What Dr. Alice Fong can say in an interview on
How to Deal with Pandemic Fear:
We must manage our fear or anxiety. Just like any other emotion, fear is spontaneous. Emotions, generally, do not stay for long. Fear, however, is not one of those. Left unchecked, a simple doubt can escalate into something much more uncontrollable, disruptive, and consuming. Here are 4 important things you can do to manage your fear.
- Acknowledge your fear. You can only truly manage your fear when you acknowledge it. If you shrug it off, you will be missing an important opportunity to look at it straight in the eye and face it head-on. By denying the reality that such fear exists, you are giving it a chance to creep in and get a hold of you.
- Evaluate it. Fear is not always unfounded. When we talk of fear, there is reality and there are those which are mere noises in our head. One of the most important things we can do to manage our fear is to evaluate it. We should learn to distinguish thoughts or unlikely circumstances from those that are actually realistic.
- Manage your mindset. Our mind plays a very important role in managing our fears. As mentioned before, fears can be a result of unpleasant experiences. When we experience something challenging, we need to be able to shift our mindset from seeing it as this horrible event we’ll never get past, to seeing it as an opportunity for growth. This way, we can do things better next time and it positions us to be in a more positive frame of mind, even through hardships and adversity.
- Consult a professional. When fear or anxiety is recurring or seems out of control, it would be a good idea to seek the help of a professional. They are highly trained in working on risky cases of fear or anxiety and can produce effective interventions.
