For the organized mind, Write down your fears. Getting fears down on paper can help to reduce their effect, according to a University of Chicago study.
For the business-minded, Open a worry window. This strange title refers to a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy technique which teaches you to confine worrying to 15 minutes each day.
When a worry pops up in your head cast it aside until the time you've decided on. This will be difficult at first, but control will develop over time.
During your worry appointment, open the floodgates and write down everything that is making you fret. At the end of the week, identify any repeat worries. This way you are taking charge of your worries.
Lastly, the hysterically funny, Bore your fears to death. You can kill off your worst worries with what a researcher at the American Institute for Cognitive Therapy in New York, calls The Boredom Technique.
Repeat a feared thought over and over and it will go away. If you are worried about losing your job, repeat, ‘It’s possible I can get fired’ hundreds of times over 20 minutes, slowly, focusing on the words and you’ll get bored with your worry. To see more tips: the Mirror.
