1. Recognize that there is nothing wrong with you nor how you are feeling. Anxiety is a a very common emotion.
2. Be grateful. Science as proven that being grateful can change your state of mind from fear and anxiety to calm. Look around and find one thing you can feel grateful for. What’s another?
