Ever forget what you have learned and board the worry train? I did this yesterday. I felt like Mr Magoo as I worried about the blog on worry. "Oh, Magoo you have done it again". I realised, I was again, worried about trying to include everything I found useful, get it perfect and get it finished.
STOP - What can I do? Take a break, find someone to help ( a hungry studier will do) and make a plan to rewrite the blog in a simple practical way tomorrow. The first version, is here if you would like to read it. And here, below is the simpler and less worried version.
Things I have found useful to remember about worry
1. Worry is useless
2. There is never a good time to worry
3. We can stop worry about the future by being Aware to.......
4. We can stop worry about the past by being Aware to..........
5. We can't worry about ourselves & be concerned for others at the same time.
6. Worrying about others, never helps
7. Do your best
8. Happiness comes from, seeing ourselves trying to help others.
9. FEAR is an acronym for False Evidence Appearing Real
10. Everything happens for a reason
Using ABCD to stop worrying about the Worried Sick Blog ?
Stress A, B, C & D
A. AWARE - Pounding heart, breath rate increase - here is my friend stress here to help
B. BREATHE - Take 3 deep breaths and come to the present.
B. BELIEVE NOT - Stop & Please Don't believe those untrue, negative thoughts.
(In my case - I need to get this blog perfect, inclusive of everything and done right now
C. CONNECT with yourself and others kindly, from that wise spot
Instead of worrying you might want to.............
Next time you are tempted to board the worry train to Station Devastation - Aware to Stop, Breathe, don't Believe those thoughts, Connect with kindness to help, or to ask for help and to be grateful to others.
