Focus on the excitement you feel and not on the anxiety
Anxiety and stress are two factors that can destroy self-confidence because when they attack us, we forget what we wanted to say or do.

When you focus on the excitement you feel at moments that can be stressful, your body will release a burst of adrenalin that will not only allow you to get through them safely, but will increase your self-confidence immeasurably.
By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders.

Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
