Whilst this may seem fairly obvious, trying to acknowledge whats causing you to stress out can actually be fairly stressful itself, but once you’ve gotten to the root of whats causing the problem for you, you’ll be able to face it head on and tackle the issue.

This is something I really struggle to do if I’m honest with you. I am a self confessed over thinker and I almost can’t do anything without worrying about the impact it’s going to have, never mind how much I over think things that have already happened and worry about them. All this over thinking and ‘distance’ from what is happening ‘right now’ is doing nothing but bringing un-needed stress to your life. Yes, some things need to be thought about, but you don’t need to spend your time worrying about what you’re going to wear in two days time or what the person at the supermarket thought of you.

Don’t spend your time dwelling on the past, life is too short to stress over things that have happened that you now have no control over. Focus on what you’re doing now and what’s happening now that you have control over.. That’s what’s important.
