How to Stop Constant Worrying About the Future
But chronic and all-consuming worry can be troublesome and interfere with our ability to function freely and calmly in our daily lives. More importantly, problem worry can make recovery from panic disorder or agoraphobia more difficult. Worry itself serves no purpose unless it spurs a plan of action. If your mind has been taken over by chronic worry, your risk assessment skills may be distorted. Looking at your situation realistically may help you reduce your worry. Some people find it helpful to schedule 30 minutes each day just to worry.
I spent many years of my life trying to control different people and situations and worrying about the future. Like many people, I was afraid to be happy since I could lose it one day, and I was constantly letting my worries ruin my joy. I wish I would be able to surrender life completely, but I am not there yet. Today I have stopped defining myself as a control freak. Spending my time worrying is very frustrating, and drains both my time and my energy. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery.
Focusing on the future can be helpful when it comes to taking control of your own productivity and achieving your goals, but there's a downside we don't often acknowledge. As many of us know, focusing on the future can sometimes turn into worrying about the future. While it's important to be curious about the future, it's equally important to stop obsessing about the future once it becomes unproductive or detrimental to what you're doing right now. When you constantly worry about the future, you don't have time to live in the present. This prevents you from thinking clearly and being fully invested in what you're doing right now. This is something you need to work on ASAP.
