Depression or anxiety is a general feeling of tension, anxiety, great stress, panic or fear, and it occurs when a person is exposed to a real or fictional threatening situation.
Navarro, a former FBI agent, spoke to Shana Lebowitz, Associate Business Insider, which had problems with stress.
– Sweated my palms, legs trembling, and my heart would really pounding. And not to talk about their desperate moves to hide it, pretending calm , she says.
In the hope that is not the only one who is facing these, about a year ago called the Navarra seeking to tell her how to cope with stress, so that does not leave the impression that she was nervous and how to control their behavior.
– The first thing I tell people is that if you are nervous, there is good reason for this.Maybe you have a first date or a job interview, or have a severe presentation , said Navarro with the advice:
– Go ahead, do not try to hide.
Admit that you’re nervous and deal with it helps to soothe anxiety
– Stress is a natural event, you can stir crazy in trying to control him, but sometimes it’s easier just to admit, ‘Yes, I’m nervous’ and allow others to know it , advises Navarro.
Navarro presented the strategy to a three-step beat anxiety. You must first become aware of your anxiety, then you have your loved ones (or the audience) know that you are fighting the same and eventually adjust their nervous behavior.
He points out that the first step is the hardest. Research shows that admitting that you are concerned you admit that you are a little vulnerable. However, your neighbor or audiences have more understanding for your anxiety, but you. Allowing yourself to comment nervousness with your audience (smile will suffice), will help you to relax. As far as your nervous tics, Navarro recommends that slow down your movement or simply try to hide from view. If you bite her lip, doing it slowly, or if your hands are constantly in your hair, keep them under the table and instead of touching the hair, very quiet tap his foot.
A few months after talks with Navarro Lebowitz met Roy Baumeister, a psychologist from Florida State University, who has studied the anxiety and the relationship between meaning and happiness.
According to his research, lead to anxiety thoughts and experiences, such as. job interviews, presentations, heavy projects …
Baumaisterovo research takes us back to Navarrov first step to address the anxiety: If you can accept that you do your nerves signal that you are doing something important, it is easier to declare that you are concerned, than to pretend that you are wrong.
Finally, Navarro says he expected to feel anxiety from time to time, but we must accept that there is no life without stress and to learn that most of the prevalence of visible nervousness awareness that it is natural and that we must accept.
