Of all the habits I’ve been trying to break over the course of my life, worry seems to be the most difficult to eradicate, and lately, it’s gotten a little out of control again. I’m not fond of thunderstorms (maybe I was a cat in a prior life?) and I find myself getting anxious when the forecast calls for storms. And half the time, the storms never even materialize, reminding me over and over how useless worrying truly is.

I figure I can’t be the only one struggling with reducing the amount of time I spend worrying, so I thought I’d share one of my go to resources again that always helps me get back into balance: the Women’s Meditation Network. Earlier this week, Katie Krimitsos shared a wonderful meditation to help you break the worry cycle. Click here to listen to Stop Worrying (scroll down the list a bit to find it,) and check out Katie’s other meditations to help you cope with anxiety, become more mindful, and even sleep better.

8 Comments on Sunday Quotes: Worrying

  1. Oh my gosh, yes, I’m a worrier. I don’t want to be, but it seems to come naturally. It does cause me some angst. Worrying also causes me to be proactive. Thinking back now, I’ve probably been a worrier my entire life. Many moons ago, when I was a teenager, my neighbor gave me a “Worry Bear” to hug and tell my troubles to! Perhaps she, a very caring friend of my Mom’s, was tired of listening to me and my many questions about life. (Lol) However, more recently, I started attending a yoga/meditation class! To my great surprise this has helped me so much with worrying. Lastly, I console myself a little about my worrying habit by remembering that I’m also very sensitive, observant, and kind person who cares deeply about people, animals and planet. Sometimes, I worry bc I care, and the result is helping others. So, anyway, that’s my story in a nutshell. Thank you Ingrid for sharing your writing. Always appreciated.
