Worries by themselves are not actually as destructive as piling one on top of the other and letting them build up.
That’s what we tend to do – add worry upon worry.
To break the habit (and it’s one that we learn by necessity early in life) a simple cut and dry technique is used to help reduce the sheer number of worries.
For every new worry, eliminate or resolve a previous worry.
It can be done and is easy to learn – if you’re worried about something at work today, see if there is something else either at work or elsewhere in your life that you can let go of at least temporarily.
Often worries resolve themselves without us doing anything but we don’t let them go and formally dispense with them – so they remain with us.
99% of that which we worry about never happens but we keep carrying them around and adding to them.
For every new worry, let one go.
