How do you let go and stop worrying about something you can't control?
My mother always says that there is a power beyond us that you can surrender to or relinquish your worries to, and once you do that, it is all about faith. Let go and surrender. Let God or the higher powers worry for you! It takes a lot of energy to worry, consequently I try not to. It can be difficult, but letting go is helpful.
I actually wrote about this very thing. It is amazing how life opens up to us when we release our grip! http://g-girl11.hubpages.com/hub/How-to … f-Anything
Distract yourself, get busy, stop thinking and get moving!
I agree with someone who commented before me about busying yourself. I am prone to anxiety, and the only thing that works for me is to force myself to focus on something unrelated to what troubles me. If it's something you can't even control, then it's a waste of your time and energy to worry about it.
Turn on some music and do a little dance, watch a movie, do something you enjoy, and above all--laugh and smile!
I don't often worry about things I can't control because it's a waste of my time and I can't stand wasting time. It's too precious.
But when I have an issue, I break it down point by point and if it's something I can't fix myself or find help with to resolve, then it's safe to say it's something that can't be controlled or changed. I literally grab air, visualize this mass in my hands and open a window and let it out. Once it's out, I see it breaking up into a million tiny particles and watch it drift into space.
Yes, it sounds "off". But so am I.
I do 2 things:
1) Give it to God. I visualize myself actually handing the problem over to Him...
2) Clean my house! Which is funny because I hate to clean! I think it goes along with what other people have said about keeping busy. But that is the only way I keep busy in that situation. I seriously start to clean my house!
By coming up with a plan to work around it or work with it. Planning helps me with everything.
Meditation helps. It helps us to focus on the most important thing in our life which is ourself and helps us get in touch with that. This helps us to be more in tune with our inner self and will therefore help us to prioritise on things that really matters and let go of things that don't. It also helps us to realize that nothing matters as much as our self, this gradual realization will make us reduce our attachment to the things we cannot control and help us to accept a situation AS IT IS.
Meditation is not that hard. All we need is to find a quiet spot, sit down comfortably, close our eyes and start by concentrating on our breath. No need to control our breath, simply observe it. This helps us to gradually learn how to observe things instead of reacting to them like we always do. You can do this anytime of the day when you are free and you get the chance.
