Fear

Fear is the state of being afraid. In some cases fear is the result of a lack of faith.

Fear is usually considered a negative emotion, but it also has a positive Biblical meaning, connoting a mixture of awe and respect: "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom" (Proverbs 9:10).

The Ancient Greeks personified fear as a minor deity called Phobos[1], who gives his name to one of the satellites of Mars.

In addition to cultivating one's faith through prayer and practicing virtue, stress management breathing and relaxation techniques, regular meditation and a calming form of daily exercise such as walking, Yoga or Tai Chi could help in the treatment of fear and anxiety.
