Scheduling Worry

Posted on July 17, 2013

Worry and the daily concerns of life can render us powerless if we're not careful. Conflicting thoughts from multiple directions can impede progress on the most basic of tasks.

Try scheduling time to worry.

My time is late Friday afternoons. As concerns start to build during the week and I find myself beginning the slide down the slippery slope of worry and fear, I tell these well meaning but misguided passengers that they will have their moment, but just not right now. Interestingly, by the appointed time on Friday, they have both disappeared, things are sorted and I get to enjoy my late afternoon beer with a mind at rest.

Counter-intuitive yes, but it works for me and it might for you.
