How To Be A Wonder Woman, IRL
When it comes to feeling fearless in any situation we’re chanelling the original *fist pump* female role model, Wonder Woman. Get involved...
1 stretch your skills
Wonder Woman might have the martial arts edge (Sword fighting? Tick. Deadly Combat training? Tick.) but what’s your USP? Find your strength or take your passion to the limit – whether it’s joining a sports team, or doing an online course. You have the power...
2 make That move
Want to make some big changes in your life? Moving forward always calls for decisive action. ‘You need to apply reason, logic and intuition while considering values and past experiences,’ says life coach Mikaela Pugh. ‘Ask yourself: what is the worst thing that can happen? What is the best thing that could happen? What will happen if I don’t make this decision? If your answers sway in favour of you making the decision, do it!’
3 Take control
Things you need to resolve at work or in your relationships? ‘Do your best to work through the issue, but first take some time to sit and watch thoughts and feelings arising within,’ says Oli Doyle, author of Mindfulness at Work.
‘Allow them to be there, but don’t let them control your response. Let them pass before attempting to address the issue.’
4 overcome your fears
Fear and anxiety can be overwhelming and even suffocating. Although you might not feel like it, facing your fears is the best way to fight them. Imagining the worstcase scenario and weighing up the likelihood of this happening can also help erase fearful thoughts.

5 Build inner strength
Every superhero knows how to find her inner warrior when she needs to – and you’re no different! Try looking back on how you’ve dealt with tough situations in the past and remind yourself of how resourceful and capable you actually are. Stay focused on your closest family and friends and lean on them when you need to – asking for help IS a sign of strength and having allies on your side is always a winner. You are more powerful than you know!
