Hello and welcome to episode 257 of The Mindful Kind podcast.

In this episode, you'll discover three helpful worry containment strategies, including:

  • Having structured worry time
  • Doing your best to accept uncertainty (check out episode 217 for a helpful practice!)
  • Asking yourself "Is this worrying helpful?" And, if it's not, choosing a more helpful thought to focus on.

It can also be important to practice self-compassion. Worrying is a normal tendency for many people and there's nothing wrong with you for worrying every now and then! However, it can also be helpful to practice worry containment strategies to help manage excessive worrying.

If worries about work are affecting you, be sure to check out my audio course, Managing Stress at Work, on Himalaya Learning.
