I LOVE Mary Cantando's email newsletter! Today's "Weekly Growth Tip" is about worrying. Past tips have been about organizing, staying young, surprising your customer...Mary has some simple and very effective short tips that really hit the spot every time. Here is the list today:
5 Ways to Stop Worrying
- Keep busy.
- Pick a specific time of day and allow yourself to worry for 10 minutes at that time each day. If you start to worry at other times, remind yourself that you've got that 10 minutes reserved to worry, so you don't need to worry right now.
- Don't worry about something you said or did in the past. We think others remember dumb things we said or embarrassing things we did, but these things are almost always forgotten by others and remembered only by ourselves.
- Think back to a specific thing you worried about that turned out fine. When you start to worry, remind yourself of the hours you wasted worrying about something specific that ended up better than you expected.
- "You can't change yesterday, but you can ruin today worrying about tomorrow." Tana Greene, as quoted in The 2010 Woman's Advantage Shared Wisdom Calendar.
