From small things like “I need to do the dishes” to large ones like “What am I doing with my life?” Worrying can creep into your brain and stay long past its welcome. It can be easy to get caught up stressing about the past, present, and future. But to quit worrying about everything, little and big, is no easy feat. And it takes a lot of work to be free from worry.

Worrying is a normal and even a healthy part of life. But if normal anxiety becomes excessive, it can negatively affect your health and personal life. According to WebMD.com, worrying can affect your sleep and appetite. Constantly worrying can also take a toll on your relationships and job performance.

Life often feels heavy, and sometimes it feels like there isn’t enough time in the day to accomplish everything that needs to be done. It is easy to worry about the future, stress over the present, or regret the past. Now is the time to take a step back and figure out why you worry and how to let some of it fall to the wayside. 

So, how do we stop worrying about everything?

Figure out what you are anxious about.

Feel your emotions, then release them.
