How can I stop worrying?

by Dr. Kathleen Hall

Maya, Worry is negative guided imagery. When we allow our minds to imagine what “could” happen, it is nothing more than negative guided imagery. Our worries are not real, but worrying will rob you of your life. The fact is most of your worries will never happen, and worrying will only keep you living in a state of fear and uncertainty. Worry creates incredible stress chemicals and will make you sick. Wouldn’t you rather live in a state of confidence and happiness? Every time you worry, stop immediately and say a one-to-five word affirmation to stop this nasty habit. Worry is nothing but a bad habit that does nothing good for your life. When I began to worry, I smile and say, “I am so grateful for my life.” Gratitude is an antidote to worry.
