Simple steps to avoid worrying

Updated on May 6, 2011

Simple steps and tips to avoid worrying

Are you a worry freak person? Some of us are. Worrying is the worst thing that can happen to you, but the good thing is that we can avoid worrying.This hub is about simple steps to avoid worrying.

When you worry, you are stressed out and you suffer from tension, nervous and and you may get headaches too.

Mostly, we worry about money and emotional problems and worst that may happen to us is to worry about things yet to come.

Why do we worry anyway? Because sometimes we think that we don’t have the capability to change a thing and we become hopeless and we just give up.

We just tend to accept the consequences instead of thinking for solution. Sometimes also, we worry because we know the situation, but we are helpless and resigned to ourselves that we cant possibly do anymore to improve it.

How Can we Avoid Worrying?

The worst scenario is to worry about things that are yet to come.Try not to think of the consequences if you cant solve the problem, remember to solve the problem at hand first. Don’t double worry. If you double worry, you just tend to dwell more into worrying and not finding solutions. The more you worry, the more you cant solve anything. I will suggest some tips on how not to worry about anything.

Tips to avoid worrying

Understand the situation/problem at hand. Gather some information in order for you to understand the situation. You might want to talk to the proper authority, gather information about it through the people concerned not the people who are not concerned because it might just be a rumor.

If you understand the problem already, think of a clear cut solutions which you think you are able to do with the problem at hand. Solutions may not come at hand easily and at an instant. It might take longer time for it to be resolved. Try always to weigh the pros and the cons. Ask yourself, is there a solution to it, then analyze the situation. Be realistic too.

After weighing all the possible solutions, and the pros and cons, choose the best solution and apply it to the problem. Keep in mind, time frame, resources needed etc.

Apply the best solution you chose to the problem, and after that stop thinking about it and dont dwell on it. Have a rest and sleep well, try to divert your attention away from the problem, but continue to work on it.

Don’t be embarrass or shy to ask or solicit some help from people whom you know you can ask for help--your family/friend etc (emotional support)

After applying the solution kept in mind:

I AM POSITIVE I CAN SOLVE IT” (power of positive thinking)

“I WILL DO SOMETHING TO RESOLVE IT”-- and even if I can’t change it, “I WILL ACCEPT IT”. Acceptance that this things happen to everybody, you are not alone, and you are still blessed because you have the capability to solve the problem.

      I guess I am one of those born worriers. I worry over simple things and my major worries are matters relating to money. I worry I might not be able to provide for my family's needs and sometimes I sleep at night wishing things will be ok when I wake up.

      Never be a worry wart,

      it's such an awful thing,

      why should we when we have a God,

      to whom we our troubles can bring...

      so never never worry,

      just pray to God each day,

      you'll soon be drinking diet pop

      and resting in the shade.

      I prefer to solve problems then worry about them (usually) ;). I think I had the worry center in my brain closed for re-furbishment a while ago and the builders have been off on a break for a long time. When I cannot solve a problem the message from the worry center in my brain is that they are unavailable due to the refurbishment and that my problem will be dealt with in the order that it came in when the offices are open again. Seriously when I can't solve a problem its like the worry part just happens to be on a lunch break and I can't seem to worry for long, it goes numb instead. I think the trust part of my brain functions much better as I usually just trust that the problem will work itself out somehow so long as I try my best and am willing to work for it things usually seem to work out fine :).
