7 Strategies to Stop Worrying about Things You Can't Control — there’s a Time and a Place for Each of Them

There is one brutal truth in life which people sometimes refuse to accept, and it is that we cannot control a lot of the things which occur in our lives.

Some of those people who resist that truth become control freaks. They micromanage, refuse to delegate tasks, as well as try to force other people to change. They also think that if they can gain enough control over other people and the situations they find themselves, they can prevent some bad things from happening.

However, others know that they cannot prevent bad things from occurring, but they just worry about them anyway. They actually bother about everything from natural disasters to some deadly diseases. Their worries keep them occupied, but ultimately, they also waste their time, as well as their energy because worrying does not do any good.

So, if you waste a lot of your precious time worrying about things which you cannot control, here you can read the seven tips which can help you.

1. You can control the way you respond.

Sure, you cannot control everything that happens to you, but you can control the way you respond to those things. And, the greatest power is hidden in your response. Yes, most of your stress comes directly from the way you think and respond, and not from the way life is. You should adjust your attitude, and all that extra stress will be gone.

2. Don’t worry about whether there will be some problems.

You are not supposed to worry about whether there are going to be some problems. There will be plenty of them of course, and you are going to work your way through every one of them for sure.

3. Imagine the best.

If you worry too much about what may be in the future and wonder too long about what might have been in the past, you are going to ignore and completely miss what is now. You should realize that worrying is a misuse of your incredible creative energy. So, instead of imagining the worst, you should imagine the best and how you can bring about it.

4. Today is a choice.

Today is a choice, so choose grace over impatience, beauty over negativity, as well as presence over panic.

5. There is nothing about your present situation.

There is definitely nothing about your present situation – even the aspects which you cannot control – which prevents you from making progress, slowly, step by step.

6. Make things happen.

You are alive and breathing, so you should like that. Let go of what is wrong for you and grab hold of what is right. You should make things happen and then let things happen. You should learn, accept, explore, create, as well as experience every single day, one tiny step at a time.

7. Keep being mindful.

You should keep being mindful. Keep breathing deeply, as things will ultimately turn out best for people that make the best out of the way things turn out.
