How to stop the worry-go-round
We are always looking for ways to make sure we stay healthy.
We look at the medical fraternity and pharmaceutical companies hoping that they will provide a miracle cure for all our troubles or a magic pill to instantly restore our vitality, longevity, virility and looks.
People are sick and tired of being sick and tired. You can hear this in the way they speak.
But what if we could play a major role in our own wellness, and not have to rely on sources outside of ourselves?
Many illnesses are unconsciously self-inflicted.
Now, do not get me wrong! These diseases are very real, with very real and often severe and debilitating symptoms. All of it caused by worry and fear.
Yes! We worry about everything . . . the past . . . the present . . . and the future. It causes us sleepless nights, and then we worry because we cannot sleep. If we don’t sleep well, we suffer from fatigue and our nerves wear thin. A wise man once said: ”Nervous troubles are caused not by deterioration of the nerves but by emotions of futility, frustration, anxiety, worry, fear, defeat and depression.”
There are ways to counteract the devastating effects of worry and fear. The answer lies in how we speak and in how we think.
