Are you anxious?

Is worrying one of your characteristics? Well, stop! It is okay to
worry, but at the right time.

Psychologists at the University of Pennsylvania tell patients who
suffer from anxiety to regularly do a daily twenty minute “worry
session,” always at the same time and in the same place. Collect your
head full of worries during the day (don’t suppress them!) and then
pour them out during your daily worry session.

Exaggerate your worries to the point of absurdity - knit your
brows, make faces, let the sweat flow, shake and cower as much as
you like. In other words, make a caricature of the part of yourself that
is always worried, and in so doing exorcise it.

Eliminating worry will help prevent numerous psychosomatic
illnesses, which result from living in a state of permanent anxiety.
