Anxiety can manifest itself as fear, restlessness, getting easily irritated, an inability to sleep or focus. Other symptoms include stuttering, sweating, finding it hard to talk to others, and feeling of being constantly judged.

Anxiety can also appear as a panic attack, or even a generalized anxiety disorder, in which one keeps on worrying and dreading the future. Left untreated, anxiety can lead to depression, early death, and suicide.

Doing It Badly

It's a normal human trait to wait for the perfect time before starting anything. This can cause long delays, stress, and anxiety. Indecision leads to inertia and while it is good to plan first, one should dive into action and expedite up the decision-making process to avoid losing the 'time window'.

'Doing Ii badly' springs us into action, and we can fine-tune the process as we go ahead. We stop worrying about things and start to move courageously.

Wait To Worry

People get particularly self-critical when mistakes are made, and anxiety makes them even more unkind towards themselves. One needs to stop the constant self-criticism and worry. In case a mistake is made, we don't need to start worrying immediately.

The strategy of 'Wait To Worry' doesn't feed any energy to our negative emotions, thereby removing stress and anxiety.

Find Purpose

  • Being neurotic and in a constant state of worry about your problems leads to poor mental health.
  • Doing something for others takes the spotlight off from us, and our stress, anxiety and worries are not highlighted for the time being.
  • Giving our time to helping others selflessly is shown to boost our mental health.

"For people who think there's nothing to live for, nothing more to expect from life … the question is getting these people to realize that life is still expecting something from them."

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
