Worry. The process of exploring thoughts and feelings about real or possible events. Worry can be about a specific situation or about many. Worry can rumble along at a low insistent level or can become all consuming, bringing anxiety, panic and paralysing fear. It can impact daily life, work performance, relationships, loved ones. For some, worry can be seen as important, useful. And of course, if harnessed quickly, worry can, in small doses, alert us to an issue and can lead to productive and effective problem solving, change and action. Yet in the vast majority of cases worry only causes distress and discomfort, with most worries never coming true and most worries never leading to any useful outcome. If you are aware of worry in your life, consider this : would you like worry to be less in Your life? How much time does worry take the lead in your life? How often is worry present? What are the worries about? Can you do anything about the worries? If so what can you do & when? If no, what benefit will there be to spending time worrying? Could you do something else with your time instead? What helps to reduce your worry? Try working through these questions, but also try not to fight , to resist the worries. Let them in, watch then drift by, let them be. Yet try to step back and not get caught up with the worries. Let the worries go. .
