“Worrying is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it doesn’t get you anywhere”. -Van Wilder, as played by Ryan Reynolds
“You shouldn’t take life to seriously. You’ll never get out alive.” -Van Wilder, as played by Ryan Reynolds
“Nothing can Bring you Peace, but yourself” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
“My philosophy is that worrying means you suffer twice.” -Newt Scamander, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

 I’m the poster child for worrying. I overthink so much. My mind is racing all the time. More often than not, it wanders to worst case scenarios- “what if it doesn’t work?, it’s not worth it”, I can’t do things right”. This is something I am working on constantly.  I have become self aware that it has hurt me personally and professionally at times. Constant worrying can move to negativity and closed off thinking. Negativity never got anyone anywhere. In fact, most negative people end up with enemies or alone. It takes work to move away from this. But, it’s essential to improve your outlook on life.
Easier said than done right? I agree. But, worrying does not help situations at all. Worry wastes time and energy. It’s exhausting! If you’re like me, you want MORE energy, not less. In order to do that, you have to wire your mind and take action on what creates energy- positivity, solid nutrition, regular exercise, healthy sleep, and a strong support system. Also, eliminate any thoughts and behaviors that drain your energy- worrying, self-deprecation, hanging with the wrong people, laziness, lack of exercise, and an unbalanced diet. If it’s too much to make all these changes, choose one at a time. Focus on building habits in place of old ones. Once you master a new healthy habit, work to change another one. Sooner than later you will be on your way to an improved outlook on life. As Always, Eat, Move, and Improve!
