What to Do When Things Feel Out of Control
The writer Erma Bombeck famously wrote, “Worrying is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do but it doesn't get you anywhere.”
Maybe things are stressful at work. Or money is tight. Maybe you just had an argument with a family member. Or you’re worried about whether your child is vaping. Or all of the above.
When things feel out of control, it can help to take a step back and determine what you have control over, and what you don’t.
This exercise is all about determining what’s in your control and what’s out of your control. It’s about understanding where your worrying is helpful, and where it may just be making you feel worse.
