Fear is a way to help us escape from danger, but once we can’t control our fear and let it rule us, it can prevent us from moving forward with our lives. Fear can turn us inwards, and disconnect us from all that we love and wish to do. If you fear to the point that it restricts you from living your life and communicating with others, speak with someone you trust who can help you overcome this. Worry, the cousin of fear – rears its head more regularly in our lives. While worry shows that we care, worrying too much or anxiety can lead to stress and can be detrimental to our health. If you’re a regular worrywart, it’s time to take a step back and smell the roses by taking a walk in the park, picking up a hobby or exercising – anything that can distance you from those worries and calm you. The University of Minnesota stated that just by being in the presence of natural surroundings will increase those pleasant feelings of feeling relaxed and at ease. If you’re in favour of walking or hiking to bring down anxiety, here are some destinations nearby to visit: 6 Beautifully Stunning Hiking Trails in Malaysia You’ll Want to Discover.
