4 Ways to Eliminate Worry; Be More Relaxed Every Day

By Genevieve Cunningham

Worry may be unnecessary, but that doesn’t mean that most of us don’t suffer from some serious worry moments. From our health or the health of our loved ones to money troubles to problems at work, worry is an unfortunate part of life. Worry is not only bothersome, it can be downright unhealthy. It can lead to stress, which then leads to other unhealthy side effects. If you worry too much and want to stop, take a look at these four ways to eliminate worry and enjoy a more relaxed lifestyle every day.

Set a Time Limit

You’re probably not going to go from serious worrier to easy and carefree in a day’s time. Instead, allow yourself a little bit of time every day to do your worrying. Set a time limit, and stick to it. Give yourself 10 minutes. It can be all at once, or broken down into smaller segments. It should be whatever works for you. Once your quota has been met, you have to stop. If you find yourself worrying outside of your time frame, get up and do something else. Before long, you’ll be able to lessen your worry time until it’s virtually non-existent.

Say No

Sometimes we worry because we simply have too much on our plate. A very useful tool to end worrying is learning to use the word no. Can you take on this new project at work even though you’re already swamped? No. Can you drive carpool this week even though you’re supposed to be an hour early to the office? No. The world won’t stop spinning just because you can’t complete a task. Delegate, ask for help, and just say no to keep your worries to a minimum.

Prepare for the Future

Don’t dwell on the future because it’s not guaranteed. Instead, prepare for it. Get yourself a slight cushion in your bank account. Plan ahead for school and training purposes. Make plans and put them on a calendar. All of that is fine. Instead of simply worrying about what tomorrow brings, make some plans and get yourself as prepared as possible. Then leave the rest out there for someone else to worry about.

Let Go of Failures

One of the worst things you can do is to worry about past events. I do this all of the time. Did I sound stupid? Should I have done this particular thing differently? Stop! It’s over, and so worrying about it won’t change anything. Instead, accept failures and fix mistakes and move on. This will make big improvements in your life and keep you from making yourself sick with worry that no longer matters.

Worry is like a rocking chair. You move back and forth, but you never really go anywhere. Eliminate the worry from your life with these simple tips. It might take some time and some serious determination, but it can be done. In doing so, you might see a nice improvement in your physical and mental health, and a nice positive change in your perspective on life.
