How to Overcome Stress and Anxiety to Prevent Depression

Stress is a natural response of our body to conceived threats and pressures in life; while anxiety is simply a feeling of worry, nervousness or an intense apprehension of real or imagined danger. It could also be a strong wish to do something, especially if the wish is unhealthy strong; like being anxious to do the right thing. Hence,anxiety may sometimes occurs as a result of lack of confidence in self.

Both stress and anxiety are normal reactions in our body in response to stressful situations in life. They are temporary events that disappears once those perceived threats and pressures are gone. However, should they stay longer than normal, then it regressed to some form of depression.

How to Overcome Stress and Anxiety to Prevent Depression? Let us first understand why do you have this feeling of stress and anxiety? Anxiety is a symptom of the presence of doubt, and when there is doubt, fear grips in. When fear grips in, anxiety comes in. All these; doubt, fear, and anxiety are manifestations of a negative mental attitude, attracting more negative things to happen. The more intense the anxiety, the more the thing that you feared of, will likely to happen. Why? Because of the Law of Attraction; the more you think and feel about it, the more you will get it.

So the best thing to overcome anxiety is to overcome your negative mental attitude. Have you noticed that when there is something that you do not like to happen, will more likely to happen? An example of this is when you were in school, when the teacher calls randomly for somebody to present in front of the class; you do not want to present because you are not prepared, or you are not confident to present; what do you feel? You feel anxious, anxious that you might be called. And the more anxious you become, the more likely that you will be called. And if you were very anxious, then definitely, you were called.

In the Law of Attraction, the process starts with having a thought of what you want, then this thought transform into desire to have what you want. Desire is an emotion, powerful enough to lead you to action until you get what you what. Anxiety is already an emotion, a powerful feeling that will lead you to your dominant negative thought-that something you feared of.

How then do you overcome your negative mental attitude? To overcome a negative mental attitude is to have a positive mental attitude. You can not overcome a negative mental attitude with a negative mental attitude. Let me give you an example: As I browsed the Google keyword, I noticed that a lot of people searched the Google about anxiety, about 4 million searches in one month, compared to happiness at about a million in a month. Both of these groups of people who searched for anxiety and happiness, are more likely to be suffering from anxiety or depression. If you are happy, why would you search for happiness on the internet anyway? The difference between these groups of people is their approach, or how they managed their anxiety. 4 million tried to manage their anxiety by learning more about anxiety. What do get, they end up feeding their thoughts more about anxiety, stories of people with anxiety, and so on. They end up attracting more negative forces to them and become more anxious. On the other hand, those people who tried to battle their anxiety by cultivating their thoughts with happy thoughts, happy moments, stories about happiness; and surrounding themselves with happy people are more likely to succeed in overcoming their anxiety.

Stress and anxiety are mental state of mind where negative thoughts are dominant, creating doubts and fears. To overcome stress and anxiety is to gain mastery over your thoughts and to change your mental attitude to a positive mentality. And one of the best ways to have a positive mental attitude is to nourish your mind with happy thoughts, lively music, happy moments, and associate yourself with happy people.
