Let me start off this post by saying that I don’t intend to preach on the futility of worrying, as I have met very FEW people who worry MORE than me. I am not sure if I have always been this way but certainly have been a major worry-wart after I had my son. I worry constantly about him. Is he eating right? Is he sleeping enough? Why does he turn all my spatulas into swords and attack me? You get the picture.
Having said that, I am aware about the pointless nature of most of my worries. But simply knowing that, doesn’t help. It is mostly an involuntary part of my nature, and I can’t just wish it away. However, I was able to find an effective antidote for it. This clearly isn’t a universal antidote, although it works for me and could possibly work for you.
1. Law of Attraction – I read about this in a book called as The Secret. The law of attraction states that our current thoughts create our future reality . This scares me so much that I rush to change the channel on my mental television.
2. Writing a Gratitude Journal – I have recently discovered the benefits of writing a gratitude journal. It instantly alters my frame of mind and makes me focus on the many blessings that are a part of my reality instead of the mostly imaginary situations that I worry about.
I would love to hear from you. What are your thoughts on this? Do you have a special antidote for your worries?
