I love the old saying “worrying works – 90% of what I worry about never happens”
Its so true, so why do we spend so much of our time worrying? often when we’re trying to get to sleep at night, or just when we should be focussed on something else?
Here are my favourite tips to reduce worry in your life
- Ask yourself will it matter 100 years from now? what about a year from now? what about a week from now? put your worry into perspective and decide just how important it is
- Think about the outcome – so what’s the worst that can happen? If you don’t get that job or pass that test – there will always be other opportunities, will it really be the end of the world?
- Decide just how important the issue is and how much time you are going to spend on it – then move on
- Use the worry decision tree in the tools section to guide you through your worries
