We often worry about something. We think about the near future – if we’ll make it to work or if the bus will come and whether or not it will rain, because we don’t have an umbrella. We also worry about the future, if our children will get into good schools, what will happen with our job in a few years.
There’s always something to think and ponder about, creating scenarios of it in our minds and worrying what we’ll do if… However, excessive thoughts make us lose the day at hand. Plans for the future are destroying today’s happiness. Don’t give up! Learn five simple ways how not to let your own thoughts torment you.
1. Focus on what positive things are happening right now.
2. Find a nice getaway from those negative thoughts – a beautiful memory or your plans for a future vacation.
