Do you think worrying serves you in a productive way?
Do you know how much you worry? Most people don’t even know that they spend a large portion of their day and worry. The way worry shows up in the body is anxiety. A good practice to get into throughout the day would be to check in with yourself to see if you have anxiety and why.
Does worrying help the outcome of situations? I have never seen a situation were worrying makes an outcome better. If anything the anxiety from worrying adds gas to the fire. Also if you are trying to enjoy yourself and you are worrying about something else it ruins the moment.
“Worrying doesn’t make things not happen, it just ruins the moments your in.”
I just got off the phone with the client and she’s a bit of a worrier and she is planning a trip away with her husband for the weekend and leaving her children. She admitted that she would probably be worrying while she’s gone. I asked her if she thought that worrying about something happening would make it not happen, and of course she said no. She will handle any situation that comes up, if something happens. Worrying about something happening doesn’t make it not happen, it just takes us out of the moment we are in and drops us into the future where something bad might happen. Might-being the optimum word here.
I’m really working with this client to slow down her mind and check in with her self many times throughout the day to see if she is anxious and if she is to see what old beliefs she is buying into.
I think that anxiety is running rampant in our society, not just an adult but with our children as well. A lot of this has to do with not accepting life as it is and always trying to figure out how to make life what we wanted to be. This would give anybody anxiety!
