What to do to overcome the tendency to worry?
Learning how to overcome worries requires more than a short article. There are various ways to overcome worry, such as concentration exercises, meditation, detachment, inner peace and also positive thinking. These methods usually require time and effort, and with persistence they bring real results.
Most people have no time and patience, and therefore look for methods that promise fast results, without effort, and the market is now full of them. I have no experience with these fast methods, so I don’t know if they work or don’t work. I prefer personal development methods that require inner work and effort, because they have lasting effects, and make you a conscious being, with more control over what goes into your subconscious mind.
Concentration exercises, meditation and detachment can help you overcome worry, but they can also lead to inner peace, inner strength, mental mastery and spiritual awakening.
