Worry is a feeling that pre-occupies the mind meaning that we are focusing on a time that does not exist. We may be feeling worried about something that has happened in the past or may happen in the future, therefore worry only takes our present time away.
Negative thoughts that cause feelings of worry usually start with: I am not good, I don’t have, I can’t, I don’t know and what if. Thoughts like these push us down discouraging our further steps on the way to our dreams or goals. To adopt the ‘I will not worry principle’ we can ignore negative thoughts and keep occupied in our present tasks even if we are working in what seems a difficult goal. One step at a time is ok, we will get there eventually!
A good exercise to avoid feeling worry is to treat worry as a client and set up an appointment to worry. We can schedule 5 – 10 minutes at a specific time during our precious day and when that time comes we can sit down and worry. →
This exercise may help us find out solutions to our fear or help us realize that worry only takes time from our daily activities. In time we can ditch worry and replace it with meditation.
By remembering this principle we take care of things that are priority at the moment in order to manifest the outcomes that we want to achieve in life. When we release worry, our day becomes peaceful and productive. Don’t worry, be happy and treasure the present moment.
