1. Let yourself be a beginner.
Taking some pressure off yourself first is a good way to ease any anxiety you might have. “Give yourself permission to not know everything about how to approach something so you don’t feel like you need to be an expert or have everything figured out,” Appio suggests. “When you allow yourself to be a beginner, you’ll restore your sense of play, curiosity, and adventure, which usually help you keep moving forward.” How true!
