10 Daily Habits Of A Worry Free Person

10 Daily Habits Of A Worry Free Person

Many say that worrying is an important part of daily life. They compare it to eating or breathing. People have also told me that it is inherently impossible not to worry. Well, after starting my non-worry journey over a year ago, I can honestly say that it is VERY possible. To show you how, here are my 10 daily habits of a worry-free person to help YOU be worry free too.

“Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow; it only saps today of its joy.”
– Leo F. Buscaglia

10 Daily Habits Of A Worry Free Person

1. They Are Always Positive

Positivity is always the best policy for a worry free person. When you are constantly negative, and forever seeing the bad side of the situation, you increase the number of things that you have to worry about.

From experience, when I see things in a better light, I have no need to be concerned about the outcomes because I am certain that something good will happen in the end.

 

2. They See The Solution

10 Daily Habits Of A Worry Free Person- They See The Solution

This was a very big eye-opener for me. When I was younger, I always dwelled on the problem. “My rent is due, but I have no money,” or “Oh no. How will I ever afford to attend university?” It always seemed like there was some random problem popping up.

A good friend of mine told me that as a Christian I shouldn’t be focused on the problem, because I serve a God who is bigger than any problem. He was right.

If we focus on the solution, then we spend our time trying to figure out what to do versus wasting time worrying about what we can’t. A wise man once said, “Focus on the things you can do. Don’t worry about the things you can’t.”

 

3. They Ask For Help

A worrier will forever try to do things on their own. Whenever a problem arises, they might not want others to pry or are afraid of judgement, and thus keep it to themselves. Doing so will only increase the worry and the stress you endure. So why bother?

When you ask for help from someone you trust, you take a bit of the weight off of your shoulders and balance it. Worry-free people are not afraid to confide in others when necessary, and ask for advice in a difficult situation.

It is much better to ask than to keep things bottled up.

 

4. They Pray

10 Daily Habits Of A Worry Free Person- They Pray

The Bible tells us that the prayer of a righteous man is a powerful thing. I also believe that anyone can pray if they truly believe in what they are saying. When I pray, I give my burdens to the Lord. I lay them at His feet and leave them there.

In that way, I put the problem on God and trust that He will help me work things out, or provide me with the means to do so. After having done this multiple times, I see no reason to worry about anything.

I encourage you to give all your worries to God and see how much lighter you feel afterwards.

 

5. They Are Very Decisive

Decisions can be a super daunting task. What if you get things wrong? Are there any repercussions from your actions? The questions are endless. A worry-free person is very decisive and sticks to the decisions that have been made.

There is no point in wavering when a decision comes up. This only serves to extend the life of the problem or issue affecting you which is unnecessary. Whenever this situation arises, try to follow your instincts and make a decision.

Your instincts are usually never wrong, and it also beats worrying about the end result of said decision.

If something happens afterwards, deal with it then. For now, stop worrying.

 

6. They Resolve Issues Quickly

10 Daily Habits Of A Worry Free Person- They Resolve Issues Quickly

I learned this one from a good friend of mine. Whenever he had a problem or some grave situation, he always strived to resolve the issues promptly.

He told me that by doing so he cut the life of the negative situation in half and thus cut the worrying time down to non-existent.

I have since taken his advice and do the same. As soon as something comes up, I think about solutions, then try to work as quickly as I can to solve the problem.

It might not always be easy going, but the important thing is that, instead of worrying, you are working your way to your happy ending.

 

7. They Take Time To Breathe

Social media can cause a lot of stress and worry. “Everyone looks so happy.” “Why are they so popular and so rich?” “Where is my version of Channing Tatum when I need him?”

Spending too much time on social media can cause you to start comparing your life to the lives of others. When you start doing this, you risk worrying about attaining what you see. Truth is you can’t.

Taking time away from social media is a great thing. It gives you time to yourself. There is no more outside noise. It’s just you and you. Worry free people do this daily.

It could be 30 mins, an hour or two. Just take some time to get away from the madness and just enjoy your peace and solitude.

 

8. They Are Slow To React

10 Daily Habits Of A Worry Free Person- They Are Slow To React

“Why shouldn’t I just curse someone out when they cross the line?” “When can I yell at my boss?” We are to be slow to react to situations. Why?

When you take the time to think about your actions, you have the time to weigh the pros and cons. For every action, there is an equal opposite reaction.

Take the time to think: “If I yell at my boss, will I get fired? If I get fired then I won’t have a job, right?” The best thing to do would be to calmly speak to him or her.

This way there is no negativity on your part. Better yet, there is no worrying after the fact.

 

9. They Don’t Dwell On Simple Matters

Living in Japan as a black woman can be really great but it can also be super annoying sometimes. On any given to trip into the city I tend to get the usual microaggressions.

Some include people staring with piercing eyes, people not sitting beside me in a full bus, etc. These microaggressions can cause worry, not in the sense of “Oh my. What will I do?” but in the sense of “Will, I ever fit in? Will I make friends?” etc.

I encourage you to not dwell on such simple things. If you want to get unto the worry-free road, then don’t spend your time concerned about what others think about you. It’s pointless.

My mom always told me that what people say or think ain’t none of yours (your business). I agree. Don’t worry about them. In fact, don’t worry about all. 🙂

 

10. They Go To Bed Happy

10 Daily Habits Of A Worry Free Person-They Go To Bed Happy

After going through an entire day, practising all of the above, is there any question that worry free people go to bed happy? Before you go to end ensure that you even do one of the following and I guarantee that you will have a good night of worry free sleep.

  • If someone has upset you, try to resolve issues immediately
  • Make a list of everything that worries you and burn it
  • Pray
  • Get into some comfy pyjamas
  • Think happy thoughts
  • Sleep

So there you have it the 10 daily habits of a worry free person. Also, let me know, are you a worrier? Do you think you can do each step on a daily basis? Comment below.

    I hope one day I can be a person like this. Great post xx

  2. December 15, 2017 / 6:52 AM

    I wish I could be a worry free person but it just not in my DNA. My days would be less crazy.

    • December 15, 2017 / 8:17 AM

      I guarantee that if you try, you’ll see how great that feeling can be 🙂

  3. December 15, 2017 / 7:56 AM

    This is a great list! I’d also add, though, that sometimes it really IS okay to simply feel what we feel and sometimes what we feel is less than worry-free, as long as we don’t dwell on those feelings at length and make them our primary focus. ❤

    • December 15, 2017 / 8:06 AM

      Yes! I will def add this to my list. Thanks for commenting.

  4. December 15, 2017 / 9:45 AM

    This is all so true, and sleep is SO underrated! It’s hard to do when you feel like you have the weight of the world on your shoulders, but a well rested mind offers up a clarity that leads to solutions.

    • December 15, 2017 / 8:40 PM

      Yes sleep can make a world of a difference when properly utilized. Thanks for the additional commentary.

  5. December 15, 2017 / 9:49 AM

    I have to work on some of these tips. The first one I think I really need to work on is to become slow to react. Sometimes, my temper just gets the best of me and I regret my actions afterwards. Thank you for these great pieces of advice

    • December 15, 2017 / 8:41 PM

      You are so welcome. This is a really hard one and it has taken me years to learn all that I have so far.

  8. December 15, 2017 / 11:26 PM

    It’s funny because in the beginning of this list I’m like the opposite of all of them! I didn’t think I worried that much! But I’m honestly working on it because I’m very aware of my worrisome traits.

  12. December 16, 2017 / 7:17 AM

    These are some really great ideas! I do tend to worry a lot, but these would be very helpful

  13. December 16, 2017 / 7:22 AM

    I can really learn from this. I’m a worrier!

  14. December 16, 2017 / 11:51 AM

    I struggle with every single point you made as I’ve always been a worrier! My grandad used to say that 99% of the things we worry about never happen. Pinning this for future use since I definitely need to do better with worrying less!

    • December 16, 2017 / 6:26 PM

      Thank you so much. Trust me. I completely understand what that is like. I guarantee employing these strategies will help your life become that much better.

  21. December 17, 2017 / 10:28 AM

    I really loved this and I can totally relate with all of these! Very well written, I’m going to share on my socials, I hope more people get to read this!

    • December 17, 2017 / 3:13 PM

      Thank you so much! I really appreciate the support. You are so sweet.

  22. December 17, 2017 / 10:51 AM

    “I shouldn’t be focused on the problem, because I serve a God who is bigger than any problem” yes!! Usually the thing I’m stressing over ends up getting solved, usually by dumb luck (God) or the solution is stupid simple. Thanks for sharing this with us! I love this so much.

    • December 17, 2017 / 3:05 PM

      You are so welcome. I am so happy that you are able to see the solution over the problem and that approach has helped. Enjoy your day.

  23. December 17, 2017 / 11:50 AM

    What a great article. Thanks for these tips. I especially loved the one about being slow to react. Time definitely brings perspective.

    • December 18, 2017 / 10:01 PM

      Thank you for visiting. I’ve had to learn the hard to slow things down and that a soft answer also makes the difference

  24. December 17, 2017 / 12:07 PM

    I like the 10 daily habits that you came up with. They are definitely easier said than done though, but I guess that’s part of the journey. I especially liked number 8 which is that They Are Slow To React. I think being slow to react is somewhat similar to developing more emotional intelligence and self-control. Do you have any tips about how to be more decisive? For me, being endlessly indecisive definitely hurts me, but I’m not sure how to be more decisive.

    • December 18, 2017 / 10:04 PM

      Hi Justin. Yes these habits definitely take time and effort. I still remind myself consistently so that I don’t backtrack. As for decision making I can suggest the following :
      Give yourself no more than a day to decide big decisions and a few hours for small ones. During that time you can make a mental or physical list of the major pros and construction of your decision. Following your heart is also key. Go with the choice that instantly feels right and don’t be afraid to make mistakes. They make us stronger. Finally, once you make your decision stick to it.

    Very practical tips. It is just a matter of will power to follow them.
    Such traits can be cultivated with a bit of patience.

    • December 17, 2017 / 3:04 PM

      Thank you so much for your feedback. It does take patience and self control.

  26. December 17, 2017 / 3:30 PM

    Ten excellent pieces of advice, thank you!

  27. December 17, 2017 / 4:05 PM

    Sometimes when we are worried, we try to find ways of fixing our problems too fast, in which we mostly opt for the wrong ways. We have to thus do only what we can while leaving the rest to the Almighty if we can’t get help from others at the moment. If we remain positive in our downfall, God will grant us our breakthrough in due time! Thanks for sharing this!

    • December 17, 2017 / 5:14 PM

      Amen! I agree that God will always make a way to solve any issues we might be having.

  28. December 17, 2017 / 4:11 PM

    Numbers 8 and 9 are things I need to work on more in 2018! Love this post!

  29. December 17, 2017 / 10:24 PM

    These are all really great habits to start trying! I tend to worry a lot myself, so I’m going to have to try some of these out! Thanks for sharing!

  30. December 17, 2017 / 11:44 PM

    Great blog post! SO True! But I worry about everything lol!

  33. December 18, 2017 / 4:38 AM

    I loved points #2 and #9. Although I have an active prayer life, I still find myself worrying about problems and dwelling on things for longer than I should. Thanks for sharing these words to help increase my faith!

    • December 18, 2017 / 10:07 PM

      You are so welcome. Just remember that our God can do anything so leave everything to Him.

  34. December 18, 2017 / 7:31 AM

    Love this post! Besides, I do believe that the key to stay stress free life is by savoring the little things in life. I think slowing down and relishing the little things that make you beam goes a long way to stay free of worries in life. 🙂

    • December 18, 2017 / 10:13 PM

      Sounds like you have everything under control. Thanks for visiting my blog!

    • December 20, 2017 / 4:31 PM

      Lol that is definitely a good incentive to worry less.

  37. December 19, 2017 / 6:35 PM

    I just realized that I am more of a worry-free person but I react quickly to matters that annoy or disturb me. Need to work on that!

  38. Kim
    December 20, 2017 / 6:33 AM

    I am a major worry wart, so this is so helpful for me! I’m going to definitely take your advice!

  39. December 20, 2017 / 8:59 AM

    These are good habits even if just for self awareness of the things we are doing in our daily lives that might be worrying us!

    • December 20, 2017 / 4:28 PM

      Thank you so much for saying that. They really do make a difference in your day.

    I don’t think I know anyone who is truly worry- free. I hope I am able to reach here some day.

    • January 7, 2018 / 10:15 AM

      Thank you. I hope that you can use some of these tips to help you worry less.

  46. January 7, 2018 / 7:43 PM

    I’m am really enjoying reading your articles, they are so uplifting. I used to worry a lot about everything, but now like you said think positively and solve the problem not just worry about, I found this helps.

    • January 8, 2018 / 10:52 AM

      Thank you so much. I am trying to use my own experiences to help others as I was helped. Thinking positively really takes the shift off the problems and unto the answers. Continue working towards worrying less.

  47. January 15, 2018 / 9:56 AM

    I SO agree with you about asking for help being crucial! I had to learn this the hard way after having my daughter but it helped take so much worry off my plate by just getting over the fact I had to ask for help!

    • January 15, 2018 / 8:37 PM

      Yes. I tell you once you get the courage to ask for help it’ll truly make you worry way less as you have the support you need.

  48. January 20, 2018 / 11:09 AM

    I always used to laugh at my Mum as a child as she was such a worrier – I nicknamed her after someone who worried a lot in Sesame Street, these day I am probably worse than she ever was. I must work on it.

    • January 22, 2018 / 11:39 AM

      Haha. I bet your mom had so much going on that she was prone to worrying. The good thing is that you can now learn from your experiences and work on worrying less before it gets too bad.

    Worrying is a toxic habit. These are all great reminders for all of us.

  50. January 27, 2018 / 11:03 PM

    I thought this well thought out article. It is surprising that some people are afraid to ask for help.

    • January 29, 2018 / 8:27 AM

      It might a fear of judgement or a matter of pride. I’m not sure but I do know that asking for help really can help you out in any situation.

  51. January 27, 2018 / 11:31 PM

    I absolutely love this! Thank God, I don’t think I am a worrier. But I know that some people have mental health issues, for example, anxiety, so they might not deal with things so well. Thanks though, I thought the post was presented in a thoughtful and kind way.

    • January 29, 2018 / 8:26 AM

      Thank you so much. It’s great to hear that you are not a worrier.

  52. January 28, 2018 / 12:25 AM

    I find it really hard not to worry about day to day things. I have gotten passed the stage of caring or worrying about what people think of me. This is a good remimder that worry starts within and that changing your thought processes can have great results in achieving a worry free attitude! I learned about this in psychology, if you think negative you will get negative results they are called negative automative thoughts. The trick is to intercept the thought and look at it from a more positive perspective! Great post, I will definitely be practicing these more often!

    • January 29, 2018 / 8:25 AM

      Thank you so much. I completely agree that it starts from within so I try to control my thoughts and it really helps me not to worry about things especially those I can’t control.

  53. January 28, 2018 / 1:40 AM

    Great ideas. I actually do some of these and never realised it! As for some of your advice like praying, well, that I do not do so much anymore. I haven’t felt the need to, so I guess I’m becoming a worryfree person??
    Just love your content and your positive outlook always.

    This was a great read Dee! I’ve always strive to be worry free but once it comes to decisions that affect my outcome I am extremely indecisive. If it affects someone else’s life I have no problem though 😅

    • January 29, 2018 / 8:21 AM

      Thank you so much. It is definitely a process but you can so it.

  55. January 29, 2018 / 9:33 PM

    This is what positive people will get. A life so free physically and mentally at heart. Such people usually have long lives too..

  56. February 25, 2018 / 9:38 PM

    I think when people choose not to ask for the help its cos of the response they have received earlier when they have asked for it. So whenever sb comes to us for help we should not judge them

    • March 3, 2018 / 8:23 PM

      That can definitely be the case but we shouldn’t let it stop us

    Asking for helps means a lot to me, this helps me also evaluate myself to the point of view of others.

  58. March 19, 2018 / 5:16 AM

    Just today I was sharing some of these tips with my old friend who has a hard time not taking on and worrying about other people’s issues! She was convinced eventually but it did take some doing! Thanks again for sharing.

  59. March 19, 2018 / 9:03 PM

    Praying will ease all the burdens to our feelings. That’s one thing needed by people to live a happy living..
