Once, in a workshop, I learned to think of Scarlett O’Hara when I worry too much. Here’s how it works: Worrying breeds more worrying, so simply postpone it. Have a worry time set aside each day — maybe 10 minutes or so — with a soothing cup of tea or whatever relaxes you. Late in the afternoon is good. Write down what you worry about, and try to either overcome the worry or solve the problem. If you can’t, that’s OK. Read over the worries you had the day before. Pretty soon you will see possible patterns, such as worrying about things that are fleeting downers in life and not worth the time you gave them during your worry time. Try this. It works.
