IF YOU CAN SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM,
THEN WHAT IS THE NEED OF 
WORRYING?

IF YOU CANNOT SOLVE IT, THEN WHAT IS THE USE OF
WORRYING?


Worrying, although it seems to come naturally to us, is a great way to waste time. Nothing changes by worrying, nothing is fixed by worrying, although it does keep your mind occupied while you have the problem.

Worrying causes stress, and doesn't resolve anything, but it certainly kicks in the minute you are presented with a problem. Hopefully, it's temporary, while you sort the situation in your mind and decide on the solution, but if unable to find any solution, it will probably consume your every waking moment. What to do? If you are being a worry wart, it means that you are not living in the present. You have a fear that something will happen or a concern about something that has happened, you are not right here, right now. You need to disconnect from the thoughts in your head and reconnect with what is actually happening now.

Two ways to reconnect with what is happening right now: www.positivityblog.com
  1. Slow down. Do whatever you are doing right now but do it slower. Move, talk, eat or ride your bicycle slower. ...
  2. Disrupt and reconnect. If you feel you are starting to worry then disrupt that thought by shouting this to yourself in your mind: STOP!

“If a problem is fixable, if a situation is such that you can do something about it, then there is no need to worry. If it's not fixable, then there is no help in worrying. There is no benefit in worrying whatsoever.”
