We all worry every now and then. Everyone worries to some extent or the other. It is quite natural to worry, it’s our thinking styles and everyone have his/her own thinking styles. Our worries reflect our level of concerns regarding the upcoming and predicted outcomes if the future. One who wishes to stay fit may worry about his/her health. A student who is writing his exam may worry about his good results and ranks. Everyone would worry for something or the other, it is quite normal. However, the amount of worriedness and anxieties matters.
There are many people who are prone to worries and tend to worry too much. Such people often worry a lot and lose control over their own thinking. During the period, sadly, they have developed a habit of being over cautioned and taking things with the highest certainty. Such individuals often find themselves incapable of making any good decisions because they lack the focus of their minds and they continuously feel restless and inattentive. Their anxiety levels are very high, and they tend to worry almost always.
What is going inside the minds of people who always worry? What are the thinking styles of people who worry a lot? It has been identified that there exist a few common thinking styles of people who generally worry a lot and who are constant worriers. These thinking styles of people that are also termed as the variables of worrying, distinguish them from the rest of the crowd who worry comparatively less or who can have an effective control on their worries to a much greater extent.
Although most of these above thinking styles come to us naturally, still we tend to break down and feel miserably trapped with the thoughts. Unfortunately, the worry is a certainty of our life. Unwanted, troublesome, regretful and harmful things are bound to happen, no one can ever stop them to happen. It can be a sudden demise or some negative consequence, we tend to think a lot even before it potentially arises. It is a natural human tendency to react to such situations or complexities. However, it must be remembered that worry is simply unproductive in most of the cases. Unlike fear, people also sometimes tend to worry about the future uncertainties and threats that may or may not happen.

Anxiety and stress don’t have to prevent you from living and succeeding. The only thing missing in any situation is that which you are not giving.
What Do Stress and Anxiety look like in the Brain?
Everyone needs a certain amount of stress to survive – it’s what gets us out of bed in the morning and gives us the adrenaline to succeed. However, stress can become a problem when our bodies experience too much of it.
- 72% of adults feel stressed about money at least some of the time.
- 49% of adults experienced a major stressful event in 2015.
- 48% of Indians say stress has a negative impact on both their personal and professional live.
So, what exactly going on inside your mind when you feel overwhelmed?
- When your body detects stress, the hypothalamus reacts by stimulating the body to produce adrenaline and cortisol.
- These two hormones increase your heart rate, raise your blood pressure and temporarily increase energy to help you ‘fight’ or ‘take flight’.
- When your body recognises it’s no longer in danger, your hormone levels fall and your heart rate and blood pressure return to normal.
But, more often than not, stress can leave you feeling angry, anxious and scared.
