Become more comfortable with uncertainty. Being comfortable with not knowing can help to reduce your anxiety. To become more comfortable with uncertainty practice gradually facing uncertainty in your daily life by reducing certainty-seeking behaviors. For example, resist the urge to seek out an answer to a question by emailing someone or go for a walk without checking the weather. By incorporating this new behavior into your daily life you will have more tolerance with changes that occur.
