We worry because we can accept only the positive outcome of a situation and cannot handle its adverse result. But can we afford to worry if we know that worrying creates obstacles and delays work? Worrying is detrimental not only on the mental and physical health of a person, but also on their spiritual progress. It also has a negative impact on the quality of life and makes the situation worse. Thus, we should stop worrying and taking stress. Let us have a look at the effects of stress and worrying:
Mental Effects: Effects of Worrying and Stress on Mind
Physical Effects: Effects of Anxiety on the Body
When one worries the mind is not present on the work at hand. What would become of a patient if the doctor’s mind wanders while performing surgery? Similarly, endless operations are going on within while eating. When the mind is not focused on the food while eating, the blood vessels become hard and results in high blood pressure and heart attack.
When you worry, the brain releases stress hormones into the bloodstream; the muscles get tensed and this results in backache, headaches, tremors, etc. Stress reduces the protective lining of the digestive system leading to gastrointestinal disorders.
Other physical effects that persuade us to make a firm determination of not to worry are:

Tell Me Something That Will Help Me Stop Worrying
From the moment you were born till the time you die, everything is discharging. Your current existence in the human form is a discharge. You had charged for a human birth in your past life, which is now discharging. The Lord does not object to any aspect of the discharge process, but the state of your meditation during the discharge process is of great significance. For example, as you conduct your business, the discharge is occurring. You started your business as a result of having charged karma for such a business. It starts to discharge the day you start your business, but your becoming engrossed in it will create a new charging process all over again.
