It’s Okay To Be Nervous


Stop battling your nerves; they are normal.

Nerves are a typical human sensation. Nervousness is a normal reaction to stress and uncertainty, whether it manifests as the pits in your stomach before a big presentation or the racing heart before a first date. But what triggers these nerves, and why do some people experience them more severely than others? The response of our brain to stress holds the key to the solution. The “fight or flight” reaction is brought on by the brain because it is built to defend us against danger and threats. This reaction causes the production of hormones like adrenaline and cortisol, which alter the body’s physical characteristics like heart rate and muscle tension and set the body up to either fight or run from the perceived threat.

The fight or flight reaction can be elicited in circumstances when there is no actual threat, such as public speaking, social situations, or novel encounters, despite the fact that it is a natural and essential survival strategy. Anxiety and trepidation may result from this. Remember that everyone experiences nerves differently and that some people may react more strongly than others. Numerous elements, including heredity, prior experiences, and personality type, might have an impact on this. There are techniques to control and lessen anxiety, though. Deep breathing exercises, encouraging self-talk, and visualisation exercises can all aid in body and mind relaxation. Setting reasonable expectations and being well-prepared can also help calm nerves.

Additionally, it’s critical to keep in mind that nerves are a typical aspect of human nature and should not be viewed as a sign of weakness. under truth, tension can improve focus and performance under some circumstances. Look, while they can be painful, nerves are a normal part of life and shouldn’t be frightened. Nerves can even be useful in some circumstances with the right control and awareness. Keep in mind that everyone experiences nerves differently, so it’s crucial to be kind and tolerant with yourself. Unfamiliar circumstances or events will gradually become a little more familiar, and anxiety will diminish.

In the interim, I’m going to try to deceive my brain by telling it that instead of being anxious, we are eager for a new chapter and new challenges.

    If you learn not to become afraid of feeling fear, you break a negative feedback loop. Then fear becomes a positive experience because of its adrenaline high. Based on personal experience from learning to meditate during high fear states…

      When you have the courage to feel pain, you grow in ways that you never thought possible. You experience what you’re truly capable of. You explore the beautiful places within yourself that you didn’t know existed. You peer into the well of your soul and feel its texture. You face yourself. And when the pain fades, you emerge with your feet planted more firmly on the ground. Now, it takes a much greater force to knock you down.
