When we worry about something I think we tend to stay up in our heads and forget about what's going on with our body.

Our bodies can actually tell us so much about what's going on - alerting us to the fact that perhaps we need to stay calm rather than continuing to worry. And boy can we worry.

But what's the use of worrying so much? Someone who has never had a big burden weighing down on their shoulders would ask such a silly question, and most likely get no response.

I think we tend to focus on what is worrying us and analyze the hoohoo out of it until we feel that there is some movement toward an outcome. Sometimes, yes it may seem pointless, as you have already thought out any kind of solution and gotten yourself nowhere, but you'll persist with it until your brain can think you out of this situation.

This can pay off, but the stress involved can take it's toll. It may be hard to find a distraction or focus on anything but the problem you are trying to resolve, but just don't forget your body while your spending so much time with your mind.

Our body can help us. It is connected with the mind. Walk while you think and talk when you feel you are on the brink. Sometimes we can mistake thought for action.

Instead of headbutting the same wall hoping for a different outcome, perhaps look toward what you can do, and what you can fix.

And pay attention to your body through this process. Take notice of your breath, or how you are feeling physically.

I've recently realised that there are other ways to help me along the path of figuring things out. And I've come to the conclusion that we shouldn't just think outside the square but exist outside of it too.

If your mind won't allow you to stop worrying, but your body is insisting that you do...listen to it. And then come to your body's aid. It will return the favor, I'm sure.

Rest, sleep, walk, exercise, eat well, get some sunshine...and as Yoko said to John...breathe.
