11 Habits of Worry-Free People

April 28, 2014 2 min read

Worry is a completely natural part of life, it’s standard to think of the consequences of your actions and imagine that they turn out negatively. Worrying may be natural, but it is generally not helpful or productive. The Huffington Post describes the 11 habits of people who never worry. 1.   Focus on the present –what ifs are not helpful, focus on the now, not what may or may not happen later 2.   Practice mindfulness –a term I am very familiar with from years of CBT, this technique helps to keep you ground in the present. don'tworry2 3.   Their brains function differently in worry-inducing events –a scientific study showed that worriers brains are far more active than positive thinkers brains when it comes to difficult situations. 4.   More willing to take chances –this means being more flexible in your willingness to test out solutions that may have a negative consequence. 5.   Having a sense of perspective –instead of jumping to a worst-case-scenario, distancing yourself from the situation can show you how unlikely that negative outcome is to happen. don'tworry4 6.   Get to the root of their worry –worrying can spin out of control, one worry leads to 10 other worries, focusing on the root issue can solve the problem rather than generate more problems. 7.   Designate time for worry –designating a 15 minute time window for worrying makes you push any worries out of your mind for the rest of the day. 8.   Confidence that they can handle whatever comes –this point is pretty self explanatory, just trust in yourself to be able to handle any problem that comes up. 9.   Ability to see positive outcomes in bleak situations –even seeing that there COULD be a positive outcome rather than focusing on the absolute worst-case-scenario is the mark of a worry-free person. 10.Ask themselves the right questions –questions like “is it my problem? Do I have control over it? Have I done everything I can? Is it imminent?” can drastically cut down on worry. don'tworry3   11.Know how to perceive their negative emotions –be self aware, and use your emotions to make informed decisions, rather than fight against those emotions. As someone who has had years of therapy for anxiety related issues, it’s amazing how so many of these techniques are things that they teach you, or you just pick up, from mental health professionals. Thinking about it now, I have to say that I guess I’m not a big worrier, something I probably wouldn’t have said 5 years ago. This just goes to show that, even though you may not be able to change your brain's chemical make-up, you can adopt some of these habits and become worry free.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
