It may sound counter-intuitive, but to control worry, you have to magnify it first. When you sense that you’re wasting time fretting about something, reach you a pen and paper (or your PC) and start writing. Describe in as much detail as possible why you’re worried. Then answer this question: What’s the absolute worst thing than can happen? By forcing yourself to think aboutand write down—the worst-case scenario, you detach yourself from events swirling around you. This alone will help you relax and think more clearly. Better yet, once you start writing you’ll analyze in a rational frame of mind your most irrational fears or doubts.
