Being overly afraid about life circumstances can also negatively impact your health. With an improved frame of reference, anyone can control and even eliminate fear and worry.
According to Matthew McQuaid, DPM the secret to living fearless is in changing your conscious and unconscious thinking.
There are many simple and practical techniques you can do to eliminate fear from your life forever. Dr. McQuaid will be discussing these fear reducing skills during an evening talk, “Living Without Fear,” May 28, at Sutter Lakeside Hospital & Center for Health’s Wellness Center.
Webster’s defines fear as, “an unpleasant emotional state characterized by anticipation of pain or distress.” Dr. McQuaid reminds people the key word in the preceding definition is anticipation.
