Hi my loves! I hope all of you are having a fantastic day. Today I wanted to talk about something that is close to all of our hearts and that’s the fact that worrying sucks. Everybody has worries in life – it’s just how we are as people.
But sometimes that worrying can go too far and leave us drained, exhausted, and it can even lower our self-esteem. I wanted to help all of you out with the different ways you can stop worrying and just be happy to live in the moment. These are a few techniques you can do and think about whenever you start to worry too much about anything!
Stop Yourself and Think About Positive Outcomes
We all can get too caught up in our worries and what negative things may come with whatever we’re worrying about. If you want to stop worrying, you should stop and take some time to think about the positive things that can happen instead of all the negative things.
If you start doing this every single time you start worrying, your brain will actually get used to thinking about positive things when you worry. That way you can turn that anxiety into something good!
This may not seem like it’s all that connected to worrying but it actually can be. Many of us worry because we’re really stressed out about something – I can definitely relate to this. Exercising actually reduces your stress and helps you think clearly.
Instead of spending an hour worrying about something, take that hour and go work hard at the gym. You may even find that the gym will give your more confidence and having confidence can also help you deal with any worries you may have.
Talk to Someone Close to You
Talking to your support system about your worries is a great way to get them off your chest and to get a second opinion. Getting a friend’s take on your situation can also help you realize that you may be overreacting and you have nothing to worry about. Their advice may also help you with your situation!
Write Your Worries Down in a Journal
If you don’t want to talk to anyone about what’s going on in your head you can also write down your worries in a notebook. Sometimes seeing your fears written down can help you realize that they’re not all that bad after all. You can also use this as an exercise to write down your worries and then write down what good can come out of it.
Take a Deep Breath and Realize that Everything Will Work Out in the End
This is the most important thing to do if you worry a lot. Just sit back, take a deep breath, and know that everything will work out in the end. Sometimes we worry for absolutely no reason and if you realize this, it’ll help you feel better about whatever it is you’re worry about.
Worrying can put a damper on your whole day and even prevent you from achieving some of your goals. If you practice these simple steps every time you start to worry it can help you stop worrying so much so you can actually take control of your problems with a clear head!
