Breaking the Worry Cycle
Worrying is actually a habit – and one that’s sometimes very difficult to break. Chronic worriers are so busy projecting themselves into a future filled with disastrous consequences that they miss the present moment. The “what ifs” that worriers obsess about rarely come true, but can wreak havoc on the physical and mental health of the person worrying.
Breaking the worry cycle takes a lot of practice. You’ve got to pull yourself back from anxious thoughts about the future and plant yourself firmly in the present moment so you can observe and identify the problems and then do something about them.
Here are some tips to break the worry cycle and live a mindful life so you can finally get in touch with your emotions:
It’s especially difficult to break the worry cycle if you’re stressed by deadline or other imminent problem. During these times, try and focus on things to get done in order of how important they are.
Clear out the clutter on your desk so you’ll have a clean slate. And, don’t forget about the clutter in your mind. Exercise, get into the fresh air, listen to music or do something to clear your mind. Begin a task with enthusiasm. That’s an important element in getting your mind on the task at hand.
Worry is annoying and it sometimes seems that you can never get ahead of it, but with practice – you will.
