How To Deal With Anxiety Running A Business

Running a business is a rush but you shouldn’t feel restless, down or amped up ALL of the time, these are symptoms of anxiety. 

How you deal with anxiety as an entrepreneur can make or break your business.

So how do you properly cope and soothe your mind & body?


Let’s begin with what anxiety actually is:

According to “Anxiety is the reaction to situations perceived as stressful or dangerous. “The amped-up feeling and restlessness you may feel can be manifestations of anxiety. The world we live in and the hectic pace of our society often leaves people feeling this way. 


Symptoms Of Anxiety:

  • Feeling restless, wound-up, or on-edge
  • Being easily fatigued
  • Having difficulty concentrating; mind going blank
  • Being irritable
  • Having muscle tension
  • Difficulty controlling feelings of worry
  • Having sleep problems, such as difficulty falling or staying asleep, restlessness, or unsatisfying sleep

Have you ever felt so pent up and anxious that you couldn’t get simple tasks accomplished?

One reason for this dilemma is that whenever you’re worried or nervous, you use up precious stores of emotional energy. When this happens, you have no energy left to sustain your daily existence. You feel drained. And you’ll continue to feel that way until you can alleviate some of your anxiety.

Lack of energy is just part of the negative impact that anxiety has on your life. Anxiety seriously impedes both your mental and physical health. Learning to control anxiety is one of the best things you can do for your well-being. 


Here are 7 mental strategies you can use to control your anxiety:

1. Start Fret List.

Get a spiral notebook specifically for your Fret List. When you start to feel anxious about something, write it down on your list. Doing so will allow you to calm your chaotic thoughts and confidently move on with your day.

2.Schedule time to freak out.

Establish a time to worry each day. As your worries sneak into your thoughts throughout the day, “gather them up” by jotting down those concerns onto your Fret List. Then, decide on a specific time you’ll worry about each day.

You can set up as much time as you want — 15 minutes, 30 minutes, or even a whole hour to fret and worry. 

Get it out of your head & system.

3. Abruptly stop any worry or panic that occurs spontaneously during the day. When you start to worry throughout the day, say to yourself, “No, I’m not going to worry about that right now. I’ll do it during Fret Time.”

  • Discover your power by abruptly ceasing your worry outside of Fret Time.
  • You receive an immediate benefit from this action because it conserves your emotional energy, allowing you to feel more vigorous throughout your busy day. 

4. Spend your established Fret Time alone.

Close the door. Turn off distractions and play on of the daytime or nighttime subliminals in the Supersonic Subliminals Bundle.

Set a timer for when you’ll stop fretting. Now, get out your Fret List and fret. 

Do nothing but think about upsetting topics during your established time. When the timer goes off, stop your anxious thoughts. Strengthen your resolve to focus on the rest of your day free of worry.

5. Challenge your thoughts. Question your anxiety.

For example, if you worry you won’t hit your sales goal check your revenue plan to see how the projections align with your goals.

You’ll find the devil’s advocate routine squelches many kinds of unsettling anxieties.

6. Prepare for the worst.

Think of the worst-case scenario & ask yourself, “Does this issue have a solution?” If you can quickly determine whether the challenge at hand is solvable, you can then confidently proceed to put a solution into place to prevent future worry about that issue. 

Then write it down and rip it up.

7. Expect the best.

Imagine the best-case scenario. How do you feel? Lean into that relief and revisit that feeling after your Fret Time is over, you can also listen to the meditation in Supersonic Subliminals Bundle.



When you practice these steps, you’ll be able to manage your anxiety better each day. Plus, you’ll enjoy more emotional energy to spend enjoying your business & financial success.
