Do you know what the difference between worriers and non-worriers is? Well, worriers tend to feel a lot more anxious, depressed and lethargic than non-worriers.

Non-Worriers Can See The Positive In A Negative Situation

People who aren’t worriers have the ability to see hope in what may seem to be a bleak situation. A study was done in which worriers and non-worriers were shown a picture of a woman who was being held at knifepoint. Worriers were likely to think of the worst case scenario whereas non-worriers were more likely to think that the woman could escape and run away from her attacker. It’s amazing what our thought-processes can do to our bodies and minds. Because the non-worrier’s thoughts are more positive, they’re more apt to feel good about the world, have a better energy level and be healthier physically.

Non-Worriers Believe They Can Handle Anything That Comes Their Way

Non-worriers believe that if something bad does happen, they will be able to handle it. By them believing this, they are able to go through life with a whole lot less stress. Worriers, on the other hand, spend endless amounts of time obsessing about what could go wrong in most situations and they don’t feel like they have the ability to cope with a problem that could arise.

Non-Worriers Designate Time To Worry

Believe it or not, non-worriers designate a short time during the day when they will worry. This helps them to focus on the present. For example, if something comes up during the day that freaks them out, they will say to themselves, “I will think about this later, when its time to worry.” A lot of times what happens is that the worrisome thought goes away and isn’t all that important. Worriers tend to want to deal with their worrisome thought right away, which takes them away from their present snf they can’t focus on anything else.
