It’s time to worry less. Yes, it is. Sometimes we carry the world on our shoulders, and instead of it a better place, we end up creating more stress for us. Here are some simple tips to relieve the heavy mental burden and feel more carefree:

1. What others think

Dance to the beat of your own heartbeat. Act like a fool. Do what you have to do, but do not take into account what others think. It is your life, your decisions, and choices. The rest loves to judge. Why should you care if they do? Only you define yourself, so let them entertain themselves if it makes them happy. When you worry too much, about what they will say, you live your life for them and not for yourself.

2. Errors of the past

Do not be so hard on yourself! Accept that everyone is wrong sometimes; is part of the human condition. You really are allowed to have a bit of slack. Learn to forgive yourself more often.

3. Failure

The big word with “F” that everyone fears. It does not have to be a scary concept. It all depends on your attitude towards him, because if you see him as “not perfect,” you’re going to be permanently miserable. A more realistic idea is to give up:  If you have not given up, you have not failed. Look at it as a learning curve, a process of trial and error.

4. What do you not have?

Generally, we focus on what we do not have and we end up feeling completely deprived. What’s the point? Why do you want to torture yourself with all the things you do not have? That kind of thinking will not serve you in any productive way. Make a list of all the things you appreciate. There will always be others with more and others with less. What you have is enough.

5. “What if …”

We can go crazy having to worry about what may happen in the future. No one can predict the future (psychics could dispute this), and there is no point in torturing you unnecessarily for things that may never happen. Remember that this type of worry wastes energy and distracts you. Face the concern and if you can do something in the present moment, do it. If not, distract yourself and “put aside” concerns.

6. Thoughts like “I will be happy when …”

When we believe that we will be happy once something has happened, we effectively put our lives on hold until that event happens. Desire your current life go is a valuable loss of happy moments in life. You should be more in the moment and worry less about being happy in the future. Decide to be happy now. Happiness is not a destination; it is a way to travel.

7. Lamentations

Repentance is a part of life. The past cannot be undone, so it’s worth looking at what you’ve done in life with philosophy. Have you learned anything from it? If you learned not to do it again or to try a different approach, then you ended up with a positive result. Accept what has happened before, allow human error and move on.

8. Rejection

Many of us are so afraid of rejection that we stay in our comfort zones and never risk real intimacy. Bring your heart up your sleeve and risk being vulnerable. The more you hide because of fear, the more it will grow. Show that you can express your feelings and live with the consequences. You will overcome the fear of rejection and you will feel more unconcerned. Even if the result is not as expected, you will soon realize that it was not as bad as anticipated and that you can cope. Have a little thicker skin, be brave and look at life as an adventure.

9. Expectations of society

Be thin, be beautiful! Show your wealth and status, so they will adore you! What nonsense! When you like and accept yourself as you are, you do not need to prove anything to anyone. Do not buy the constant images of the perfection of the media, most are retouched and lead us to believe that we should all seek to be so perfect Do not take it seriously! Love yourself, with imperfections and everything. Self-acceptance is true freedom.

10. Be good enough

It is easy to feel that we do not qualify in any way since we live in a very competitive world. It’s okay and it’s even healthy to want to improve and grow as a person but to believe negative ideas about how we’re not good enough is not. Always defies this kind of thinking what is “good enough”? Where is the book of the international rule that clarifies what is? As long as you feel happy with who you are, where you are and how far you have come, that is all that matters.
