It seems like there’s always plenty to worry about, isn’t there?  Whether it’s friends or family issues, illness, money, or world news, something always pops up with the potential to create worry.

I’ve never thought of myself as a worrier.  And yet, as I’ve had to face tough times and decisions in my life, I found myself worrying.  I read that worry is letting our minds dwell on difficulty or troubles.

As a positive person, I knew I didn’t want to live in that negative place.  I had to figure out what to do to keep from it.

So, how can you deal with worry in your life? Here are some things that will help:

  • Be intentional about changing negative worry to positive thoughts. When negative thoughts or worry start to creep, visualize kicking them out of your mind and focus on something positive.
  • Most of your worries have a solution. You need to find out more about it and what you can do to make the situation better. Once you understand more about your case, you can make a plan to take action. That gets you into action and out of worry.
  • Go to your happy place.  Whether that is time with your Bible or and afternoon matinee, shift your mental channels.

Zig Ziglar taught me many years ago, that worry is a waste of time because most of what we worry about never happen. And the results of our fears are entirely out of our control. So it is a waste of time and energy, isn’t it?
