Breaking the Worry Cycle
Worrying and fretting is in fact a practice — and one that’s often really challenging to break. Persistent worriers are so hectic forecasting themselves into a future filled with devastating repercussions that they miss out on what is going on presently.
The “what ifs” that worriers mull over seldom come to life, however they can damage the psychological and physical health of the individual stressing.
Breaking The Cycle
Breaking this cycle takes a great deal of practice. You’ve got to pull yourself back from nervous ideas about the future and plant yourself securely in the present, so you can observe and determine the issues and after that do something about them. Here are some pointers to break the worry cycle and live a conscious life so you can contact your feelings:
It will not do you much good to combat the sensations, so simply acknowledge them and observe why you’ve having them. If so, you can start to evaluate those sensations for what they are — unproven worry– and then let them go.
Do not take up the concerns for a worry session. You can treat them like passing cloudy weather condition when you acknowledge your concerns. Learn Emotional Freedom Techniques and then tap on the thoughts and feelings to diminish them. It really helps.
Otherwise, when you just focus on the concerns, it’s tough to let them go and go on with your present life. You can end up being paralyzed with worry over possibilities of catastrophe and end up being disillusioned and non-productive.
Take A Look At The Habits Of Non Worriers
So let us look at habits of people who are non worriers and see what we can learn from it and do differently.
Research studies suggest that these individuals have specific strategies they utilize to squelch the concern by turning it into something efficient and favorable. Here are a few of the practices that non-worriers integrate in their lives to minimize the effect of concern:
Keep perspective – Non-worriers have the ability to separate themselves from a circumstance so they can increase point of view on the matter. They think about it and decide how likely it is to take place
Ask questions – when the negative thoughts begin to start, this type of person is able to ask relevant questions like “Do I have control over the issue”? or “Is this an impending danger”? The answers help them to adjust their reactions and deal with the situation or even put it out of mind.
Focus on the present – People who don’t worry focus on the present and stay calm. They don’t get carried away with thinking about what might possibly happen. Worriers on the other hand predict the future where turmoil and problems are going to be the outcome.
Decision making – Because of how worriers are reacting they have a difficult time making decisions. Non worriers see more possibilities and opportunities and so have an easier time making decisions.
Other Things To Do
If something has come up that needs taken care of, focus on it and get it done. Don’t put it off while you stress and worry and miss a deadline.
Clutter seems to add to the stress. So declutter your messy desk, declutter your room.
It has been proven that with Multi tasking not as much gets done as doing one thing at a time. So don’t cause more worry by trying to do several things at once.
Take breaks to get some fresh air when working and exercise to burn off some of the stress.
Eat a good nutritious diet, with plenty of vegetables. It provides the vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids that give your body what it needs to feed your brain and nervous system. This can help calm the nervous system.
Acknowledge when worry comes up and with practice you can get ahead on observing the thoughts and feelings, tapping on them with EFT and letting it go.
