Worrying rarely solves anything, but many of us just can’t resist doing it whenever we should be doing something else. Instead of letting worry distract you from your life, set aside a special time for it.
If you’re the kind of person who spends the first 10 minutes of the Uber ride to the airport worrying that you accidentally left the oven on — even if you didn’t even use the oven that day — you can quell your anxious brain with a quick smartphone precaution.
You’ve got enough going on in your life. Your bills, your job, your relationships and your insecurities add up to a lot of anxiety for yourself. So don’t make your anxiety worse by taking on the anxiety other people try to dump on you.
