Conquer your fear of heights...for good

You're an accomplished
person, but you can't bring
yourself to look out your
corner window on the
sixth floor. You're not alone:
Acrophobia, or fear of
heights, is the second most
common phobia, and it
affects up to 9 percent of
women. "Fortunately, you can
usually treat it on your own,"
says Martin M. Antony, Ph.D.,
author of Overcoming Fear of
Heights
. The key is to expose
yourself to gradually
increasing heights. Start by
confronting the least scary
one you can tolerate and build
up from there. Eventually you
will overcome your fear-
and feel on top of the world.
