Declutter Your Mind: How to Stop Worrying, Relieve Anxiety, and Eliminate Negative Thinking

How to Stop Worrying

Stop for a minute and pay attention to your thoughts.

Seriously, stop reading this, close your eyes, and "watch" your thoughts. Then come back here.

Did you noticed how your mind is constantly producing thoughts? There's not much, if any, white space between the constant stream of random and intentional thoughts.

Some of those thoughts are benign and neutral. But far too many are negative and stressful.

This constant mental chatter is the source of much of our worry, anxiety, overwhelm, and unhappiness. The more you allow your mind free reign to linger in negativity, the more entrapped you feel by your looping thoughts.

These thoughts foster the debilitating feelings of stress, worry, anger and self-doubt. It's a vicious cycle that feels out of your control.

The more you think, the worse you feel, and the worse you feel, the more you think about the reasons you feel bad. How do you stop the thoughts and reclaim your joy and peace of mind?

Even neutral or productive thoughts can take a toll on us. We have so much input and stimulation from our daily lives that our brains are on constant overdrive. We can't tune out and unplug. Our minds can't be a peace.

When you live with constant "mental clutter," your quality of life is compromised. It's no wonder that so many people turn to medication, alcohol, and other mind-numbing substances and behaviors in order to escape.

But you don't have to look outside of yourself to find relief from your mental clutter. You are not a victim of your thoughts or a prisoner to them. There are numerous practical mindsets and habits you can adopt to take control of your thoughts, learn to detach from them, and lessen the grip they have over your emotional well-being.

There are also many habits you can adopt to design your life in a way that fosters more peace of mind and less negativity, allowing you to focus your time and attention on what's most important and valuable to YOU.

In our latest book, my co-author Steve Scott and I, show you exactly how to do just that. It's called, Declutter Your Mind: How to Stop Worrying, Relieve Anxiety, and Eliminate Negative Thinking.

As part of Amazon's Kindle Unlimited program, the book is on sale for the introductory price of just $0.99 for a few days. (more…)
