Ways to Stop Future Tripping
Coming Back to the Present
It’s easy to “future trip” when our present is already so challenging.
Instead of worrying about a future that may never come to fruition, coming back to the present moment and cultivating moments of playfulness, pleasure, connection and gratitude is the antidote.
Future tripping (aka anticipatory anxiety) is when we're ruminating about fears or hopes of the future.
While creating goals or imagining the future isn't problematic in itself, when we obsess and worry about it, it can be.
Bring increased awareness to this habitual pattern that takes us away from the present.
Recognize that the future we imagine may never come to fruition and even if it does, we're missing out on the present moment.
Take mindful action we need to let go of that imagined future and come back to the present.
Recognize what IS and IS NOT within our power and control...and breathe through it.
Come back to our body and physical sensations that root us in the present moment.
Cultivate moments of play, pleasure, connection and gratitude in the present moment.
