How to Stop Worrying in Less Than 4 Minutes

How to Stop Worrying in Less Than 4 Minutes

Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.― Corrie ten Boom

I am an addict. I’m addicted to thoughts. This never-stopping flow takes over and there seems to be no escape from it. I’m also a huge fan of over-thinking! Then comes that obsessive worrying and starts foxtrotting in my mind. It starts small. It starts from over-analysing something that didn’t go smoothly in the past and ends with a wish to go back in time and change it.

Then comes worrying about the future and this roller-coaster continues ever since… Our mind is like a pendulum that swings back and forth from one thought to another taking us deeper into the anguish of worrying.

When the fast going river of life takes over, we feel as if we gave in and lost control and the only thing to do is to surrender and go with the flow of whatever new challenges of tomorrow might bring.

When something unexpected happens it’s hard to refrain from lashing out. What we need is some time to think in a place where we can get a grip. A place where you can always go back to calm down and then with refreshed mind carry on with your daily challenges.

Have you ever considered yourself addicted to thoughts and worrying? Here are two things that helped me stop worrying in less than 4 minutes.
