Anxiety: Imagine What Your Life Would Be Like Without It

Oct 11, 2007
Do you remember how it felt when you were a small child, walking through life without a care in the world? Your biggest worry was what to bring for show-and-tell, and you became giddy over things like candy and cartoons. Things seemed so simple, because you did not have all of that nervous energy that has built up over the years. And, it seemed just about perfect.

As adults, we have so many more responsibilities and pressures that sometimes seem overwhelming. But it is our reaction to these situations and elements of our lives that can make or break us. There is no need to walk around a bundle of nerves every day of your life, because some things can easily be worked out.

Without worry, you will be in much better health, and your appearance will certainly improve tenfold. Excessive anxiety causes premature wrinkling, can lead to early graying of the hair, and can have adverse effects on the skin. Additionally, you are causing unnecessary damage to your heart and stomach, among other vital organs. Worrying releases adrenaline and other hormones to the brain, leading to severe emotional responses from the nervous system.

Your life would be so much more pleasant without putting that undue stress on the body and mind. Sometimes anxiety is hard to avoid, but just imagine that inner peace that you will feel once you begin to slowly let go of all of those things that plague you on a regular basis. Your tummy will slowly let go of all of those knots, and your forehead will no longer crinkle up. You can be free of all of that anxiety by simply letting go one step at a time.

A life without anxiety means taking back the control over various aspects of your life. It is about not giving in to those worrisome thoughts and feelings that pervade your mind. It is about learning to not sweat the tiny details of every little thing, and about being strong. But being strong does not mean that you cannot relax. Living without anxiety involves a great balance of everything, and learning to take the good with the bad.

It is possible to be that little kid again, while maintaining the maturity of adulthood. For example, your life does not have to always be work. Accomplish some vital tasks throughout the day, then treat yourself to some ice cream or other indulgence you may not have had in awhile. Anxiety takes over sometimes as a form of punishment to ourselves, but we have to remember not to miss out on so many of life's little pleasures and treasures.

While life is certainly not all rainbows and kittens, we can certainly try our hardest to alleviate some of that pressure in order to lead healthy and fulfilling lives. If we are tense and wound up, this cuts into the fun side of our personality, until we find that we have missed out on so much. So unclench those fists, put up your feet, and start the process toward living without anxiety.
