Worry – Five Ways To Eliminate It

We all face moments of worry. It’s a natural part of life. But sometimes, worry can spiral out of control, zapping our energy and clouding our minds. Here are five battle-tested strategies I’ve used to silence the worry monster, honed from years of personal experience (yes, I used to be a champion worrier!).

  1. Action Squash Anxiety: Stuck overthinking a goal? The cure is action! Dwelling on hurdles just fuels worry. Take a positive step, however small. It could be research, planning, or even a simple brainstorming session. Just get moving, and watch your worry shrink.

  2. Decide, Don’t Dither: Unresolved issues are worry magnets. Make a decision, even if it’s not perfect. Sometimes, the act of deciding itself eases the burden. Think about that job change, house purchase, or long-overdue phone call. Decide now, or at least gather information to empower your choice. Remember, you can always adjust later if needed.

  3. List It, Liberate It: Feeling overwhelmed? Categorize your worries! Lists are a worrier’s best friend. Jot down tasks, schedule time to address them, and then let them go for now. Simply knowing you have a plan in place can significantly reduce anxiety. Feeling stressed about a phone call? Pop it on your “to-do” list, and feel the worry lessen.

  4. Proactive Problem Solving: Facing real issues? Tackle them head-on! Don’t let them fester and morph into monsters. Remember a stressful business dispute I had? Worry vanished the moment I took action, even before the final resolution (see point #1!). The anticipation of problems is often worse than the problems themselves. Deal with them swiftly and directly, and watch your worry shrink.

  5. Quick Calming Techniques: Need a fast anxiety fix? Meditation is fantastic, but even a brief moment of mindfulness can work wonders. Close your eyes, take a few deep breaths, and release tension from your body. That’s it! Feeling extra stressed? Explore brainwave entrainment – specially designed audio that can help you relax by slowing your brainwaves.

Remember, consistency is key. Find the techniques that work best for you and practice them regularly. Worry won’t disappear overnight, but with these tools in your arsenal, you can silence the inner chatter and reclaim your peace of mind.
