4 Ways To Overcome YOUR Fear of Heights
My best friend is one of those who has fear of heights. I remember, one day, when we went hiking and he ended up as the most exhausted guy from the group. That time, he was trying to pretend that he did not have the fear. But, I know, it was there. So, I did an intensive research to help him overcome it.
1.) Use a Hypnosis Product
Others might think it's a fallacy; but for me it's not.
Hypnosis can help a human mind keep calm and relaxed. It can train the mind to flip its thoughts from being negative to positive. It can erase all your fears and worries, which will eventually uplift your mindset.
2.) One stage at once
Before, there practice was called by the psychologists as 'flooding.' The idea is to confront your fear in a single blast so that your fear framework will be overpowered. As a result, fear itself will be gone as you calm down.
However, the impact is subjective. What may work for others may not work for you. So, why not eliminate it one by one? Start with setting small challenges for yourself: “Today, I will cross that low bridge over the river. Then, if I'm comfortable with it, I'll try more higher places.” See?
3.) Lower the FEAR as you get further
The question is how?
The answer is proper way of breathing. You can learn it from any hypnotherapy courses in Adelaide. How can breathing diminish the fear?
As you notice, when people get scared, they panic and become terrified . Then, their breathing patterns suddenly become irregular. It's not their fault since that reaction is normal for a human. This same goes with fear of heights.
The best thing to do is to be calm in times when sudden fear arises. And in order to be calm, you have to “BREATH!”
4) Mind Preparation
Always prepare your mind. Don't be paranoid, okay? The idea is to become more aware of the present for you to act in the best way. This will help you get ready for any situation that involves placing yourself somewhere “high.”
To practice this, close your eyes and begin to concentrate on breathing. Start to imagining yourself in standing in a high place with confidence and ease. Whatever is in your mind at that time, it would manifest in the future.
What happen to my Best Friend?
Speaking of him, his fear of heights has somehow diminished. Although, it hasn't yet fully healed, but I, and his whole family, can see that his fear is slowly fading. As of now, he's currently having hypnotherapy South Australia. His last text message told me that he's undergoing hypnotherapy courses Adelaide. I'm excited for the results!
