Waiting to Worry
Sounds simple and actually simplistic, doesn't it? Much of our worry happens because of the messages we tell ourselves--you know, that little 'nAgative' tape that plays inside our head. The idea to apply this act of detaching from the outcomes and thus from worry, to our every day lives, makes sense. It helps us conserve valuable life energy for what really matters in the present. So next time you're tempted to worry about something, take a deep breath, count to ten...and then shelve it.
