Are you a worrywart? Do you lie awake at night mulling over things that might happen? Do you always expect the worst? Have you worried obsessively about something only to have everything turnout okay? Do you drive your friends and family crazy with your worrywarting?
Worrywarts work themselves into a near panic with scary thoughts, going around and around, making themselves sick. The solution is not to stop worrying. Worry is useful in planning and preparing – a kind of mental “fire drill” – for mentally rehearing options. The problem is that worrywarts get stuck in the dangers and downside, convinced the worst is inevitable. The Worrywart’s Companion shows how to worry smart. You’ll learn how to worry a problem through, then act to soothe yourself so that you can get a good night’s sleep.
Brimming with practical ideas, positive, easy to understand, and fun to read, The Worrywart’s Companion explains how worrywarting is learned. The good news is that it can be unlearned! Includes twenty-one simple things you can do when you feel a worry coming on. Instead of worrying yourself sick, you’ll learn how to do the work of worry, then take action to soothe yourself so you can let the worry go—so you can get a good night’s sleep!
