Want to expand your horizons, be a braver person and enjoy life to the fullest? The secret isn’t fearlessness, but admitting what scares you. You have the power to push yourself further than you ever thought possible.  To help you harness your inner strength, the experts at Travaasa have complied some tips and tricks to help you conquer your fears.

1. Face Your Fears

Naming something, anything, takes some of the power out of it. What exactly are you worried about? Write down your fears, put a name to them, and they’ll suddenly become much less powerful.

2. Trust Your Intuition

Very simply, intuition is that little voice in your head. The one you remember after the fact when you say to yourself, “I told you that you could do it.” Listen to it, obey it, and start giving yourself more credit for how capable you already are and how you can face any fear that is in front of you.

3. Walk it Out

Walking is meditation in motion, and it’s one of the best stress relievers you can practice. When you find yourself overwhelmed with fear, or anything else for that matter, take a walk. Just walk.

4. Eat Well

You can’t get over your fears if you have bad habits, especially when it comes to food. Start eating healthy today and fuel your body for fear-busting.

5. Have compassion with yourself.

Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither will your journey of overcoming your fears. These things take time. Have compassion and patience with yourself and what you are trying to accomplish. You’ll get there.
