Dear Entrepreneur,

Remember that this too shall pass. Your family demands more of your time, your body needs some rest or else you will burn out, but your business partners or investors need that report yesterday. Sound familiar?

No one managing his or her own career and personal life is devoid of stress. Too much stress can lead to excessive worry, nervousness, and dread. The first step in overcoming these negative feelings is to recognize that this is a normal emotional state. It’s most commonly identified as “anxiety”.

Although it’s uncomfortable, these negative feelings will all pass. Fighting the anxiety can make it stronger. Paradoxically, accepting that you are feeling anxious helps your body try to naturally relax because you have finally accepted and owned it.

With love,
