The Oscar-winning star Jeff Bridges reveals his secret on how he manages to cope with anxiety. The 66-year-old actor mentions that the advice that his mother gave him at a younger age, has helped him a lot in dealing with anxiety all through his life.
Jeff advised all to stay calm and enjoy the moment and never take things too seriously.
"There's a lot of anxiety in film-making; you get flops and a fear of failure. But when I went off to work as a young kid, my mom would always say, 'Remember now: have fun, and don't take it too seriously.' That advice has really served me. Don't take yourself too damn seriously." He said.
Jeff also said that it feels good when things fall in according to the order. But when it doesn't, just relax.
"You always have high hopes when you start out and every once in a while those hopes are transcended. It's even better than you thought. Sometimes the pieces don't quite come together. Most often, actually. It's kind of weird when it all comes together, but when it does it feels great."
He said, Lloyd Bridges, his father has given him acting lessons, but it is his mother's advice which helps him to stay calm and composed even at the most adverse situation in life.
