As salam alaykoum rahmattoullah wa barakatouh.
Expatriation, being a huge range of unexpected and tiring procedures, may generate a feeling of anxiety for those involved.
There are a lot of things that need to be taken special care of and this may be a source for worry. Below is an article on how to control the level of worry in an effort to avoid stress.
WHY SHOULD I NOT WORRY (PART ONE):
This article deals with different aspects of « worry », the issues it brings, how it can affect us and how to get rid of it.
« Worry » is what we call a normal feeling while we are in a state of trouble or while we are anxious.
It is not really a problem but it certainly is the root to many upcoming issues.
Worrying too much can cause stress.
And stressing too much over a long period of time can cause anxiety and when the feeling of anxiety persists, it can become a cause for depression.
While we agree that worry is a normal feeling, we also need to pay attention to the fact that it is the source of all those upcoming issues.
So it is to our advantage to stop worrying so as to end the source of other possible upcoming problems.
The big question is HOW?
To answer this question it is important for us to understand WHY WE SHOULD NOT WORRY?
Explaining this to non believers might be a task while believers will easily understand this. Even though a problem might give us this uneasy feeling of worry, we can still be in control of our level of worry. Below are a few points of WHY WE SHOULD NOT WORRY.
-HOW DOES WORRY AFFECT THE SOLUTION OF OUR PROBLEMS ?
The feeling of uneasiness prevents us from an objective thinking in a critical situation.
We can easily be a prey of wrong decisions because of our level of worry. In short, the more you worry the less likely it is for you to find a solution to your problem.
-WHAT IS MY WORRY GOING TO CHANGE TO MY PROBLEM?
Your problem is going to remain as it is while you are worrying about it but you definitely will be adding more problems to your original problems.
You will not be eating as you should, not responding as you normally would to your social interactions, having sleep disorders and mood swings.
