How to stop worrying?

Do you worry too much thinking what will happen to your life? It’s good, you should worry about your life. No one else gonna worry for your life. But do you worry too much that its spoiling your fashionable life style? You shouldn’t worry too much. Now, How to stop worrying too much?

I am going to help you with few tactics that I apply in my life. So let’s start-

There’s no magic formula that will stop you worrying. But you have few steps, if you follow them you can definitely deal with your worries.

These steps are known as problem solving steps-

  1. Get the facts.
  2. Analyze the facts.
  3. Arrive at a decision—and then act on that decision

Do you know Aristotole? He was a great philosopher and polymath at the time of Ancient Greece. This method was taught by him. Yes, it’s that simple. And you must use it if you want to solve your problems that are harassing you.

GET THE FACTS:

It is very important to get the facts, because unless you have the facts you can  not possibly attempt to solve the problems intelligently. Without the facts you’ll be in confusion and confusion is the chief cause of worry.

H.E Hawkes, Dean, Columbia University says ‘Half the worry in the world is caused by people trying to make decisions before they have sufficient knowledge on which to base a decision. As an example, he said- “If I have a problem which has to be faced at three o clock next Tuesday, I refuse to even try to make a decision about it until next Tuesday arrives. In the meantime I concentrate on getting all the facts that bear on the problem. I don’t worry,” he said.

“I don’t agonize over my problem. I don’t lose any sleep. I simply concentrate on getting the facts. And by the time Tuesday rolls around, if I’ve  got all the facts, the problem usually solves itself.”

So, When a decision is reached after completely analysing the facts then execute the decision, throw all responsibilities and stop even caring about the outcome. That means, don’t lose yourself in self-doubting which begins other doubts.

So. Why don’t you employ this technique to one of your worries right now?

Ask yourself these-

a) What am I worrying about?                                  

 b) What can I do about it?

 c) Here is what I am going to do about it.

 d) When am I going to start doing it?
