Let Go of Worrying…

Let Go of Worrying….

Write down all of the issues you worry about, big, small, all of it

For each issue, write down if it is something you have control over or something you don’t have control over. If you don’t have control over it, let it go and park your brain somewhere else, because worrying won’t change it. Say STOP, Find a new thought to park your brain every time that unhealthy worrying comes up. Picture yourself on vacation walking on the beach and enjoying the day.

Write down, what are the possible outcomes of each situation. How realistic is it that it may happen?

If that outcome did happen how would you handle it, what would happen next, then what would you do, and then what would happen?  What you are doing is playing out each scenario of what you fear might happen, and what you would do each step along the way if it did.

You’ll recognize many things we stress over- don’t typically happen and if they do happen, you will go into action steps, and through a series of steps you will get over your challenge.
