2. Are you anxious?


Is worrying one of your characteristics? Well, stop! It is okay to

worry, but at the right time.

Psychologists at the University of Pennsylvania tell patients who

suffer from anxiety to regularly do a daily twenty minute “worry

session,” always at the same time and in the same place. Collect your

head full of worries during the day (don’t suppress them!) and then

pour them out during your daily worry session.

Exaggerate your worries to the point of absurdity - knit your

brows, make faces, let the sweat flow, shake and cower as much as

you like. In other words, make a caricature of the part of yourself that

is always worried, and in so doing exorcise it.

Eliminating worry will help prevent numerous psychosomatic

illnesses, which result from living in a state of permanent anxiety.
