellness are fear and anxiety.

Fear is an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat.

Anxiety is a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome.

One of the best methods of coping with anxiety is exercise. Running especially helps me keep my anxiety under control. Something about getting outside and experiencing the wonder of nature helps put things in perspective. Many people use their hobbies to help ease anxiety. Meditation and Yoga are great remedies. I came across an article you may want to peruse to help with additional suggestions to ease anxiety, by clicking the link below:
