Don’t Let Yourself Be Worried And Get Your Peace Of Mind Back

Don’t Let Yourself Be Worried And Get Your Peace Of Mind Back: Worry Works?

An old co-worker had this quotation on his office wall: “I know worry works because nothing I worry about ever happens.”

I think I must believe that, because I used to worry a lot — and about the most insignificant things. I used to worry about the big things, of course, like health, relationships, and finances. But I was also liable to fret about anything and everything that finds its way into my consciousness.

Because I spent so much time on worry, I’ve decided to embrace it with a personal research project.

Don’t Let Yourself Be Worried And Get Your Peace Of Mind Back: 4 Steps To Your Peace Of Mind

Here are four steps that I have been exploring that help me gain my peace of mind and started worrying less:

Don’t Let Yourself Be Worried And Get Your Peace Of Mind Back Step #1 – Acknowledge When You Are Worrying

I practice catching myself at it. “Hey, I’m worrying again.” During a morning walk, I caught myself worrying 10 times during one lap! I’m not kidding. On rare days when I didn’t have anything to worry about, I find something. What I’ve learned is that worry is a mental habit. I can change habits; I’ve done it before. There’s hope.

Don’t Let Yourself Be Worried And Get Your Peace Of Mind Back Step #2 – Stop It

My second step is to practice presence. By this I mean stopping my thoughts. In my workshops, I ring a bell to help participants practice centering. The quieter we are, the longer we hear the bell. There’s a lovely moment when we all listen . . . until the ring is barely audible . . . then just a memory. I relish that moment of quiet before my thoughts re-engage. There is no future or past, just Now. No worrying thoughts — no thoughts at all. It’s a peaceful place, which is why I stretch the moment. I want to strengthen the connection to something greater than my worries.

Don’t Let Yourself Be Worried And Get Your Peace Of Mind Back Step #3 – Make A Decision

Do one of three things: decide to address the issue right then; if you can’t do anything about it at the moment, give yourself a time to address it later; or decide that it is not important and let it go. In other words, act on it, file it or throw it away.

Don’t Let Yourself Be Worried And Get Your Peace Of Mind Back Step #4 – Find An Outlet

Finally, one of the favorite worry stoppers is to sing. Connect with your self, your creativity, and the place where everything really is okay.

Awareness and acknowledgment are the keys to changing our habits. Morihei Ueshiba, who founded aikido and spoke of it as the Art of Peace, said we must “always practice the Art of Peace in a vibrant and joyful manner.” Perhaps my research project on worry will help people to lighten up, smile, and live each day in such a way.

Are you worrying? Stop your thoughts for a moment. Listen to the sounds around you, pay attention, and be present to this key moment. And smile . . . for no reason. You may find that’s the best reason of all.
