Last week, we talked about worrying -- that nasty little habit that, if left unchecked, will run a muck and quickly become larger than life. Well, all your anti-worry tactics were so wonderful that I thought today would be the perfect day to share some of them...
"I try to breathe and remember good things. I also try to distract myself, which may not be the healthiest tactic of dealing with issues, but sometimes the most effective!" --Mandy
"I find that when I let go and get lost in my artwork, I lose my worries during that time. It's absolutely relaxing and comforting for me." --Danie
"Worrying has never gotten me anywhere. I realize that not everyone is spiritual or practices a particular faith, but I've found that surrendering that worry in some way, whether one believes in a higher power or the fact that everything always works out somehow, is quite comforting." --Alyx
"Sometimes when I have tons of things on my plate at once, I begin to become preoccupied with what I will do about the situation, but when that happens, I force myself to stay busy with things that I love doing and spend time with the people I love. I'm happy to say that most of the time I am able to not worry, because in the end nothing is accomplished or made any easier by worrying." --April
Thanks for these wonderful tips, everyone! I'm going to keep them on hand for the next time I come down with the worry bug. What tips would you add, friends? xoxo
