10 Ways Of A Worry Free Life

A famous psychologist asserts that "fear is the most disintegrating enemy of human personality, "and a prominent physician declares that "worry is the most subtle and destructive of all human diseases." Another physician tells us that thousands of people are ill because of "dammed-up anxiety." These sufferers have been unable to expel their anxieties which have turned inward on the personality, causing many forms of ill-health. The destructive quality of worry is indicated by the fact that the word itself is derived from an old Anglo-Saxon word meaning "to choke." If someone were to put his fingers around your throat and press hard, cutting off the flow of vital power, it would be a dramatic demonstration of what you do to yourself by long-held and habitual worry.

And the first step to take in breaking it is simply to believe that you can. And here, then, is a practical procedure which will help to eliminate excessive worry form your experience.

Practice emptying the mind daily. This should be done preferably before going to bed at night to avoid the retention of worries while you sleep. During sleep, thoughts tend to sink more deeply into the subconscious The last five minutes before going to sleep are especially important. In that brief period the mind is most receptive to suggestion. It tends to absorb the last ideas that you are concentrating on in waking consciousness.

This process of mind drainage is important in overcoming worry, for fear thoughts, unless drained off, can clog the mind and pinch off the flow of mental and spiritual power. Here's a ten-point worry-breaking formula designed to help you go to work. NOW-break the worry habit!

1. Say to yourself, "Worry is just a very bad mental habit. And I can change any habit."

2. You become a worrier by practicing worry. You can become free of worry by practicing the opposite and stronger habit of faith. With all the strength and perseverance you can command, start practicing faith.

3. How do you practice faith? First thing every morning before you arise say out loud, "I believe," three times.

4. Start a gratitude journal and log evidences of times when faith has paid off.

5. Watch your self-talk. Practice saying something positive concerning everything about which you've been talking negatively. Talk positively. For example, don't say, "This is going to be a terrible day." Instead, affirm, "This is going to be a glorious day." Don't say, "I'll never be able to do that." Instead, affirm, "I will do that."

6. Never participate in a worry conversation. Shoot an injection of faith into all your conversations. A group of people talking pessimistically can infect every person in the group with negativity. But by talking things up rather than down you can drive off that depressing atmosphere and make everyone feel hopeful and happy.

7. One reason you are a worrier is that your mind is literally overcome with apprehensive thoughts, defeat thoughts, gloomy thoughts. Clear your mind.

8. Create friendships with hopeful people. Surround yourself with friends who think positive, faith-producing thoughts and who contribute to a creative atmosphere. This will keep you stimulated with positive attitudes.

9. See how many people you can help to cure their worry habit. In helping another to overcome worry you get greater power over it within yourself.

10. Every day of your life conceive of yourself as living positively happy.
