Do you want to halve your worries?
And double your happiness?
Silly question, perhaps. Because there's probably no one alive who wouldn't want to worry less.
Sometimes it seems there just aren't enough hours in the day for all the things we have to worry about.
Because worry is a vicious cycle: the more we worry, the more it sets off a chain reaction of more worry.
But what can you do about it?
Well, if you read my previous post, you'd realize that most worries are false - they simple never happen.
And all that time worrying, is time wasted.
And worse that that, it's happiness wasted.
Because worry is to happiness what pizza is to healthy eating - one simply can't exist in the presence of the other.
And at the end of my last post, I promised to tell you exactly how to turn the gruel of worry and negativity into a rich soup of happiness and positivity.
Only I'm not.
Because one mind focused on a problem/solution is great, but 35 are better:)
So to get the best answers, I threw the question out there. I asked great people, people who have found ways to stress less and smile more
And as in previous posts, I added in my own tuppence worth* on their stellar solutions.
Who'd have guessed they'd come back with such a diverse set of strategies for halving their worries and doubling their happiness! And that one or two might even disagree that halving their worries would double their happiness!
But these solutions work for them. And one or more of them will work for you too.
But which ones..?
*An old British expression meaning my opinion on the matter. If you're American you might say 'my two cents' . A 'tuppence' used to be worth about as much as two cents, I guess:)
So there you are - two dozen and more ways to halve your worries and double your happiness - the experts cut - and my tuppence's worth :).
Which tactic or tactics are you going to employ next time you find yourself worrying? Or do you have one of your own our experts haven't mentioned?
The only real problem you are going to have left is: what are you going to do with all time you've freed up from worrying?
Let me know in the comments and let's help everyone halve their worries and double their happiness!
