Constant worrying, negative thinking, and always expecting the worst can take a toll on your emotional health.
Here are 4 Simple Steps to Help You Worry Less:
✅ Acknowledge, observe, and write down your worries, forget about them, and get back to regular programming.
✅ Schedule a worry time to go over your worries for a short period of time every day (if need be).
✅ Challenge your anxious thoughts during your worry time by asking yourself…
- Is it true?
- Is there a more positive way of looking at the situation?
- Will worrying help things?
- What would you say to a friend having this worry?
✅ Stay mindful. Pay attention to your body. Breathe. Stay active. Focus on the present, and break the negativity cycle!
