How to overcome stress or overthinking

1. Trust creator:

Don’t you trust God’s plan? The creator of the universe. We sit on a bus when we don’t know the driver, we buy things when we don’t know the seller, and we used to attempt things when we don’t know the manufacturer. So, what’s the point of stress or anxiety? God knows well. He has better plans than we think. So, trust him and believe the process.

2. Establish prayer:

 Make your connection strong with God. Let your heart talk out in front of him. When you pray, your heart automatically starts believing him. Also, spiritual activities give peace to your soul.

3. Positive affirmation:

Every morning when you wake up say positive things to yourself such as:

I am in control of my reaction to situations, I am stronger than I think, I can handle every situation, and I am making this difficult only in my mind.

Say this every morning and night and you will see consequences. Because our minds and bodies act in the way we speak to ourselves. So, stay positive about yourself.
