There are practical steps you can take as you seek freedom from your fears. Here a number of suggestions are listed as helps to decrease your anxiety:
Set a time limit on your worries. Probably 98 percent of the things we are anxious about or worry about never happen. Learning to live one day at a time is an art that can be cultivated. (This one tip has helped me a lot through the years). Pick a time of day, i.e., 6:00 PM to 6:30 PM as your worry time. Feel free to be as worried as you like, then when time is up...go live your life, until your next "worry time".
Spend time in meditation and utilize relaxation techniques. We hold our fears and anxieties in our bodies, not only our minds. Pay attention to the various parts of your body, you'll begin to realized the tension and then can let go.
Talk to others about your fears and concerns. When we share with (bear ye one another's burdens, Paul in Galatians) with others it eases our burden. By the way this is a proven fact when brain scans are conducted...we see the difference that sharing with others makes. It eases our burdens and relaxes us emotionally, better enabling us to make decisions and cope with life.
• Divert attention from self to others (Philippians 4:10, 2:3-4). As an individual gets his mind off his own problems by helping others, his anxiety also decreases. God created us in such a way, that we heal by helping others who are hurting.

The Bible is full of truths related to issues such as anxiety and fear. As believers, God gives us authority to use these truths as weapons to combat whatever we experience or feel that doesn’t agree with His Word (see Ephesians 6:17). Here are some verses that you can speak out loud to yourself, yes, this will help tremendously!
“We can confidently say, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?’”
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
“I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.”
“Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him, my Savior and my God.”
“Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.”
“We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.”
—2 Corinthians 4:8-9
“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and loving kindness will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”
“Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.”
