More than you would like?
You’re not alone! Today we share some tools you can use to help break the cycle of worry.
Worry Definition; “Feel, or cause to feel, anxious or troubled about actual or potential problems.”
While some worry can be helpful, to assist us in solving problems for example- unnecessary worry, particularly about potential concerns that haven’t actually even happened (the what if’s, and the "maybes”) really serves no positive purpose and can be a big drain on our happiness and flow in life if we can’t find ways to break the cycle.
I hope you enjoy learning about what helps me break this challenging cycle.
3 Life Tools to help!
Bring yourself into the present
Look at a detail of the thing that you might not normally have noticed without being mindful. Then, move to another thing in the room and do the same.
As you look around the room from one object to another take a few deep breaths and say to yourself “I am right here, right now”.
Give yourself a time frame of permission
For example; “I know I am worried about things that may not even happen, but they are concerning me. I will let my mind keep thinking about them for the rest of today only, and I will make a pact with myself to let go of thinking about this by the time I go to bed.”
This can be very freeing- because sometimes we also worry about being worried!
Fill your life with things that don’t leave room for worry
One of the greatest gifts you can give yourself is getting organised - focus on your house, your meal prep, your schedule.
The simple action of taking a daily walk in the fresh air can be game changing!
