Worrying about a problem never eradicates it. In fact, the more you worry about something, the more insurmountable the issue begins to appear. But if you gave it a thought, worry stems from fear of the unknown. It is primarily anxiety about the future that creates worry. You worry about something that is yet to happen – something in the future, something that does not exist and something that might never ever come to pass. You should understand that your only reality is your present and you dealing with your present in the now is you living your life. Therefore, worrying is, undeniably, futile. Listed below are 6 tips on how to stop worrying.

1. Get a distraction

First and foremost, distract yourself from the problem at hand. This is actually easier done than said! All you need to do is pursue something that you love. Watch a movie, go to the gym, sing a song, paint or do anything that makes you feel happy.

2. Face the problem

It is always better to face the problem or issue than avoiding it. If it is something that is bothering you, you might as well deal with it and get over with it for good. Facing the problem will give you insight and creative ideas as to what you should do to improve the situation or avert anything unpleasant or unwanted related to it.

3. Chalk out a plan of action

If you know the problem, you can certainly find out what to do to get rid of it. So take the steps necessary that will make you feel good and eradicate the reason for your worry in the first place. Chalk out a plan of action that you would need to follow in order to achieve this, and you will have successfully stopped worrying unnecessarily.

4. Write it down

Another way to stop worrying is to write down elaborately about the issue that is making you worry. Writing down about a problem sometimes opens your mind and helps you find a solution which you could not have discovered if you had only continued to worry. Writing down about the problem helps you find innovative ways to improve the situation drastically.

5. Seek help

No matter what the problem or issue is, you can always seek help from family and friends. In fact, sometimes even complete strangers can be extremely helpful. Do not feel embarrassed or ashamed in asking for help, because people are in fact happier to help out than popular belief!

6. Relax

Last but not the least, take a deep breath and relax. Sometimes, worrying can take a toll on your body and health. So give your body rest; just lie down for a while or go for a massage. Relaxing your body relaxes your mind as well and in fact, helps you see things from a different perspective and, sometimes, come up with a solution.

Remember that worrying about something will not rid you of the problem. But dealing with it, and taking steps to really do something about it will change your life positively. So follow these tips and become free of worry!
