Stop worrying about things you can't control

Distract yourself to quit worrying. "If you are too focused on worrying, doing something engaging that requires your focus and attention that has nothing to do with worrying can help you deflect.

"It can be daunting at first, but once you are able to open up and talk to others, whether that's friends, partners, or a professional, it can be very rewarding."

If you worry a lot, particularly about matters beyond your control, exercise may help. Working exercise increases endorphins and distracts you from your thoughts. 

Caffeine, a stimulant, may boost your anxiety, caffeine raises our heart rate, body temperature, and breathing rate, which are anxiety signals.


You know how stress and worry affect sleep if you're often anxious. Sleep deprivation worsens these sensations, creating a vicious cycle. 

Meditation is another common stress-management technique. It won't solve anything, but it may help you remain in the now and avoid worrying about the future. 

Instead of fretting about things beyond your control, do something helpful and pleasant. That'll teach you to quit worrying. 

"Try different relaxation techniques,". "When you're worried, paced deep breathing or muscle relaxation can lower your physical arousal and calm your mind."

Journaling is another popular mindfulness method that helps you write down your problems.

While we may wish our anxieties gone, it's okay to acknowledge them and put them in a box.
