#015 The Lifehack to Stop Worrying So Much
Welcome to The Friday Fix! Every Friday I share a quick mental strength exercise that will help you fix the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that drain you of the mental strength you need to be your best.
If you’ve ever been told you worry too much or that you’re a bit of an “overthinker,” tune in to today’s show.
I share one of my favorite strategies that can help you stop worrying so much.
It’s a science-backed strategy that really works. Researchers found that people are able to contain their worrying to just 15 minutes a day — which can be a huge improvement for people who are used to worrying almost 24/7.
It can free your mind up to focus on other things. And it can help you feel happier, more energized, and free.
I’ve used it with dozens of therapy clients over the years who have successfully stopped worrying so much.
The good news is this exercise only takes 15 minutes of your time. But don’t think of how much time it takes. Think of how much time it will save.
For many people, it’s a life-changing investment that helps them have more brainpower to focus on more important tasks throughout the day.
“There’s an old joke about someone saying, ‘Worrying obviously works. Most of the things I never worry about don’t happen.’ But many people buy into that notion, and they’re actually afraid of giving up worrying.”
“There’s a big difference between worrying and problem-solving.”
“Most people worry about things they can’t control anyway.”
