“A day of worry is more exhausting than a week of work”. John Lubbock
The human brain is the most complicated object in the whole Universe. It functions 24 hours a day. It’s not a surprise its power is magnificent. And we constantly torture it with worries.
That’s right. A lot of work to do. Bills to pay. People and situations to deal with…Worries eat us alive. We know that we are not given a power which can change things from the past. Moreover, we can’t predict what will happen in the future either.
Nevertheless, we still swim into some unnecessary worries. Every second. All the time. It seems like we can’t stop. They have embittered our life.
Is there anything you can do to stop your worries damage your brain?
Certainly. Here are some valuable tips that will help you master the art of brain training to stop worrying.
TALK ABOUT/WRITE DOWN YOUR WORRIES
You worry too much and hold it to yourself? Please don’t. Call your family member or friend, go for a cup of coffee and tell them your worries.
Can’t sleep at night? Have nightmares? Take a piece of paper and release your thoughts on it.
When you share your worries or write them, they automatically become a half. Everything that overwhelmed you is split into 2 parts and therefore it’s much easier.
Meditation slows things down. It helps us to start to focus on the present moment. It gives a sense of tranquility and inner peace.
Find yourself a place where you can sit. Close your eyes. Focus on “now”. Breathe. You’ll feel comfortable and relaxed, out of stress.
When you meditate, you stop worrying. You give your mind a pause from everything.
INVOLVE YOURSELF IN A PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
Have a walk. Ride a bike. Dance. Exercise is a natural anti-stress treatment. Moreover, it’s effective.
When you do a physical activity, you focus on the movements your body does. Also, you focus on everything that surrounds you. You forget about worries; they seem to lose their power.
You enjoy that wonderful feeling. You let your brain breathe. You release it from the poisonous prison of constant worries.
STAY AWAY FROM SOCIAL MEDIAS
Social media is one of the factors that cause worry. Just because everyone is happy. Everyone succeeds. Everything seems to be so perfect there. And everything is so fake. You start to compare with people.
Therefore, instead of imagining and getting depressed, get connected to real life. Let your brain breathe freely.
THE LAW OF ATTRACTION
What you think about is what you attract. When you bring negative energy to your thoughts, worries seem to be endless. That has a negative impact on your brain.
Therefore, focus on “today” and train yourself to think positively.
Don’t think too much. Don’t worry. Laugh. Be happy.
I know that it’s all difficult in practice, but it can be achievable. You can do it.
Your brain will be thankful.
