What Goes on in the Brain When We Are Worried?
Researchers have done so many studies on this topic. Our brain really does change when we worry. Activity in the amygdala is much different for those meditating on peaceful subjects than for those who are worried about something. And it doesn’t matter what you’re worried about. The negative impacts are the same in our bodies whether you’re worried about a big interview, a new relationship, a spouse, kids, or personal problem.
Teacher and spiritualist, Zhang Xinyue reminds us that as humans, we all experience challenges in life. You may have lost your job recently and be worried about how you will pay the bills. Though this is a valid concern, worrying does no good whatsoever. In fact, it causes harm to your muscle tissue, your heart, and other areas of your body. You can’t be your best if you’re worried.
Worry is like meditating on negative outcomes. When we meditate on the beauty of a rain forest or the love of our family, we achieve inner peace. But when we focus our thoughts on some negative situation, we stop being productive.
Teacher Zhang Xinyue has written a book called Create Abundance where she discusses topics like this. She helps us understand how important it is to let go of negative mindsets and concentrate on abundance.
Zhang Xinyue author of Create Abundancehas said this:
“Within the circle of the wise, important topics include giving, communicating and contributing. Follow the Way, and abundance is bound to come true.”
