worrisome

узбакойтесъ (пачи тайте):

I worry to some extent, of course, but I don’t think I worry as much as a lot of people.

Many people worry about how much they worry!


Today, the New York Times had an interesting article by Roni Caryn Rabin, “Worried? You’re Not Alone.”

In it, Rabin points out several intriguing findings in a Liberty Mutual Insurance research paper, the “Worry Less Report.”

Apparently Millennials worry about money. Single people worry about housing (and money). People worry less as they grow older.

...here are some ways to tackle worrying:

1. Break your worry into separate pieces, and tackle them one by one.

Identify the problem (my Eighth Personal Commandment), clarify your goals, try to think of solutions. “Grab a pen and paper and brainstorm…studies have show this approach can help ease depression and anxiety.”

2. Schedule time to worry.

Elizabeth and I discuss this at length in episode 56 of the Happier podcast.

3. Practice accepting uncertainty.
