Any form of mental tension has an adverse effect on our physical and mental health. The more the agitation inside, the less we think, perceives, and acts. So, let’s look at some ways to deal with this disruptive state.
- Beyond the words, lives love: Words are powerful but not as much as love. When not required, it is better to be silent than talk unnecessarily. Our consciousness is stress-free when there is less noise in our minds; however, this tenuous condition is lost with excessive talking. When we communicate in silence, we communicate with our hearts, we communicate with love. Worry becomes zero.
- Pranayama and Meditation: Practice this ancient yogic art. Bhastrika Pranayama helps get rid of worries. Meditation has rich benefits for settling our calm and assembling our thoughts. Now that I practice it regularly, I know how Heartfulness meditation so capably takes care of my physical and mental well-being.
- Make someone listen to you: Be it a family member or a trusted friend, share what is bothering you so much and get a better understanding of your dilemma. Expressing your vulnerability may lead you to mental peace, after all, a problem shared is a problem halved.
- Increase your practice of Heartfulness Relaxation & Cleaning: Make this a regular part of your routine and notice the difference as it paves the path of consciousness and gets rid of negative thinking patterns. We get reality checks, different perspectives, and broader vision to ideas, and alternative solutions.
- Write a journal: If nothing from the above works for you and you still feel isolated, take a diary and write your worries, emotions, sentiments, and inner thoughts. We may not express ourselves openly in front of others but with writing, expressing becomes very easy. Collect all your worries and thoughts, and take time out each day to vent through words.
Worry can become a chronic problem if allowed to go unchecked. While we cannot eliminate it completely, we can reduce its effect to a great extent. Remember, worrying doesn’t do anything to us – it only adds toxins to our system. Life goes on regardless . . . so, why worry?
