Worrying is an interesting term. It is a label we use for an aspect of fear about the future, and then becoming kind of obsessed with it. We spin stories in our head about how something will happen. How or will we be able to respond? What if we don’t know what to do? And so forth.
Let’s make believe you weren’t worried about something for a second. Let’s say you were concerned. How would that feel differently in your body - to be concerned, rather than worried? We often label something a certain way and that label becomes our experience.
I’m going to ask you to try something out. The next time your mind starts spinning, think to yourself, I’m concerned about this. Literally replace the word worry with concern. If we are concerned, we can perhaps plan for a few outcomes and decide how we will act in the situation. It’s ok to be concerned right? It means we care about something and want to find a way to improve it.
Give it a try and let me know how it goes for you.
