Anxiety is your brain’s way of telling you something is wrong. For example, if your at a social event, like a performance, recital, etc, and you get anxious, that’s your brain telling you that you could mess up and make a fool of yourself. A way to stop anxiety is by recognizing that yes, you could mess up, there for sending a message up to your brain that you got the message and he should stop telling you. If this keeps happening, then you should start acting on it. Go over what your going to say, how you’re going to act, and going over all the possible flaws and taking steps to avoid them.
A way to help separate yourself from a stressful or scary moment, away from the tumult in your mind, is to practice ‘being the eye of the storm.’ If you’ve ever seen footage of a hurricane passing over head, than what happens before the eye of the storm passes above you is total chaos; of course it is, it’s a hurricane. But then as the eye of the storm passes over you, it all stops; there's no wind, no rain, not even clouds. You can even see the stars as if it’s the calmest nights. Then the hurricane comes back and everyone dies, but that's not important. The point is, you can stay in the middle where it’s calm you just have to practice putting yourself there, and bringing yourself back when you stray.
