HOW CAN THE STILL METHOD HELP ME?

Anxiety is a bit like that annoying, overly cautious friend. Everyone has one; you know that they mean well, but they can also be a bit of a downer. The first thing the STILL Method can help you with is identifying when anxiety is useful, and when it's ok to ignore its overly cautious advice, be afraid, but do it anyway.

 

The other thing to remember is that anxiety doesn't discriminate based on age. That horrible feeling you had in the pit of your stomach when you were little and your teacher asked you a question in front of the whole class, is the exact same feeling you get as an adult. Only this time, you are probably sitting opposite an interview panel when your palms start to sweat. It doesn't matter how old you are, it still feels the same.

 

We will all experience anxiety to varying degrees and experiencing it in excess isn't a character flaw, it's your brain trying to keep you safe. Unfortunately, that deep rooted evolutionary instinct that kept us alive thousands of years ago doesn't always know the difference between a scary sabre tooth tiger and that job interview panel. Which is why it tells you to respond as though you are facing a hungry tiger, instead of Janet from HR. 

If you'd like to do some work on retraining that instinct, so that you can feel more in control, the STILL Method can help you do it.
