Why worrying makes sense

We humans have the ability to mentally look to the future.

And nothing else to worry about.

Because when you are worried about something, you have pictures of a future event in your head or you have other thoughts about it.

You're anticipating something that hasn't happened (and probably never will).

And what should make sense about it now?

We have the ability to plan the future.

We can take out life insurance so that we will definitely get money later.

We can book airline tickets that we won't need for three months.

We can pack a bag to take with us what we think we will need.

And we can do things that we believe will be useful to us in the future.

We take precautions.

Animals do this instinctively. For example, squirrels hoard nuts for the winter without worrying about how much they need, when to start and when to stop, etc.

You just do it.

Because humans have the ability to plan precisely, this can of course also go in the wrong direction.

Namely when he thinks too many things that harm him. When he's worried too much.

So, on the one hand, it's good to plan your future and think about certain things. And on the other hand, it is harmful if you only look to the future with worry.

How exactly do you worry?

As already mentioned: The moment you are worried about something, you paint a picture of something that did not happen or you have other thoughts (e.g. you are talking to yourself) about it.

It's all just in your head.

With some it goes so far that it has already become automatic. This means that these people have worried thoughts all day long and no longer notice them.

You run through your mind as if on autopilot.

So if you are also prone to worry, then one thing is very important:

At the moment when the worries are very strong, many feel that there is nothing they can do about it. The thoughts and the pain associated with them are just so present that one lacks the power to get them away.

But that is far from it!

Sometimes it doesn't work right away. But if you write off right from the start that it is in your power to change how you feel, then it becomes even more difficult to do so.

So: You have the power to let go of your worries!

Yes, sometimes it takes a little practice and time, but then you can also manage to lead a more relaxed and serene life.

Because be aware of one thing: whether you are worried all the time or have good thoughts, many events happen anyway without you having any influence on them! It doesn't matter how you thought about it before.

Well, then it makes perfect sense to have good thoughts and to feel good about them.

How to get rid of your worries

1. Interrupt your thoughts and change them

The next time you are worried and cannot find peace, make a conscious decision to let go of those thoughts.

And then start thinking about things that are useful to you.

If you find it difficult to stop this negative thinking, do something that will immediately distract you. Jump wildly, read something quickly, do something to distract yourself.

And then look again at exactly what you are worried about.

But different this time.

This time you watch the event the way you would like it to be.

For example:

If your child is out and about at night and you are afraid that something will happen to them:

Imagine how it will arrive back home safe and sound. How fun and happy it is outside.

Make pictures in your head of how you would like it to be. Imagine your child lying in bed asleep, etc.

Picture it exactly how it is good!

This technique can take some practice. Sometimes the worrying thoughts come back. Then you have to keep building a strong positive image for yourself.

2. The "worst case scenario"

Sometimes it just doesn't work: that we interrupt our worries and only see the beautiful.

Then it can make sense to use this technique.

The point here is to mentally look at the worst outcome of a situation and then determine that it is not that bad after all. So you take the wind out of your sails for your worries.

But be careful: only use this technique for the right moments. When you're on a plane and you're scared of a crash, it doesn't make much sense to look at the worst result.

This technique is intended for situations like this:

You are not in an optimal position financially and you are worried about your future. These worries are very overwhelming and they keep coming back.

Then take a good look at what really bad can happen!

The worst part is that you don't have a job and you get Hart IV.

No, that is not necessarily desirable, but if you look at it in your own time, you will find that it is not really bad.

Wherever we live, you will always have a roof over your head and a full refrigerator. No matter what happens!

After you have looked at this “worst case”, think again about how you want it to be.

Take a look at how you can earn more money instead of less in the future. Color in pictures how the salary ends up in the account every month, etc.

Determine your thoughts yourself!

3. Do exercises to become more relaxed overall

When your body is constantly under tension, it also makes it easier for it to worry.

You will notice (or already know it): if you relax yourself and your body, then you will feel better.

Do something regularly that is good for you!

Go to massage, yoga, sauna, meditate daily, etc.

Learn to live a more relaxed life overall.

4. Build your confidence

Where there is trust, there is no fear.

When you have enough trust in yourself and the world, you have less worries. Build your self-confidence and let go of your worries.

You can find many exercises and techniques for this on this homepage. If you want to work on it every day, check out my free course.


Worrying can be very stressful. If you tend to do so, first realize that you yourself have the power to change that.

You make these worrying thoughts yourself and you have the power to make other thoughts as well.

Of course, it may take some time and practice to make this transition from negative to positive thoughts, but if you don't do anything, nothing will happen.

Use the techniques that you have learned here consistently and you will notice a significant change!
