Your points are easier said than done; however, if they’re sincerely done, one opens oneself up for greater peace and happiness than when they inadvertently submit to stress. Controlling one’s mind, one’s self, could be the wisest decision anyone can ever make. It does also wonderfully affect the outside world.

If you can’t change it – let it go! You can’t control everything and trying only leads to unnecessary frustration. Focusing your energy on the areas where you can have a positive influence will help take your mind off of the worry.

Great post. I like the ‘rehearse a strategy in your mind so you can easily implement it next time’. Having an alternative behaviour that is more resourceful, instead of the old limiting one gives your mind a choice and a better decision to take.

The moment you see/hear the old situation, your mind can switch and choice the new behaviour instead. In the toolkit of NLP, there is a technique called The Swish Pattern, it’s perfect for this kind of behaviour change.

There is always room for more happiness and less stress in life
