Our minds are constantly thinking ahead, into the future. So the fear is associated with the ‘what ifs’. We then associate this thought with our emotions. The fear of getting hurt, danger, dread, fear of failure or loss. This then feeds the fear element, and has a big affect of your emotional state of mind.
However, if you live in the present moment, the here and now, this fear will become just a thought rather than an emotion that makes you feel unhappy, and anxious. As in the present moment you are coping and taking each and every moment as it arises.
So why not try to live in the here and now, and as you feel a fear arising acknowledge this thought and move on, to whatever you were doing when your mind wandered briefly to a thought about an event that fills you with worry, it can quickly accelerate through your emotions and your mood will change. The skill of living in the present takes time so work on it! Remember you can control your thoughts, if you have a worry then write it down and return to it when your not stressed or tired, as this worry may have a simple solution; if not the saying ‘a problem shared is a problem halved’ so talk to someone. Positivity is the key to happiness.
