How To Train Your Brain To Stop Worrying ! by lovelylad: 6:11pm On Apr 14, 2018
Worrying is an unnecessary evil when it comes to
your mental health. Some consider it simply a bad
habit that can be unlearned with practice. Some think
that worrying may serve a purpose for the brain by
helping us to learn from past experiences and prepare
for new ones. Whether good or bad, worrying occupies our brain by focusing on an uncertain future
that we can’t control.

It is said that depression is focusing on past events
that you wish you could change, and that worrying is
focusing on future events that you have no control
over. It could also be said about worrying that you
only think you have no control over the future when
you can actually choose to take action to help prepare for whatever it is you are worried about. In this
article, we will look at active ways that you can help
train your brain to stop worrying.

1. STOP YOUR BRAIN FROM WORRYING BY
WRITING IT DOWN

When you are training your brain to stop worrying,
this one technique is said to be the most valuable. If
your brain is keeping you up at night by thinking about
something, put it down on paper or electronic format.
Doing so lets your brain breathe a mental sigh of relief
by no longer having to spend energy trying to remember these details. If you’re worrying about
what to serve for a gathering of friends, write down
‘What to serve?’

Writing it down also is a way for you to put your brain
on notice and tell your brain ‘This is important
enough to write down.’ Your brain has now been
alerted to put resources toward solving this problem
rather than being worried or having to remember the
important thing to worry about.
2. MEDITATE FOR A WORRY FREE BRAIN
Meditation can help train your brain to stop worrying.
Researchers in the journal Psychosomatic Medicine
studied the effects of meditation and found that
meditation is particularly good for reducing cognitive
anxiety, or worrying. Although some people believe
that they do not have time to meditate, meditation is as easy as choosing to close your eyes right now for
30 seconds or longer. The act of choosing to tune out
other sources of stress is an active step to train your
brain to stop worrying.

A few moments where you consciously choose to
avoid any non-natural noise in your life will allow you
to get centered around what is most important to you,
now and in the future. Worrisome thoughts may come
to you while you meditate, and this is normal. Those
who have mastered the art of brain training to stop worrying recommend observing worrisome thoughts
as they enter the mind and simply watching them
pass like clouds on a breezy day.

3. EXERCISE TO TRAIN YOUR BODY AND YOUR
BRAIN TO STOP WORRYING

Worry is how your brain learns to survive by deciding
to activate the fight or flight system. If a cougar jumps
out at you, you instantly feel a rush of adrenaline, and
this fear response is the same thing that is happening
to your body when you worry, just at a much lower
level over a longer period of time.
The same study in the journal Psychosomatic Medicine
found that exercise, on the other hand, is good for
when your body feels the symptoms of anxiety, like
jitteriness. If your body feels less of the physical
symptoms of stress, your mind will interpret that
there must be less to worry about because the body is not in a state of heightened arousal.
Exercise seems to give the body a secondary reason
for the rapid heart rate and perspiration that we may
feel on a small level when we worry. Exercise can
help lower blood pressure, which is another physical
symptom of stress in the body. If you can identify that
you are worrying, go for a 5-10 minute walk, outside if possible. Appreciate the sights and sounds of nature
while focusing on the motion of your limbs and the
breaths that you take.

There's this practice I've found very effective ie holding your breath

When you hold your breath, everything about you seems to come to a standstill and you feel your body being lifted while anticipating the next rush of air.
Even when I experience an embarrassing erection, all I do is hold my breath and my body refocus
