Mentally overcoming risks
My question is for anyone out there that has had an issue with the mental aspect of the danger with marine animals. I am curious if there are any exercises or specific things you guys do to deal with the anxiety of predators in the water? I grew up land locked in Canada where the only animal in the water is a Northern Pike or a Beaver HAHA, so the thought of doing an open water ocean swim with Sharks, Jellyfish, etc is very intimidating and when I've done it previously I can get weird anxiety just thinking about it. I know its largely an irrational fear but its still something I need to deal with! Any tips or tricks would be hugely appreciated!
