Everyone worries about things; it is entirely normal to worry. However, if these feelings start to interfere with your everyday life, worry might be a problem. Typically, when we find ourselves worrying about something or someone, many different emotions are tangled together. Take the time to analyze your feelings and try to distinguish all the different feelings you are experiencing. The following three suggestions can help you overcome persistent worrying.


  1. Accept What You Cannot Control


We cannot control everything in our lives. Control is a significant player in many people’s mental health — we like to feel in control. When we control situations and relationships, we can steer them exactly how we want and create the outcomes that we desire. You will find that you worry a lot less when you simply accept that you cannot control everything


  1. Create Habits and Routines


For some individuals, developing routines and habits can help create a sense of calm and control in their lives. Routines may not be suitable for every situation, so work with a mental health professional to determine the healthiest option for you. Routines can help us start our day productively and end our day with calm thoughts.  


  1. Identify When the Worry Is Unproductive


When a situation is out of your hands, and there is nothing you can do to change it, then work on getting your thoughts onto something else. Rumination occurs when our thoughts circle around and around. Rumination can make us anxious and worried; not only is the rumination unproductive, but excessive worrying can make us unproductive as well. 


Everyone worries; it is perfectly normal to worry about different situations, but incessant worrying can consume our lives if we let it. If feelings of worry start to consume and disrupt your daily life, then it may be time to analyze and work on these feelings. Try to find ways to relax and step outside of the situation or away from the person causing your worry. Sometimes it can even be challenging to understand what we are feeling anxious or worried over. Often it is many things all tangled together. Here at The Guest House, we understand how complex mental health and addiction can be. Everyone is on their own path, and we are ready to help.
