Bear markets are unpleasant, no doubt. If you are an experienced crypto veteran, you will face difficult times. If this is your first cycle, you will learn a lot about yourself and the market. Whoever you are, keep in mind that your anxiety, stress, panic, or moping will never change the price of cryptocurrencies. Good news is that you can turn this negative energy into positive and draw valuable lessons. Remember: mental health matters most.

Keep reading if you intend to survive this crypto winter:

🧘🏻‍♂️ Stop obsessively checking charts every 5 minutes
It’s like reporting bad news to yourself several times a day for months. Either disable notifications or turn them on to signal strong price fluctuations only.

🧘🏻‍♂️ Zoom out the charts
It will help you to see that any time period several years ago is always much lower than today. So it's not about 'if', it's about 'when'.

🧘🏻‍♂️ Be tolerant of losses
There's such a psychological concept as loss aversion. It's when the response to losses is stronger than the response to the respective wins. The truth is when everything's fine, it's even better than you think; but when it's bad, it isn't as bad as you think. 

🧘🏻‍♂️ Keep your portfolio up to date
Top 2017 tokens: OMG, ICON, MIOTA, TENX, NEM, NXT, etc. Many of these tokens dropped by 95% and nobody has heard about them since then while some tokens turned out to be scams. Let your portfolio consist of those tokens whose longevity you are confident of and give them some rest, cool off.

🧘🏻‍♂️ Cope with burnout 
Burnout is the absence of two elements: balance and reward.

Balance. Let's be honest: holding tokens in a bear market is 65% boredom, 25% outright panic, and 10% worthless optimism. If cryptocurrency has become the dominant sphere of your life, shift the priorities.

Rewards. There are many other ways to find rewards in cryptocurrency except for money profit: join a DAO, participate in new Web3 products, catch an airdrop, etc. 

🧘🏻‍♂️ Study your macropsychology
Ultimately, it's never about cryptocurrency. It’s about your psychology that is the cornerstone of everything. 

🧘🏻‍♂️ Do not quit the game - go deeper
The outstanding projects of the next bull cycle will be launched in the depths of this bear cycle. So instead of quitting now, focus on improving your knowledge.
