What is a phobia?

According to the National Institutes of Health, a specific phobia involves marked and persistent fear and avoidance of a specific object or situation. This type of phobia includes, but is not limited to, the fear of heights, spiders, and flying.  Phobias can also include fear of social situations, sickness and other things limit the lives of those who suffer from them.

How do phobias affect how we feel?

Phobias aren’t just what you see on television or in the movies. Most people’s fear is triggered just by talking about it or seeing a photo. What they fear doesn't even have to be in their presence - which means that the very idea of it causes stress and which also makes it more controllable. You can change how you feel by changing how you think.

How do you know if you have a phobia?

Do you experience stress, anxiety, sweat, a faster heartbeat, a terrible feeling or tense muscles while thinking about or being in the presence of what you fear?  Do you go out of your way to avoid situations involving your fear? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have a phobia. The National Institutes of Health says that 8.7% of the American population has a phobia-and that's only who they can account for. Nearly everyone fears something.

What are three quick things you can do for relief right now?

1. Ask your self, am I in danger? If the answer is no, continue to step two. 
2. Breath in for three seconds, hold for three seconds and breath out for three seconds, deliberately. 
3. Recognize that what you are thinking about can be shrunk in size so it changes how you feel. Join us on Phobia Relief Day and find out how to further learn how to go from fear to freedom. 

Who can gain Phobia Relief?

Everyone who wants to get beyond their fears and become a better person—parent, spouse, worker or friend.
