    • Here's a quick tip if you find yourself worrying too much about something.

      Don't try and ignore what's worrying you but, if you can't immediately do something about it, give yourself a worry time. Decide that at a certain time you will spend some time giving the worry your full attention.

      Put it in your diary and then when one o'clock, or whatever time you choose comes, sit down and think about it for your allotted time.

      You'll come back to the issue refreshed and may even get a much better solution!

      How do you cope with your worries?

        • Actually, I find it better to not give it any time. Yes, acknowledge the worry and issue exists but then give it no more energy. I do agree when you come back to something you have a different perspective but I believe it can be more productive to address it when it comes up again and not give it additional energy unnecessarily. Basically, I don’t agree with giving it a scheduled time, this gives it energy. Let things work themselves out and address you again when the time is right for it and you.  

          Granted, scheduling time may work for others but for me it’s counterproductive.

        • Hi and thanks for commenting. estatic
          Yes, I understand your point about giving it energy. You seem to have worrying under control which is great.
          But I have found it a useful technique to use with coaching clients who find themselves worrying all the time. Interestingly they often report back that once they have delayed the worrying, they don’t actually come back to it!
          Kind regards,
