Are you stressed and anxious?
Stress is a big cause of our health problems. This can lead to numerous concerns such as digestive issues, sleep difficulties, irritability, headaches, high blood pressure, diabetes, depression and stroke. It can affect your immune system where you are frequently ill and increase your chances of ageing prematurely.
What you can do is find your own worry gauge… ‘Are you likely to panic because of… Or do you have the ability to stop this happening?’
Learn how to take back control in difficult moments
Perhaps you have received advice that some situations are worth worrying about. What you need to distinguish is if your panic is natural and a motivator to change a situation. Or if it is useless fretting that only makes you despair to no end. An everyday example is being afraid of catching a harmful bug or the flu. Rather than look at health statistics, take action and to build your immune system and practice good infection control and hand hygiene.
Learn how to deflate panic
Have you been in situations where the way you reacted was both preventable and highly unlikely to cause apprehension? Medical research tells us different things all the time. There are numerous health warnings. For example, we should read the labels on packaged foods. If you think drinking too much caffeine is bad for you, reduce your intake. There is harmful pollution all around us, but that doesn’t mean we stop breathing.
Learn how to bury your head in the sand
When you learn about risk you realise that some dangers can be mitigated. At times it isn’t worth worrying about what could happen. Even when a situation looks bleak. Sometimes seeing a bad weather forecast and thinking the worst doesn’t mean a cyclone, flood or tornado is going to hit you. There is no point worrying about whether it will or if it won’t because in such situations you may not avoid it when it did.
Learn how to act wisely
In situations set out to note what happened. How did you feel at the time? What went through your mind or disturbed you? Then stop, take a deep breath. Is this a fact or an opinion? What are you seeing or not seeing? What are you responding to? What’s the bigger picture? What would I think about a friend in this situation? Start to think about a kind and helpful way to think about you and your situation. What can I do differently? What would be more effective? View the bright side to every pessimist situation. Begin to realise that although situations might not be all right, worrying about them won’t help change them.
