Puts a new perspective on worry doesn't it?
Consider for a moment. How much of your day do you spend worried about something? Is the time and energy you spend worrying about that something helping you resolve it, or just making you more stressed out?
I'm not saying that we shouldn't ever be worried. There are many times in life where worry and concern are valid emotions. But, are we worried about more than we need to be and more often than is helpful?
If you find yourself worried about things that happened long ago, here's some sage wisdom from Ralph Waldo Emerson.
One- journal about what you are worried about. Write about it in detail. Often times we simply need a place for the fears and worries to land. They need a voice. They need expression. This can help to put the thoughts into perspective. It can also help to remind us that the thoughts are just that, thoughts. We are always free to think another thought. Did you know that not worrying is a possibility?
Two - notice where you feel the worry feelings in your body and then breathe into those areas. For example, where do you feel anxious, tight, or constricted? Concetrate on showering breath anywhere you feel these feelings. Take long, deep inhales and exhales. Repeat as often as needed.
Feeling stuck? If you find yourself having incessant worry thoughts and feelings that just won't go away no matter what, schedule a session with Coach Lorie. Lorie will help you identify the root cause and make peace with them.
