The 4 Characteristics To Transform Your Life!

Today we’re going to look at the four characteristics of a warrior mindset.

Here are the four characteristics of a warrior mindset:

  • Knowing What You Want
  • Committing Yourself to Your Goal
  • Taking Courageous Action
  • Determination to Finish What You Started

That’s it!

Simple right? Absolutely!

Easy? Not so much.

Let’s take a closer look at these points. Again, these characteristics play an equal part in competition, health and fitness as well as life.

1 – Knowing What You Want: Many people can’t get pass this one. They THINK they know what they want, but really they know what they DON’T want. This lends itself to lack of commitment and as soon as they hit a little resistance…BAM, they’re blown out of the water. When things just aren’t going as planned this time that the most people bail, because they don’t know what they want.

2 – Committing Yourself to Your Goal: This point of failure is linked directly to “knowing what you want.” The reason most people won’t commit to their goal is they really don’t know what it is and if they really want it. Let’s face it, if you approach a goal with the attitude “it would be nice to achieve this” are you really committed? If not, why waste your time going after it!?

3 – Taking Courageous Action: Notice I didn’t say timid action…I said courageous action. This means being bold, taking risk, putting yourself out there for the entire world to see. Sure ANY action is better than no action. If you’ve got points 1 and 2 above nailed down, take a long hard look at this one. Nothing happens without action…period!

Results are directly proportional to a person’s energy AND their action….no action, no results. Timid action = timid results. Courageous action = spectacular results!

4 – Determination to Finish What You Start: This by far is probably the toughest to adhere to.  With the emphasis today on multi-tasking and the “next best thing” right around the corner many people become distracted. If they don’t become distracted, as soon as they hit a wall or a dip they’ll look for an easier way. This point is also closely tied to point #1 – “knowing what you want.” If you truly, deeply know exactly what you want you will find the determination to finish what you started.

You’ve just been given the four key components for success and read about the four characteristics of a warrior mindset.  And yet there hasn’t been given a single solitary point that absolutely points to the reason why people fail…or has there?

If you’ve been paying attention you’ll see that there is a common thread through ALL the points mentioned above.

Want to know what it is?


Yup…the individual is the main reason for their success and their failure.  This may sound pretty harsh…but it’s true.

OK…so this might have been a little tough to comprehend. It’s not the individual per se, it’s how they think that is the number one reason why they “fail.” This post should have been a massive eye opener for you, and I can only hope you’ll take this valuable information, and apply it into some aspect of your life.

How Generalized Anxiety Disorder Manifests into a Person’s Life

Anxiety is a protective mechanism. It makes you alert before something happens. So, even healthy adults can experience anxiety if something crucial is imminent. But if you feel it too often, even when there is nothing to worry about, you might be having some anxiety disorder.

Anxiety has significant effect on your personal relationships. While you are anxious, you spend most of the time thinking about the source of your anxiety. So, you are being consumed by your thoughts and can’t interact with the other human beings as a normal person does.

One of the important ways the anxiety can affect your relationship is making you suspicious about your partner. Trust is very important for a successful relationship. Lack of trust makes you think in different way about your partner. When you are paranoid or suspicious about your partner, you keep an eye and pick up small clues to support your imaginary hypothesis against your partner. You start believing in things even when there is no supportive evidence behind it. So, your relationship becomes vulnerable.

Anxiety can affect your romantic relationship. Usually it is the close relationship which is affected the most. Anxiety in a close relationship usually takes the form of jealousy, insecurity and suspicion. An anxious person may start thinking that his/her partner is cheating on him/her. While you are suspicious, you don’t need a sound reason to believe something. You keep looking for irrelevant and illogical explanations to support your ideas irrespective of the reality.

Apprehension is an important feature of the anxiety disorders. This means the person knows of his condition that he is anxious. An anxious person is aware that he is over anxious about things but can’t stop himself. This adds to the anxiety of the patient because he blames himself for any break in relationship. On the other hand, he is very much dependent on his partner because anxiety needs a lot of reassurance and psychological support by psychologist as well as by close relatives. So, any break in relationship will worsen the condition of this patient.

A study showed that seven out of ten patients suffering from general anxiety disorder believe that their anxiety had a negative impact on the relationship. They are more prone to relationship problems, and the risk is about two times than that for the general population. 75% of the patients thought that it also affected their normal routine activities.

9 Essential Steps For Dealing With Depression

It is known that people with low self-esteem are more prone to depression than the others. Therefore, to deal with this ailment it is important to work on confidence.

Listed below are the activities that in themselves are not the methods of struggle with depression, but they do help many people to be liberated from depression, realize their value, improve your mood, so offsetting the symptoms of depression.

  1. Engage in creative work. It is useful to engage yourself in any occupation: painting, sewing, cooking, dancing, playing musical instruments, drawing flowers, writing poetry or stories etc. This is important because in the course of employment or your hobby, you are disconnected from the usual thinking and imagination and feelings involved.
  2. Make the list for the daily activities and follow it. This simple step will help you keep yourself on track of the progress towards the normal life. But do not be too hard on yourself.
  3. Keep a diary. At the end of each day, write down the events, even if they seem insignificant. Write about what attracted your attention and why e.g. what you liked while reading, etc. But do not get carried away by the thoughts of unpleasant incidents.
  4. Be physically active. Sport activities increase the production of endorphins in the body; they are known as – “happiness hormones”. These substances control the activity of the endocrine glands, and improve the mood. However, exercise helps to cope with depression not only because of the production of endorphins, but also because they also promote self-esteem.
  5. Walk. It has been proven that a daily walk in the morning is able to alleviate the symptoms of depression. Taking a walk and try to have fun. Try to feel the breeze, sounds of birds, smell of grass etc. At first, this may seem insignificant, but eventually you learn to enjoy these sensations.
  6. Be Careful while choosing the source of information. If you frequently read a newspaper or the Internet publication, which describes the accidents and other negative events, you are at the risk of developing the bad mood. The publication of such information is a relatively easy way to get people’s attention, which is used by many media outlets. It is scientifically proven that the bad news increase the risk of depression. If you know that several people have been killed on the other side of the planet, you will still not be able to help them. Give preference to that news that does not use such techniques to attract the audience.
  7. Smile more often. A sense of joy makes us smile. Clinical trails show that when we smile, the body produces chemicals that make us feel happy. In order to make you smile, watch funny movies, read something nice e.g. jokes.
  8. Try to be happy. Imagine that you are an actor who plays the role of a happy man and try to get used to the role. This sounds a bit strange, but this method often works. Select a time and every day pretend that you are happy. Try to behave and think like a lucky man. Note that we get depressed not so much because of the trouble, but from a lack of positive emotions. While carrying out this exercise, try to enjoy every minute. Most importantly, do not let yourself think about the troubles of the past or worrying about the future. Instead, focus on what is happening “here and now”. 
  9. Communicate more. Find a friend with whom you can share experiences. But it is important to talk to someone who listens like a friend, and don not judge, evaluate, or hang tags.

Put these 9 essential steps into action in your life and begin your road to recovery from dealing with depression.

Getting Past Anxieties After Causing a Bad Accident

Auto accidents happen all the time…that’s the reality, but it doesn’t help to comfort the fears and anxieties you might be feeling after having caused a horrible accident. Whether the other party was injured or not, realizing that you put yourself, and others, in the line of danger can be very overwhelming to deal with.

Not to mention the mounting stress of dealing with insurance companies, lawyers, and the aftermath of a bad accident, it’s enough to drive a sane person insane. It can often be an eye opener for anyone, and if you’re not careful, it can hinder your ability to drive again.

Be that as it may, life still goes on, and it is important for you to face your fears head on. As scary as getting back on the road may seem, it’s likely something you have to do, and therefore, something you must overcome. But how? How do you get over the feeling, get the images of the accident out of your head, and trust yourself enough to drive once again?

Well I can tell you it won’t be an easy accomplishment, but if you order your steps and try each day, eventually you’ll overcome your anxieties and be able to get back on the road. Below are some suggestions on how to get there:

Finish Handling the Aftermath of the Accident

You can never truly get past your anxieties if there are still events tied to it that you have to deal with. It will be important for you to make sure that you’ve handled all of your obligations so that you can put this behind you. This might mean any of the following:

·  Filing an insurance claim

·  Paying your deductible

·  Attending court dates

·  Obtaining an affordable SR22 insurance policy (in the event that the judge requires you to carry this form of insurance as a result of your at fault accident status)

·  Paying court costs and obligations

·  Taking time to mentally and physically heal

Understand Certain Realities

Once you have tied up all the loose ends to your accident, you are then ready to begin healing from your anxieties. Understanding reality for what it is can sometimes cancel out your fears and allow you to move on with your life. You must sit back and ask yourself a few questions to determine what your realities are. Here are a few you might consider:

·  If I don’t drive, how will I get to and from the locations I need to be?

·  If I opt to use other forms of transportation, how much will that cost?

·  If I opt to have someone else drive me around, how much of my freedom is minimized (i.e. you have to be dropped off and picked up at the leisure of other people)?

·  If I don’t drive, how many things in life will I simply miss out on?

Debunk Your Fears

Now you’ve taken a real look at reality. You have a clear understanding of how you’re unwillingness to drive will affect your lifestyle and your finances. Next step is to debunk whatever your fears might be. Cancelling out your fears can help to minimize the pressures you might feel as you get behind the wheel of a car. When trying to debunk your fears and change your way of thinking you must first ask yourself, “What am I afraid of?” Are you fearful that you’ll cause another accident? Are you afraid that another accident would be even more deadly than the one you just caused? Are you afraid that you could possibly hurt someone who’s in the car with you at the time?

Once you know what your fears are, you must then debunk or cancel them out by applying realities. Here’s an example:

I am afraid that I will get in another accident – It is a very real possibility that you could get into another accident. However, that possibility was there before you caused this accident and you still chose to drive. Another reality to add would be the lesson you learned from the first accident. Let’s say you were texting instead of paying attention to the road. You now know that you should not allow your phone to distract you while driving and therefore should not make that same mistake again.

Take it One Step At a Time

“Mind over matter” is a very true phrase when discussing driving phobias or anxieties. Most of what you fear is in your mind, and if you’ve taken the time to tie up all the loose ends, understand the realities of not driving and how it will impact your life, and debunking your fears with actual reality, then you’re ready to try your hand at driving again. However, because the mind is a very powerful thing, it may be best to take it one day at a time. Maybe at first you want to stay within your city limits and not get on a highway, then as time progresses you decide to take a quick highway ride, and eventually you get back to driving full time. Go at your own pace, but the important part is that you actually drive as the only way to overcome a fear is to face it head on.

I hope that I have been able to help you in some way to overcome your driving phobias and anxieties. Being in an accident is certainly a traumatic experience that no one wants to encounter, but unfortunately, it happens daily. The best thing you can do for yourself is to continue to build your self confidence, and motivate yourself to press past the fears. With time, you will eventually come to drive again being more aware than you were in days prior.

Best Treatment For Development Disorders In Children

Music as a Treatment

While ushering a new child into this world can be a rewarding and exciting experience, it can also be extremely scary and uncertain. In addition to all the outside factors parents must worry about, there are also the ones they cannot control.

One out of every 65 births in the United States produces a child with an Autism spectrum disorder. These are also known as pervasive developmental disorders (PPD’s) and can affect a child’s social skills, communication, ability to empathize, and demonstrate flexible behavior; such as changing plans at the last minute. While there are more disorders that fall under the PPD umbrella, the most common are Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome.

In addition to developmental disorders, parents must worry about a generation of children who seemingly cannot pay attention to anything. Many point to video gaming culture as the source of children’s short attention spans; a problem that is manifesting itself in lowered academic performance. Parents and teachers are puzzled at how to get kids to stay focused and on task.

Fortunately, researchers in California are hoping that music and the learning of it can be major factors in treating these things. Through separate studies, researchers are finding correlations between the acquisition of music skills and improved symptoms. Additionally, thanks to technology finding a quality teacher is easier than ever, and takes very little time.

Music and Autism Spectrum Disorders

Autism spectrum disorders have to do with the brain’s ability to process sensory information, this can put people with these types of disorders in situations where there may be an overload to their senses, like a busy social setting.

Research from Cal Berkley’s College of Music Therapy, suggests there is, “scientific evidence that music therapy influences children on the autism spectrum in several ways, like enhancing skills in communication, interpersonal relationships, self-regulation, coping strategies, stress management, and focusing attention.” The presence of music allows them to organize better what they are seeing, and react as if there wasn’t an overload of sensory information. The tricks is figuring out how to implement music into their life, so it is most effective.

One way is through the use of personal music players that allow for whoever is listening to organize their thoughts more clearly. Learning an instrument has also shown to be therapeutic and beneficial to those that are dealing with Autism spectrum disorders. While being able to play an instrument is always looked at as a positive, it could be a life changing thing for someone with one of these disorders.

Music and Attention Disorders

It becomes harder and harder to find ways to get young people to pay attention and focus. Luckily, researchers in San Diego are doing something about it. The Museum school is using instruments and music as a way have studying how children focus, and how best to increase that focus.

Using sensors that are attached to instruments, researchers are able to monitor how accurate a child is at hitting a certain beat, and are then compared to cognitive tests and assessments done by teachers and parents. When studying the results they found a correlation between inaccuracy and low test scores. However, they also showed as accuracy increased so did those same test scores.

Researchers believe that the obligation to coordinate in a large group, is causing the students to focus and pay more attention to what they are doing. With 1 in 10 children in the United States ADHD, most of them are medicated with pharmaceuticals. Music could be an exciting alternative treatment, for those that don’t want to medicate with drugs.

Better Solution

Families that must deal with Autism Spectrum disorders, attention disorders, and other behavioral disorders have a lot on their plate. While they would do anything for a struggling family member, they wouldn’t argue with a way to relieve some of the stress too. Getting a child with one of these disorders involved in music could be the best thing for them.

However, some may find it difficult to find a trustworthy music teacher that will be patient with their child and their needs. LessonRating allows users to locate, review, and rate music teachers in their local areas. This gives parents the ability to prescreen any teacher before deciding what is best for their child.

Additionally, this makes the process easier than usual. This saves you from running around town to different locations trying to find a teacher, pay for lessons, and coordinate schedules. Using this and other services like it, parents can browse from their own home in their free time, and open their child’s eyes to something that could help them better cope with the world around them.


A Proven Guide To Living Your Most Desired Life

If I suddenly dropped you in the middle of a foreign place, what would be the first thing you would do? I assume you would scan your environment in order to determine how you should behave (how cautious should you be) and then seek signs in order to establish direction.

You meet friendly locals, but none of them know where you come from, so they can only offer their best suggestions for what you should do.

Following their advice should lead you to safety but won’t get you back home.

Unless you discover the signs that can lead you home, you will remain trapped in this foreign place. Although over time, you may learn to adjust, it never feels quite right because you never chose to live there. Their beliefs, behavior and lifestyle are just too different from yours, and so you will always be searching for a way home.

A value is a core principle that is also attached to a feeling and a standard of behavior that is personally important to you. Ideally, the best values are the ones you totally believe in, feel deeply and act on frequently. Unfortunately, many people do not live by their highest values. This is either because of unawareness, short term pain avoidance or lack of discipline in implementation.

“Surprisingly, the biggest reason why people do not live by their highest values is simply because they do not know what they are.”

Since it is survival and not happiness that is our primary instinctual priority, our own core values are not automatically available to us. In fact, what most people think are their values (if they think about them at all), is usually the result of what has been conditioned into them by external influences.

Through our attempts to avoid pain and seek pleasure and in order to find stability and progress, we absorb and follow the values of those with the most influence over us. Primarily, they will be the values of your parents, but also that of other role-models, friends, community standards and the greater social status quo.

It is highly likely that your adopted values have served their primary purpose which is to keep you safe from harm.

However, pain avoidance based living will not increase your happiness or strengthen your mental health.

Values act as the director in life.

How you are being directed is going to determine the quality of the experiences you have on set. The set is your life! Valued direction will guide you like a compass to take certain paths and avoid others. Knowing this, is it not crucial that you receive the right direction?

What if the director is indecisive, easily confused or makes conflicting choices? What if he or she frequently feels overwhelmed by choice or bored because of a perceived lack of options? What if your director cannot actually read or even find a compass?

There are four stages when it comes to values driven living:

  • Extract
  • Align
  • Express
  • Adjust

First you must extract your own core values. Your intention is to find what you need to raise your standards of behavior. Then you align them in their proper sequence so they are easy to pursue. Following this you express them by behaving in accordance with the chosen values and finally you adjust any of the previous three areas accordingly based on the feedback you receive.

Values Extraction

Extracting core values is actually quite a simple process. All that is required is to ask yourself two simple questions. The first is “What do I want in life?” For example, you may say a big house, more money, deeper friendships, family, a new car, a better job and so on.

At this point it is important to realize that these are not values but goals. Goals are the potential tangible results of a value being met. None of the above are core principles attached to feelings and a standard of behavior. To extract the actual value, a second question is asked.

The second question is “What would having this lead me to feel?” Therefore, if I asked you what would having a big house lead you to feel and you said “secure,” security is a value. In addition you might reveal that a large house would allow you to have a large group of your friends over. When I ask what emotion would that lead you to feel you may say “fun”, or “love.” Fun and love are values.

If you wanted money and I asked why, you may respond, “So, I can be free to do what I want.” Freedom is a value.

A different person may want more money for a different reason. They may say they want money so that if anything happens to their family, they would have enough to care for their loved ones, in that case security would be the value. Someone else may say I want the money so I can “take it easy and just relax.” In that case, comfort would be the value.

You may want money to feel all three of those values, but one in particular will be guiding your decisions more than the others.

It is also important to realize that unlike a goal, values cannot be achieved. You cannot achieve love. You are either being more or less loving at any moment. You cannot achieve security. You are either feeling more or less secure at any moment. This is the same with fun, freedom, and comfort. Several people may want the same thing, but they may all want it for different emotional reasons.

Values Alignment

Once your values have been extracted, the next step is alignment. Alignment relates to ranking your values in the correct order to avoid inner conflict. For example, if “freedom” is your highest value, but “security” is your second highest, you are likely to become indecisive.

Here, you will need to examine what you truly want and either move one of those values further down the list or possibly remove one altogether. In most cases in an example like this, the value that is moved or dropped is “security.”

The first reason why this is likely is because “freedom” is actually ranking higher. The second reason is “security” is usually defined in a way that is pain avoidance based, and if you truly want to live your best life, you should have an overall focus on seeking pleasure.

Thirdly, depending on the perspective you take (focusing on what you do want as opposed to what you do not, e.g. “less fat” or “more trim”, “less stressed” or “more relaxed” – See Positive Focus Principle), by focusing on becoming truly free, this may allow you to feel even more secure. If you become less attached to what you think you need to make you secure and instead aim for greater freedom, you may find an even deeper sense of security within that freedom.

Values Expression and Adjustment

Once you have found and aligned your values, the next step is expression. Your aim is to make them real by utilizing them in your daily life. Your values are there to guide and flavor your mentally healthy lifestyle. In terms of guiding your life, the question to ask is “What tasks will I choose to do today that will best compliment my values?”

In relation to flavoring your life, ask “What value/s will I express in order to enhance my experience of this task?”

The first question is best asked at the beginning of each day and the second question is to be kept in mind, answered and acted upon frequently throughout the day.

The final step is adjustment.

As you progress, you may need to change your values, re-align the order and sequence or learn how to express them more effectively in order to find the right life balance. This is not a process that is to be done once and never repeated or adjusted.

Developing Mental Health Guidelines: Extracting and Aligning Your Values

1. Excavation:

What do you want in life? Spend 5-10 minutes writing down your answers to this question. For example, is it more money, better or more friends, increased health, new experiences and so on. Write down everything and anything you can think of that you would want.

To assist you, also consider what you want in relation to categories of life. Consider what you want in relation to health, finances, personal growth, spirituality, hobbies, career, relationships, fun and experiences.

Once you have a large list, ask yourself in relation to each item “What would having this lead me to feel?” This question will get to the value. You may have to ask it more than once per item to get you to the deeper value.

2. Alignment:

Examine your values list and circle between 5-10 values that you know would lead to greater confidence, happiness and fulfillment.

Then rank them in order of preference and create a final list of no more than 3-5 values. Be careful not to place conflicting values near each other on the hierarchy. You can rank them intuitively or if uncertain, ask yourself this question: When I think of how I must live my life (in order to be authentic and healthy), am I guided more by _____or_____?

E.g. When I think of how I must live my life (in order to be authentic and healthy), am I guided more by Courage or Freedom?

Answer: Courage. Then ask the same question with Courage and another of your top 10 values.
When I think of how I must live my life (in order to be authentic and healthy), am I guided more by Courage or Health?

Answer: Health. Then you would continue comparing Courage with the other values. After finishing with Courage, you would compare another value like Freedom with each of the other values. If you select the values you think will be highest to compare with the others each time, you should be able to finish this process quite quickly.

Assuming that there are only three values to compare, I will complete this example. Although, this last comparison is not mathematically necessary. When I think of how I must live my life (in order to be authentic and healthy), am I guided more by Health or Freedom?

Answer: Health. So in this example:

1. Health
2. Courage
3. Freedom

If at any point you feel you begin to contradict yourself during this process, rank the contradictions intuitively.

1. __________________
2. __________________
3. __________________
4. __________________
5. __________________
6. __________________
7. __________________
8. __________________
9. __________________
10. __________________

3. Expression: Now your goal is to live your values.

The first question in order to do this is the daily question, “What tasks will I choose to do today that will best compliment my values?” The second question to be asked frequently is “What value/s will I express in order to enhance my experience of this task?”

In the beginning, write down your answers to these questions each time they are asked and the results based on their implementation.

4. Adjustment: You can be too expressive or not expressive enough.

For one week minimum, monitor the effects of your value based actions (based on how you feel, how others respond and how successful you are in relation to tasks) and evaluate how you feel overall at the end of each day in order to see if your values feel like they are in the right order. Simply journal about your experience.

Make adjustments as necessary. Experiment with changing the order of your values and intensity and frequency of expression until you get the balance right.

Living by Your Values

Living by your values will develop your ability to understand yourself, leading to more confident and enjoyable living. In some ways values add to the “behavior is king” principle in conjunction with knowing what is most important to you.

You can “act now” and set goals based on what your values are even if you do not feel or believe that you can. Being authentic is a major key to healthy and happy living and knowing and acting on your values allows you to do this.

Principle Summary

Valuable Living: Undertake simple values clarification in order to know how to consistently live your best life. Discovering and living by your values will give you the greatest sense of freedom and meaningful direction. They are the best signposts for knowing what to do and how to act when facing difficult and uncertain choices.

Fast-Action Techniques:

1. Complete the values process as described in this article and organize your top 3-5 values and answer the questions on how you will implement them.

2. Place your values in a highly visible place, so you can reflect on them often. Mine are written on a large piece of cardboard posted on the back of my home office door. Also consider adding empowering images, quotes, poems, etc. that are reflective of your values.

3. To engrain your values, for at least 2-3 weeks, spend a few minutes each day reading them and describe how you will act in accordance with your values across a few different expected situations during the day. Be kind to yourself as well.

You will never be perfect at this, values are sign-posts to keep turning to whenever we get off track and if after a period of time they don’t seem to be feeling right for you, review your values and change them.

Top 5 Best Ways To Deal With Agoraphobia

What is Agoraphobia?

The term agoraphobia literally means the fear of open spaces which also leads to a sudden feeling of impassiveness from others. Clinically it is an anxiety disorder where the feeling of helplessness, trapped and embarrassment in crowded areas, public or remote areas comes back at regular intervals or impulsive panic attacks without any warning. The people who have developed Agoraphobia feared leaving home or need a companion while going out.

Causes of Agoraphobiaovercome agoraphobia

Until now, there has been no authentic evidence of the reasons behind developing Agoraphobia or other panic disorders. Apparently, brain control over fear emotion, genetics and family history or environmental factors are said to be responsible for this panic disorder.

Agoraphobia Symptoms

A manifest of combinations including feelings, fear, and other physical symptoms that are associated with Agoraphobia are focused in on the following phobias;

  • Spending time alone phobia
  • Crowd phobia
  • Open space phobia
  • Death phobia

Letting someone else drive for you can lead you to hopefully feeling less nervous. However the public transport also gives you chills and panic attacks so while you have crucial needs to get on a public transport, you must overcome your internal debate and speak up for a request to drive slowly. Tell the driver exactly what you want to do.

The need to hide out at home will lead you nowhere. You have to reinforce yourself to get out and have a life. If the idea keeps you horrified still, just try to open the front door, take a step out. Keep yourself motivated. It might take a whole lot of practicing, but keep exerting yourself to take the first step then second and so on. Sometimes the panic wins and other times you will be the winner.

All panic disorders can be recovered with constant re-conditioning through an anxiety life coach. The more you talk about your feelings and situations, the better you feel. It helps in recovering and feeling better.

  1. Relationships

Loved ones can help in all phobic disorders. As a parent, doing something for kids gives a really comforting feeling while getting the courage to do what you hate the most. Eventually, an Agoraphobic parent will get out of his/her comfort zone as kids love trying new things and getting out for fun.

  1. Support Group

Join a Support Group of Agoraphobic People on the internet that provides solutions, and doesn’t keep you coping with Agoraphobia. Talking to people with similar conditions makes a huge difference.
