Have you ever felt so pent up and anxious that you couldn’t get simple tasks accomplished? One reason for this dilemma is that whenever you’re worried or nervous, you use up precious stores of emotional energy.
When this happens, you have no energy left to sustain your daily existence. You feel zapped. And you’ll continue to feel that way until you can alleviate some of your anxiety.
Lack of energy is just part of the negative impact that anxiety has on your life. Anxiety seriously impedes both your mental and physical health. Learning to control anxiety is one of the best things you can do for your wellbeing.
Following this 7-step process will put you back in charge:
Start a Worry List. Get a spiral notebook specifically for your Worry List. When you start to feel anxious about something, write it down on your list. Doing so will allow you to calm your chaotic thoughts and confidently move on with your day.
Establish a time to worry each day. As your worries sneak into your thoughts throughout the day, “gather them up” by jotting down those concerns onto your Worry List. Then, decide on a specific time you’ll worry each day.
Abruptly stop any worry that occurs spontaneously during the day. When you start to worry throughout the day, say to yourself, “No, I’m not going to worry about that right now. I’ll do it during Worry Time.”
Play the devil’s advocate. Question your anxiety.
Ask yourself, “Does this issue have a solution?” If you can quickly determine whether the challenge at hand is solvable, you can then confidently proceed to put a solution into place to prevent future worry about that issue.
Acknowledge that some worries are not within your power to solve. Write these difficulties on a piece of paper, place them in a balloon, and float them up into the sky.
In essence, tell yourself you must say “good-bye” to these particular worries because they don’t really belong to you and you have no control over them.
When you practice these steps, you’ll be able to manage your anxiety better each day. Plus, you’ll enjoy more emotional energy to spend living the good life you deserve.
