Life Lesson Fortune #1
Instead of worrying and agonizing, move ahead constructively.
How many times have you worried about something so much it affects every minute of your waking hour? Being worried about something can create so much extra stress in our daily lives. Whether it being late on a bill, having to study for a major exam or your relationship is on rocky territory. The feeling of being out of control can make it so that we lose our sanity. Here are 5 ways to be worry free and not a worry wart.
Mindfulness- All I can say is practice this and feel all the worry you once experienced feel a little lighter. Mindfulness allows you to relax, take a moment not to think and give your body some clarity. A great exercise is to take a slow deep breathe in and think of the word calm, and a slow deep breather out saying the word peace. Allow your body to be calm and let it find some peace if only for a few minutes.
Get Rid of The All or Nothing Attitude- Sometimes we have to just admit there will be no straightforward answer to our problems. Sometimes we need to think outside the box and decipher if there is a solution. Be able to sit down and look for other answers you might even find one better than your original idea.
Focus on What is Positive- I feel like this can be really hard to do in certain situations. Being able to see the positive in any situation can give a person directly in their life. It tells that person that even in the darkest of times there will always be a little light.
Slow Down- Nowadays the world is rushing. many problems can be created by not being able to slow down and take time with something. If we don’t stop and think about issues we deal with we may not make the best choice. The next time a problem arises take a break and think about all the outcomes. The longer you take time to look at all solutions the better your choices will be.
Talk it out- Getting things out in the open can not only help you but will also help others around you. Your worry may be causing you to be short with your family or friends. You might have worry about someone close to you and by being able to discuss these things will build trust in your relationship. Talk it out and feel the weight of all your worry disappear.
