It is often said that each person has a different personality. What kind of personalities do you all have? However, you don’t really know yourself, do you? I am the same way.
For example, there are various personalities such as serious, optimistic, free-spirited, curious, patient, etc. If you have a high degree of worry among them, you will be mentally and physically exhausted. So, here are some tips to help you change your mind.
1. Let’s trust people a little more than we do now
No matter how anxious you are, it is impossible to understand everything that goes on in another person’s mind. You will never know the answer to your question by wondering what they think about you. In some cases, they may not even think much of you. Therefore, the fear that “they will think badly of me” does not apply in most cases. Let’s stop worrying excessively.
2. Do not overestimate your concerns
Worriers tend to take problems more seriously than necessary. “What if it happens…”, “What if I fail…”, “What if it happens in the future…” If you think of or use many of these phrases, you may envision a future in which you fail on your own, and as a result, you may become mentally overwhelmed. You should try to think more realistically and spend less time worrying about things that are out of your control.
3. Write down your concerns on a piece of paper
By writing down your concerns, you can calmly see whether they are things you should or should not worry about. Something worth worrying about is something for which worrying improves the outcome. In other words, it would be a positive worry. I think those concerns should be addressed appropriately.
On the other hand, if you feel that you cannot control the worry, you should quickly let go of it and feel refreshed.
I think it is more important to think about what to do about the reality that is happening here and now than to worry about a future that is unlikely to happen and that we cannot control.
4. Don’t get caught up in emotions, do what’s in front of you
It is not good to worry too much about the future and neglect what is necessary now. It may cause you to worry even more. To avoid this, we need to look at our emotions objectively and analyze them calmly.
There is a good way to do this. Try to look at yourself from a bird’s eye view and think, “I’m having worrisome feelings right now.” In other words, by taking a step back and thinking about it, it is easier to remain calm and less likely to become extremely anxious.
Put aside your unanswered concerns and focus on what is in front of you now.
5. Sometimes it’s important to embrace worry
No matter what measures we take, it is natural that concerns will arise. If this is the case, it may be a good idea to take advantage of it. Worrying in moderation is a good way to protect yourself, so there is no need to zero in. And if you use it well, it may help you solve problems.
Again, if it is not excessive worry, it is an important emotion that protects our lives. Let’s deal with anxiety within healthy limits, stay calm, take action when we need to, and make our lives better.
