Dealing with Worry and Anxiety

When worry and anxiety is far out of proportion to the actual likelihood or impact of the feared event. People find it difficult to keep worrisome thoughts from interfering with attention to tasks at hand and have difficulty stopping the worry. People suffering from this often worry about everyday routine life circumstances such as possible job responsibilities, finances, misfortune to their children, household chores, car repairs, or being late for appointments.

In order to decide whether you are experiencing these symptoms, please read through the following list. Does it describe how you feel, think and behave at this point in time?

Physical Feelings:

  • Sweating
  • Feeling tired, lack of energy
  • Muscle Tension
  • Disturbed Sleep
  • Headaches
  • Stomach upsets


  • Hypothetical and apprehensive thinking that usually start with a What if….
  • Will I be able to cope with the unknown ( Intolerance of uncertainty)
  • Positive beliefs about worry ( helps me to problem solve problems or worry prepares me for the future. )
  • Negative beliefs ( All this worrying will make you ill)


  • Worrying that is excessive and uncontrollable and interferes with everyday routines
  • Difficulty making decisions
  • Seeking reassurance from family and/or work colleagues
  • Procrastinating ( putting things off)
