Are you someone who suffers from nerves on a daily basis? Nervousness is a perfectly normal reaction to situations that might be intimidating, different to the norm or even dangerous, and as human beings we need to be able to detect situations that may be a threat to us. However, if you feel continuously nervous then this can be distressing and quite frankly, exhausting. Nerves drain the body of energy and can make you feel “wiped out” without actually providing any purpose to you whatsoever. This can leave you feeling extremely frustrated and disheartened about things that should be easy, such as going to the supermarket, driving to a friend’s house or attending a large social gathering.

There are ways to conquer nerves so that they don’t interfere with your daily life and stop you doing the things you want to do. Exercise and keeping active are both very important; a brisk walk or going for a swim will release adrenalin, keep you focused on the task and help you to sleep better. Listening to happy, upbeat music whilst exercising can inspire you and encourage positive thoughts which in turn will help to dampen those nervous feelings.

Dwelling too much on your thoughts can make you feel worse, and although it is good to talk things through with someone to get your feelings out in the open, it isn’t necessarily healthy to sit at home on your own and brood. Write your feelings down, talk them through with a friend or someone you trust, but always avoid bottling emotions up. It will help to surround yourself with friends and family and be socially active if you can.

Always ensure you are getting enough sleep, as sleep deprivation can cause anxiety and nervousness, making it a struggle to get through a day at work or an important meeting.

Talking through your feelings or simply meeting up with a friend for coffee to chat can do the world of good. Don’t label yourself as “just a nervous person”. You don’t have to be and there are ways you can manage this and say goodbye to nerves altogether.

Hypnotherapy or combining hypnotherapy and a Positive Thinking Styles course can help to change the way you react to certain situations or people so that you can gain more control and insight into yourself. Once you can understand yourself better then you can start to make positive changes to your life.
