Be Happy! Why Worry? Hey guys, I hope you are all having a fantastic day. In today’s post, I will be sharing an insight about being happy and do not worry too much. Yes, we are through a whole lot right now with the Lockdown. We all worry about our future, health, and well-being. However, at this time, we must also practice taking control of our mindset by being happy with the few things we have.
Be Happy! Why Worry?
Worry Is A Silent Killer
It is like a slow poison. It is a chronic illness that is much more dreadful than physical diseases. Worry affects not only our body but our mind too.
If you think seriously, you will find that it is no use worrying about anything. It is foolish to worry about the past or future. Nobody can change the past. Whatever has happened has happened. Why worry? How can something that has yet not come to pass affect us? How are we so confident that the future is so bleak? Things may turn out well. Why worry, then? Worrying tire us and diminishes our capacity for clear thinking and planning. It promotes negative thinking. Instead of worrying, we should use positive affirmations and resolutions.
If worry could solve the problem, everybody would worry as much as possible. Problem-solving requires clear thinking and planning. But anxiety makes us incapable of clear thinking and planning. If they are going to happen, many things will happen regardless of our worries.
If It Is Going To Rain, It Will
We worry about small things. The worst-case scenario may not even be bad enough to worry about. You have made your boss angry. You fear that he may fire you. What of it? That is not the end of the world. You are still alive. Perhaps you would get a better job. You dread going to the office the next day. Do you think of sending in your resignation letter? Worrying you reach office. The boss calls you, he apologises, and it was his mistake!
Not only should we not worry about little things, but we should also not worry about seemingly big things. The things that seem today very big and essential will seem trifle tomorrow. In your student life, you must have feared for days about the wrong answer you gave, even though you knew the correct answer, to an objective type of question carrying just half a mark. How much are you worried about a dress on a special occasion, meeting a boy or girl whom you fancied, or the change of residence of a friend’s family? Do these matter a bit today? Why worry about spilt milk, broken glass, or a missed bus?
Of course, nobody worries for the sake of worrying. Worry comes into mind and then never leaves. But many people never worry. It seems that worrying is a sort of bad habit. Like all bad habits, the pattern of worrying is also tricky to get rid of. So, in the first instance, never make worrying a practice. Secondly, try to divert your mind. Think of positive things. Get busy with some physical activity. Keep yourself away from the habitually worrying type who always sees an item’s negative side.
Instead of useless worrying, one should take positive action.
I hope you enjoyed that post.
A positive mindset is so important.
It’s so hard to not let my mind wander in these current times. It’s really refreshing to read something positive! When I look back there’s so much I worried about which I didn’t need to, sometimes it’s good to be reminded of that. Thanks for an uplifting post.
I find it fascinating how our brain works like this! We think something like 50,000-70,000 thoughts a day and 95% of them are worrisome or negative. How crazy is that! But also amazing that we can train our brain to think more positively.
Learning how to let go of worry has helped me to live a healthier life.
Thank you! It’s so easy to get bogged down with worries right now. I’ve tried not to think too much about the future right now because when I do, it’s so stressful. I’ve never truly lived in the moment as much as right now!
You’re so right. Worrying about something you have no control over leads me to nothing but anxiety. I find that meditation helps me so much when I have those obsessive thoughts!
Thanks for sharing this. It’s definitely an uplifting thought. Worrying and chronic stress really do suck the joy out of life and lead to health problems. Most of us could really spend more time and energy living in the present and concentrating on things that we can actually affect.
I do worry a lot about things. I try to remind myself that it does no good to worry so much! It really is not good for your health.
You are so right! Happiness is up to us. I always say happiness is a choice!
This is so encouraging; I know that it really helps me to think more clearly once I can clear the worry from my mind.
Worry really is a silent killer. It literally dries the bones – causes aches and pains. Great post
I really needed to hear this! I worry way too much!
I really live by this. Worrying brings unnecessary stresses into life. Great article!
Great article! I totally agree with everything you said!
