Worry Reduction Techniques

November 9th, 2007

I cannot remember where I found this, but I didn’t write it. It does come in handy, from time to time.


Worry Reduction Techniques

1. When I find myself worrying, I will divert my attention from the future (or past) to the present.

2. The worst is very unlikely to occur, even if it does, I will handle it.

3. I will try to take one thing and one day at a time.

4. Relaxation will reduce both worrying and anxiety.

5. I will do planning but reduce my worrying.

6. Worry is irrelevant.

7. I am not in charge of anyone else’s thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

8. People and situations do not upset me, I do.

9. I will recognize and let go of those things that I cannot change.

10. I will stop worrying now.

    How about “Don’t cross the bridge until you get to it”.

    Or what I say — we’ll burn that bridge when we get there.”
