I keep worrying about negative stuff happening to me lately. Anyone here having the same issue? How do I stop myself from worrying so much?

It would be lovely if we could all live worry-free lives. Life is inundated with problems and the worries that go with them are sadly a part of it. One thing is to worry a tad and another(bad)thing is to let worries, fears, and anxieties dominate our thinking.  It does no one any good to worry about what hadn’t happened and probably have zero chance of happening. It will only add to the emotional load of today.

These are some of the most effective coping techniques that have helped me whenever I got hung up on certain worries or imaging the worst-case scenarios

I take care of my physical by exercising constantly, getting adequate rest and nourishment.

I found out that getting things, (no matter how unpleasant or scratchy) done sooner rather later means I have fewer things to worry about.

I focus on the present and its problems

 I listen to elevating gospel songs day in day out

I surround myself with positive-minded people

I write down my short achievable goals-this gives me something positive to focus on, looking ahead to better times with a huge smile on my face.

If you feel constantly weigh down by constant worry, don’t suffer in silence. Share your thoughts and feelings with people, friends, family, doctor, or a coach, you trust.

As a practicing stoic, worrying is one of the feelings or situations that are within your control. You may not be in control of the situation that causes the worry, for example, you are not in control of death or your health. But how it makes you feel is within your control. It is you who choose to worry or not to worry. So, in order to stop worrying, you should control what you allow to bother you.

You cannot learn to stop worrying, but you can learn to worry about the right things. There are certain situations where worrying is not only natural but also necessary. It is important to pick the things to worry about. If it isn't under your control, then no point worrying. If it is under your control, then make a change and fix the problem.
