Practical Exercise

Fear is always attached to future events, a worry about what is going to happen next. Make a list of some things that you may have been putting off due to low levels of fear. Don’t include things that you are really afraid of or that would put you in any danger, just things that, should you manage to achieve them, would give you a glow of satisfaction.

 

Examples

  • Making an appointment at the dentist

  • Joining a new club or class

  • Saying no to something you don’t want to do

  • Initiating a conversation with a stranger

  • Complaining about something you have found unsatisfactory

  • Making a phone call you’ve been putting off for a while
