See humans are vulnerable creatures. And assuming things for no reason is normal for us. Most of us are either stuck in past or worried about the future. We often have “what if” in mind. That’s a natural tendency.

But there are so many other reasons which can trigger this tendency on you. Think once about the reasons.

What you should do when you’re anxious about life?

The first and very important thing you need to do is

“To live in the moment”

Don’t be stuck in past and don’t create an imaginary future. Just focus on the present. Just think you’re here at this moment and here are some ways to be in the present moment check out this.

I understand it is easy saying than doing but we don’t have any option left. We need to work on ourselves if we want to get out of this. Keep this thing in your mind.

Keep a reality check on your thoughts

When you’re thinking something and making different scenarios in your mind. Remember to ask yourself. Is it even possible and real what I’m thinking or it’s just the creation of my mind? Just analyze if anxiety is making you create such thoughts and scenarios. Keep a constant reality check. Every time you think something which makes you feel anxious, Remind yourself that if I’m thinking something relevant or not.

Use a different PERSPECTIVE

Your Perceptions are important. Whenever you’re thinking about something which is making you get anxious about your life, trick your brain. First of all, try to be at present moment. Then keep a check on your thoughts. Then have a different Perspective about that thought. Instead of thinking negatively try to perceive that situation positively.

It’s kind of – If you’re thinking “Why me” instead of start thinking “It’s me because I’m strong enough and capable to deal with the situation.” You might read at many places “Attitude Matters” so this is what you need. Everyone is dealing with different situations and different hardships. So if they can, I can too. Just assure yourself “I can”. Nothing is constant. Everything is temporary even your situations will not be the same always.

So instead of panicking try to perceive situations differently.

Connect with yourself.

Try to engage with your real-life more rather than thoughts created by you. Develop a relationship with yourself. Seek peace inside what you’re seeking outside it’s within yourself. Spend time with yourself. Do things that make you happy. Relax your mind and body. Take a break once in a while.

Sometimes it’s just the regular routine that makes you get anxious about life for no reason. Because you’re stuck at one place doing the repetitive things.  So better take a break and start afresh.
