Here’s how to stop your brain from excessive worrying
Van Wilder rightly said that worrying is like a rocking chair which keeps you moving but does not take you anywhere, it saps you off all the positivity and happiness out of your system and leaves you drained and exhausted when it comes to fight the actual battles of life, for which you were busy “worrying” all this time anyways… it’s always a loose- loose battle.
1 Why do we need to fight it?
In fact faster we nip this chronic disease the better it is for our well being both physically as well as emotionally. Here are few ways to deal with excessive worrying which can sure prove to be helpful. As it has been medically proven, that excessive worrying cause’s heart conditions, asthma, early aging, decreased sensory perception and even full blown palpitations and anxiety attacks which can be very scary indeed. Even diabetes and cholesterol has been a byproduct of stress and worrying. Here are ways to train your brain from excessive worrying.
2 Write down all your worries in a journal
This is by far the most effective technique to fight that motor brain of yours from stop whizzing at the wrong time. Just get up and write it all down. Every single details of it, leaving nothing out as insignificant, because if you’re thinking about it it’s NOT insignificant.
Scientist have proven that journaling like this immediately relives your brain from constant ruminations and makes a tangible to do list which is way more easier to deal with in out active parts of the day. This way we would not cognitively avoid the problems by just thinking in our brains but would actually do some problem solving too.
3 Meditate for worry free brain
Yes it’s an age old method to calm our minds and stop excessive worrying and deal with all our problems patiently and one at a time. Researchers of psychosomatic medicines have concluded that meditation stop excessive worrying, anxiety. The act of closing your eyes for 30 seconds and choose and tune out the stressors of the day is an active way to stop your brain from worrying. Worrying thought would come in your mind but the trick is to let them float by like clouds instead of getting affected by them.
4 Exercise your body and train your mind not to worry
What exercise does to us is it releases small amount of hormones in palpitation and perspiration which would associate with secondary and non dangerous reaction to physical activity. In the absence of this if our mind takes control, no situation is small but a real flight or fight scenario which causes much more heightened anxiety and excessive worrying. The heart rate rise and palpitation here may be quite similar to a heart attack which actually makes the whole worrying cycle scarier. So keep physically fit to keep small stressors under control and not to let them blow up in full scale worry.
