How to Overcome Performance Anxiety in Men without Medication
November 26, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsAccording to blogger Ryan Collins, successfully learning how to overcome performance anxiety does not always have to include medication. Collins views medication as a last resort, and not the ideal option for overcoming performance anxiety in men.
Collins believes this rings especially true with regards to performance anxiety in bed.
"Performance anxiety in the bedroom is incredibly common among both young and older men" says Collins.
According to the blogger, performance anxiety in men can detrimentally affect a man's self-confidence and intimate relationships.
Collins claims that curing performance anxiety without medication is possible because anxiety is caused by habitual negative thought patterns, self-doubt and worry about past and future experiences.

Therefore, according to Collins, overcoming performance anxiety is as simple as learning new ways of diminishing negative thought patterns, self-doubt and worry about past and future experiences.
"By diminishing negative thoughts, doubt and worry, a man can instantly begin to overcome performance anxiety" says Collins.
