Tips to worry less
1. Practice mindfulnessMindfulness is the practice of being fully present in the current moment. It’s a type of meditation where you observe anxious or worried thoughts without judgment. The more mindful you become, the less your worrying thoughts will spiral out of control. You’ll be able to observe a worrying thought without having a distressed emotional reaction. Since both your body and mind suffer when you’re worried or stressed, worrying fewer benefits your whole-body health. There are lots of ways to practice mindfulness. A simple way is to check in with yourself each day, paying attention to how your body feels and what’s going on in your mind. Or, try taking a walk and intentionally using all your senses to take in the environment around you.
2. Take a walk or jogMoving your body is a great way to get out of your head and stop worrying about the future. Studies show that exercise like walking or jogging for 30 minutes per day, three days each week has benefits such as:
- Reducing anxiety
- Improving your sleep
- Improving your mood
