Nine Ways to Stop the Worry Wheels in the Sacramento Magazine

October 3, 2012

Here are Nine Ways to Stop the Worry Wheels. These were featured in the July edition of the Sacramento Magazine. I’m thrilled to have contributed to this super article and I am happy to share it with you here! I hope you enjoy it and find these nine ways helpful for stopping your worry wheels and anxiety.

  1. Put your worries in a (mental) basket
  2. Consider your locus of control
  3. Exercise
  4. Adopt an antianxiety diet
  5. Practice mindfulness
  6. Tune in to the five senses
  7. Connect with others
  8. Cognitive behavioral therapy
  9. If all else fails, medication

I really like that this fits in perfectly with the holistic approach that Richard and C.R. Zwolinki advocate on their Therapy Soup blog on Psychcentral

What I like about the list is that medication is at the BOTTOM of the list, not the top. It’s so much better to try all the other options in varying combinations first. Great list!

Great list, and I agree with Sue, glad medication is at the bottom of the list. (But, I first read it as “meditation” and was a little surprised… then, I realized my mis-reading!! LOL!)

Love, Katherine

Agree that medicine should be at the bottom or maybe on another list.

Glad to see connect with others. This might be worth another

line item as in “Get Hugs From Your Closest Friend(s)”

Happy for you Trudy that you are contributing to this article.

Thanks for sharing. I am so happy to see other choices coming before medication. While medication can be necessary, I prefer natural remedies.
