Signs that you constantly worry
Do you worry a lot?
Everyone worries whether it be over a little problem or a big problem but when does worrying about stuff become a health hazard? I've put together some signs that you or somebody you may know worries to much in their life.
Sleep: You find it hard getting to sleep. For example, You get into bed then all of a sudden you think your oven is on, if you don't check you get an image that your house will burn down and everyone will die. Your mind overreacts and it can be very dramatic. If your finding it hard to get to sleep you could be also waking up on edge.
Be aware constant checking can be a sign of obsessive compulsive disorder.
Concentration: You have had a long day, you just want to relax, so you go to sit down and watch a film but your mind keeps going over things. You just can't get involved in what your trying to watch. You find this happening most of the time or other people have not your behaviour.
Overthinking: If you worry a lot you can go over and over the tiniest of details of a situation. You could be going over something that happened years ago. This is very tiring for your mind. You could also be going over a conversation you had with somebody, wondering what that person meant by something they said or even going over what you said analysing whether something sounded ok or not.
Worrying is part of anxiety. Mindfulness and relaxing can help quieten the thoughts of constant worrying. Being in the present moment can help your mind stop racing.. Remember worrying does not solve anything, it just keeps your mind busy and makes you tired. Another good way to find out if your worries are important or not is to ask yourself the question, can I solve this problem?
Stop your suffering and become aware in the present moment.
