Here’s a Simple Guide to Get You Started:
Step 1: When a worry pops into your head, write it down and set it aside.
Step 2: Schedule a worry time, preferably later in the day.
Step 3: When worry time comes, address each worry individually. Ask yourself, “Is this something I can take action on?” If yes, plan a course of action. If not, allow yourself to let it go.
This technique might seem simple, but don’t underestimate its power.
You’re training your brain to compartmentalize worries, which allows you to manage them more effectively.
Over time, you’ll find yourself worrying less throughout the day and feeling more in control.
