Everyone worries. Worrying can even be helpful when it spurs you to take action and solve a problem. But if you're preoccupied with what ifs and worst-case scenarios, worry becomes a problem. Unrelenting anxious thoughts and fears can be paralyzing. They can sap your emotional energy, send your anxiety levels soaring, and interfere with your daily life. You can train your brain to stay calm and look at life from a more balanced, less fearful perspective.
