1. Take a Breath

and realize you are in control. Schedule a short time every day for a relaxation practice such as meditation or prayer. This helps to achieve mental and emotional clarity.

2. Acknowledge and process

the stress as it comes. When do you start to feel tension? What is your body trying to tell you? Understanding when and how anxiety is triggered can help combat it. Remember that stress is a natural reaction and, without it, humankind wouldn’t have survived. Our ancient ancestors, for example, used stress to alert them to potential danger.

3. Have perspective.

Is your fear legitimate? Maybe. If your fears were realized, would you survive? Would your business survive? Likely, yes.

4. Find an outlet.

Anxiety and stress are physical. Engaging in a favorite therapeutic hobby can align the body and the mind.

5. Find a mentor.

Establish a relationship with someone you admire professionally, and turn to them as a resource when you are feeling the pressure. They likely have been through similar hardships and can offer sound advice.

6. Lead and serve.

Investing and mentoring your employees and community members can be a healthy distraction. Your employees need a strong leader to feel confident in the future of the company. Be that leader.

7. Remember your mission.

Remind yourself daily of your personal and professional purpose, goals and aspirations.
