Happy Magnificent Monday!!

For March we are focusing on fear. So what are you afraid of? Is there a basis for believing that such harm will happen to you? Can the harmful thing, person or situation be avoided? Should it be avoided? These are the questions that you should ask in order to determine if your fear is healthy or unhealthy?

If your fear of developing heart disease because you eat high fat, high calorie food, and do not exercise leads you to make some changes in your diet and activity level. This is an example of a healthy fear. If you fear developing heart disease; despite eating well, exercising, minimizing stress in your life, and receiving a good report from your doctor; this is an unhealthy fear. It has little to no basis or support that such harm will happen to you. You have done much to avoid such harm. This is an unhealthy fear. So, today and the rest of the week. Take some time to identify the fears in your life. Next, determine which are unhealthy and which are unhealthy.

“Fear defeats more people than any other one thing in the world”

Ralph Waldo Emerson
