Help with translation - je me prend pas la tête

Can someone help me understand how "je me prend pas la tête" translates to "i do not worry"?

Thank you! :)

It's a metaphor : when you are struggling with something, you take your head between your two hands. Je me prends la tête -> I take my head -> I am struggling with this, I do worry Je ne me prends pas la tête -> I do not take my head -> I don't want to be at that point of struggling, I do not want to worry I don't know if I am being clear...


Yes, it's a colloquial idiomatic expression
