STOP WORRYING

Sylvia Marina - Monday, November 30, 2015

STOP WORRYING…written by Sylvia Marina

Worry is a total waste of time.

It doesn’t change anything.

All is does is steal your joy.

It’s tough, frustrating, sometimes tormenting, those moments and days waiting for results.

The exam results, the infringement notice – you know the speed camera flashed your excess – but exactly how much over the limit... worry, worry... financial pressure, insecurities... the unprepared for pregnancy test, result... the diagnosis...

Worry is that internal uneasiness that happens when we are overly concerned about a problem or situation. The mind goes into overdrive and soon we are into over-thinking, focusing on ‘what might happen’ and distorting reality.

When worrying becomes excessive, it creates high anxiety and can even cause you to be physically ill.

However there is another aspect to worry. Worrying can be helpful when it spurs you to take action and solve a problem.

I have a client who worries excessively. Of the many worries that she carries, one relates to her daughter-in-law, she feels she is not concerned enough.
I happen to know. Daughter-in-law is concerned and her drive is to take action, she is researching, changing family diet and household cleaning products, she is a silent activist in changing all possible contributing factors to the family member health challenge.  

MIL (mother-in-law) is preoccupied with the worst-case scenario. Worry for her has become a problem. 

Constant worry, doubts and fears are paralysing, they sap your emotional energy, cause self doubt, send spiritual practices spiralling, elevate anxiety levels and interfere with your ability to concentrate and efficiently articulate daily your life. Worry occupies your mind and interferes with your ability to be present.

Worry can be helpful when it spurs you to take action and solve a problem. Chronic worrying is a mental habit that can be changed. You can train your brain – this is what MIL (mother-in-law) is doing.

Keep life in perspective. There are times when worry pushes us to research more before making a decision. To ask wise questions and prepare ourselves for the future, the interview, the exam, the proposal! 

When worry, fear or anxiety becomes so irrational you can’t focus on reality or think clearly - it interferes with your daily life, sleep, appetite, digestion, patience, relationships, work performance. 

Uncertainty is part of life. Excessively worrying about uncertainty is debilitating causing cognitive distortion. Cognitive distortions are not based on reality they are a life-long pattern of thinking that has become automatic. 

The good news - it is possible to stop the habit of worry, you must retrain the brain.
