This list shows the true ways to worry less that truly have a great impact on the outcomes. You will have the option to worry less. What happens when you worry less? You get more relaxed and peaceful, and feel more joyful and healthy!
So here is the list of 15 ways to worry less right from the beginning.
Try to imagine your future by yourself
Now this technique involves viewing back towards the life assuming yourself in the future perspective.
Like today when we look back in our life we see that we use to worry about the things that were useless. So try to imagine yourself in the future and then look back to the current problem and you can easily see that after few years this thing would be like a small or useless thing to worry about.
This is the reason you have to envision your future self.
Start saying ‘NO’ to people
We usually fear to say No to people.
We have a fear that we may frustrate our loved ones and that they won’t love us any longer.
I personally keep on trying and motivate myself that it’s alright to say ‘NO.’ Because there’s nothing wrong in giving priority to your tasks and to your own-self.
Just you have to consider why you’re saying yes when why you’re saying no.
For instance, you need to relax after some work, but your boss says for more work which is out of your job description or even it is out of your scope. So instead of saying yes or saying amm, sir, this, and that, a clear cut polite no will work more efficiently for you. As you’ll say no after few minutes you will realize going down the stress of responsibility that you might face if you would have said yes at that moment, instead of saying no.
But our fear drives us to say “yes” instead of “No”.
But if you understand that what’s important and focused towards it, you can easily say “no”.
This also helps us to understand that we should only say yes to those things that are under our control or which we can do or can perform easily. When you’ll first say “No”, people will get the idea and will get used to it that this person only says “Yes” when he or she could take responsibility for that, otherwise no chance.
Talk to someone about it
Sometimes, it’s better to talk about all the stresses and worries with someone that you might like to share with. As it give you the better idea that which thing really demands concentration from your side and which does not.
As I state that there are two kinds of stress or worries you can say.
- The positive one, and
- The negative one.
The positive one is good which actually pushes you to take action regarding that particular thing. On the other hand negative one just simply fill your head with stress and fatigue and have zero positive impact.
Imagine if someone was sharing these worries with you
We have seen that it’s easy to advise someone else on anything
Keeping this in mind, start thinking like someone arrived to you and shared the same problem with you that you have in your mind.
What would you suggest that person?
Sometimes, to sort out the problem we need to look it from another angle.
Try this and the results will be awesome.
Take action, try and try again
As we have talked early about it, the positive worries, worrying about something can make us realize that what’s important to us and what’s not.
Then, we can think of the ways how to solve the situation and how can we take control over it.
This in turn, leads towards taking action, so that we could stop worrying about that thing further.
For example, you might be searching for a job, but couldn’t find it.
So what you will do? You will start searching for it. Now this worry leads you towards action, and finally you find one and stop worrying about it anymore.
So, always take action, and if it doesn’t produce any results then try another way but keep trying. As trying and not giving up, leads towards the success.
Seeing worries from a new angle
There’s so much in our mind which makes things harder to look from a different angle. But we have to see things from a different angle. One way of doing it is zooming out of the situation, like thinking it from totally a completely different bird-eye view and try to give it a new look by thinking ahead of the current situation. Like a year or two. Will it matter?
Empty your mind from all of the thoughts
This is closely resembled to the meditation. Sit down in a quiet place or even lay down in a relax position, wherever you want and close down your eyes. Try to listen to all of the thoughts and feelings coming from inside. Do not respond to them but just let them come.
How this will help? You’ll notice as you’ll do this that first your heart beat getting fast and after few minutes your heart beat will get extremely normal and slow. So this will give you basically a thought that everything will be get resolve at its own pace and you will get bit relaxed and try to sort out the thing slowly and steadily. When you get slow you get relaxed and the output will be great.
Exercise is a great way of keeping mind and body healthy. You can do ton of research on Google and find millions of articles on benefits of exercises and sports. But how it can help you or stop you from worrying less?
When you do exercise on a regular basis, your mind and body get fresh, whole new level of oxygen is delivered to the body and mind. Mind is everything, when the mind is fresh, you take healthy decisions. So exercise is always a good option to release stress and work in a positive direction.
Accept the uncertainty even if it’s not on your side.
Accepting the facts and realities plus uncertainty, gives the mind and the body-a relaxed feeling, though it is tough at the start. You don’t know what is going to happen tomorrow, or day after tomorrow. The fear of uncertainty causes worry. So try to accept the uncertainty even if it is causing fear for you to try to embrace it.
Write about it
Writing down your thoughts and worries is always a good option. When you write down your thoughts and worries on paper, you can get some insight into how you feel and what you think. Many psychologist recommend doing this. It brings a distance and gives us a chance to rethink while reading down what we have written and we can think differently.
Live in the present
When you think about the future, you always get worried regarding it like what happened in the past or what will happen in the future. Many people start thinking about the future and forget to live their present. It’s not easy though, but you can worry so much less if you start to live more in the present.
This does not mean that stop planning about it like if you have earned a handsome amount of money then instead of investing it you start to spend it on useless things and end up with empty pockets and start to worry again. So do have a plan, which is our next sub-heading, but do not worry about it, have health plans.
Have a plan
Worry or stress, most of the time happens when you don’t have any plan of doing or completing your things. Like if someone asked you for something, and you’ve said yes to it. Then start planning and keep all things aligned so that every task gets complete in the time frame and you get less worry. Similarly, plan for the things in the future but don’t try to over-think it. Otherwise, it will make you more worried.
Draw the situation and write down all the possible ways
This is simple yet most powerful tool towards more successful planning. You just need to draw the situation that you are facing and then write down all the possible ways that can sort out that particular situation. This will expand your scope towards solving the problem which in return will make you less worry when you’ll have all the possible outcomes.
Try to resolve it by your-self
Do not ask anyone to resolve an issue from your side. Try to resolve it by yourself as when you’ll face any challenge and resolve it by yourself, you’ll end up with more confidence, and plus only you can understand your situation better than anyone else, no one else can understand your situation better than you. So try to resolve your situation by yourself as someone else can even make the situation worse.
There are many articles and books written on different issues and topics along with their solutions. Suppose that you read a book and read about a situation that is similar to yours. Then you’ll instantly remember about the solution that the user took in that book and you can also take a similar step to solve down your problem as well. So reading always helps and broadens your vision as well. Try to read as many books as you can.
We know that stopping worrying isn’t an easy task to do. But if you can slowly and steadily work upon it, you can achieve the desired results as worrying too much for anything does not produce any positive results. But worrying about something positively can help along your way towards success and freedom of your life.
