Do you have any techniques for dealing with worry?


Do you worry a lot? Do you have techniques that you use to deal with times that you can't help but worry? As a side note: While making this question I wrote 'worry' at least twenty times and now it is starting to sound like a foreign word...hate it when that happens. :)

    I love these analogies, Renee, and it reminded me of the Guatamalen Worry Dolls, same concept. Funny aside: I bought a barrette with those worry dolls and because I'm left-handed, they stood on their heads when I had them in my hair!

    One thing about worrying is when I am then I have to admit I am doing that thing call 'control'. LOL. I let go than. I do not need to control things around me, just my own actions and reactions.

    I like the action plan...it balances out the worry - or I guess even cancel it out because you find a way to solve the worry. Great suggestion. I am really into prayer myself - I find it is a great way to let go.

    Great answer. I love the thought of staying in the now, it is something that can eliminate a lot of negative emotions. Thanks!

    took a glance at ur impressive hub topics; wondering if ur worrying is based on actual knowledge of what can go wrong. F.C. probably works b/c of feeling of control. The statement helps me: I never worry about things over which I have no control:)

    I'm not sure why you would say I wouldn't like it. Have confidence in your beliefs! I believe both in prayer andi n councidence, and this is a great technique!
