Corrie's antidote for worry

“Worrying is carrying tomorrow's load with today's strength- carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn't empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.” ~ Corrie ten Boom

In psychology, WORRY refers to the thoughts, images and emotions of a negative nature in which mental attempts are employed to avoid anticipated potential threats.

As an emotion, worry is experienced as anxiety or concern about a real or imagined issue, often personal issues such as health or finances, or broader issues such as environmental pollution and social or technological change. Most people experience short-lived periods of worry in their lives without incident; indeed, a moderate amount of worrying may even have positive effects, if it prompts people to take precautions (e.g., fastening their seat belt or buying fire insurance) or avoid risky behavior (e.g., angering dangerous animals, or binge drinking). Excessive worry is the main component of generalized anxiety disorder.
