Health Tip of the Day

Strategies to Cut Your Worries

  • Set aside a "worry hour." Put off all of your worrying until a certain time, allow a certain amount of time (30 minutes, say) and pick a certain place.

  • Don't dwell on what might happen; focus on what is happening and face fears with logical arguments: Even if it snows, I have snow tires on my car and flares all ready. After your "worry time" has ended, let go of your worries until your next "worry time."

  • Need a healthy outlet for anxiety? Exercise. It relieves tension and also helps control weight and strengthens your heart. Relaxation techniques (deep breathing, yoga) can help, too.

  • Get plenty of sleep and avoid caffeine, alcohol and drugs to help you relax that have not been prescribed for you.

  • When worries preoccupy you, try reading a soothing book or watching an upbeat movie.

  • Can't get over your worries? If you think you might be worrying too much, seek professional help.
