16 Questions To Ask Yourself When You Feel Worried

How often do you find yourself worrying about things that you really don’t need to be? Many of my clients come to me in a state of constant over-thinking, and we are talking non-stop mind chatter that cripples their ability to create the life they want.

This is usually due to worrying about others first! It’s natural to be concerned about others’ well-being but it should not affect one’s own life. Worry is triggered by the unknown and the following questions are to help guide you to acknowledge your thoughts and question if they are really worth mulling over or can be released. 

Mastering the mind takes a whole lot of work but if you find yourself in a bit of a state you can go through the questions and decide for yourself. Is what I am worrying about really necessary?

The lesson in the decision is then to focus your attention elsewhere and do something that builds positive thoughts and momentum instead of being stuck in a cycle of worry.
