Are you someone who hopes for the best, but prepares for the worst, so that if the worst happens you aren’t disappointed? Do you find yourself feeling anxious, not anticipation, but actual anxiety, when you’re waiting for some piece of information, or something to happen, be it good or bad? Would you, or others, classify you as a worrier?

Many of us grew up with people in our families who worried incessantly, and through the power of example, or osmosis, we also developed the tendency to agonize over what the future might hold. We desperately want positivity in our lives, or at least positive outcomes, and yet we know, deep down that we have limited power over what ultimately happens to us, and thus we fret over the possibility that things may not work out as we wish. Our view of life, at least at times, becomes overwrought with fear. We want what we want, but the fear of it not happening takes over our thoughts in the form of worry.

In this podcast, we will talk about how worry does not serve our overall sense of wellbeing, nor does it affect outcomes. We will learn that it only saps us of precious mental and emotional strength, thus it is merely wasted energy.
