How to use worry time
Making a worry time is a practical approach to help contain worries to a set period of time each day. Many people worry and the worry can last for minutes or even hours. This can lead to feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. The aim of having a worry time is to postpone worries until the allotted worry time rather than focusing on the worries as and when they pop up. By making a worry time we are likely to reduce the time that we spend each day worrying. It will help us to stay focused on the things that we’re supposed to be doing and this will allow us to achieve more and enjoy our day.
