We all know about time outs. They are when we give someone a period of time or take a take a period of time ourselves to stop a behavior.
Today I want to talk about the idea of taking a "time in" to worry. At this point you may be asking yourself why I am promoting worry, which would be a fair question.
What I am actually doing is promoting the idea of setting aside a specific time in your day to worry and making the rest of your day worry free time.
Worrying thoughts are bound to crop up during the rest of your day, but make a note of them and then move on.
When your worry time comes up, address what is worrying you then. You may find that some of the things you were worried about have already been resolved. If so put them aside and focus on anything else that needs your attention.
When the worry time is over, move on with your day.
