What If . . .: Daily Thoughts for Those Who Worry Too Much
"Do you worry? Is it a problem that paralyzes you or keeps you from accomplishing all you are capable of?" If you are a chronic worrier, you know that everyday life can be a succession of tense dramas. Seeing the worst outcome–what therapists call "awfulizing" or "catastrophizing"–leads to undue stress and often results in stress-related illnesses. When someone tells you to simply stop this energy-draining process, do you think, "I want to, but I can’t "? Now there’s help. In this 366-day affirmations book, therapist A.J. Chevalier will show you how to reframe your worries into positive behavior. You will learn to deal with stress by flowing with your usual response (worry), recognizing the feelings of worry and looking for opportunity in each worrisome situation. An affirmation of personal strength that you can gain from the situation follows each entry. These daily meditations will help you see your many sources of worry for what they are: opportunities for positive change and growth.
