If so, you will know how this can enhance anxiety and waste energy. People tell me that they are ‘a worrier’ but worrying is not who we are, it is not part of our identity. It is merely a habit! You can change that habit if you choose! When we worry we concentrate on the future ‘what if’s. Learning to focus your mind on the present – rather than the future will help you manage this unnecessary behavior.
One simple way that you can practice this is by bringing all your attention fully to one thing e.g. a reflection, a mark on the wall or the floor or the way an item like a pen feels in your hand. When you find yourself worrying, try this to help focus your mind on NOW and train your mind to be present.
