- “I have a lot of work to do” “I had an argument with my husband.”
Trivial but daily worries. How can I resolve these?
- At UCLA, USA, an interesting experiment took place using the students as the subject.
- With the instruction of, ‘Think of a method to resolve daily worries,’ the students were separated into three groups.
- The first group did not receive any special instructions.
- The second group received instructions to look back the “process where the problem occurred.”
- “Think of a situation when your worries started- recall the person that was next to you, the location, the kind of words and actions you did.”
- The third group had instructions to concentrate on the future they wanted.
- “Imagine that your worries are being resolved. Imagine how assured you will be. Think of the satisfaction you will feel after your worries have been resolved.”
- Which group do you think were able to resolve their worries best?
- The result was the second group who reflected upon their past.
- It was said that recalling back at what happened in the past in detail, was more helpful than imaging the future results.
- When the situation was recalled, the reason for the problem was known
- As I could reflect upon my action, I strived to change.
- What worries did I have today? Close your eyes for a moment and try to recall.
- Who do I think of, where was the location when my worries began, what words did I hear and what kind of actions did I do.
- If you close your eyes for a moment and self-reflect, maybe you can find the clues for the solution of your worry.
