The worry. Have I left the iron on? What if it starts a fire? What if my cat dies in the fire? What if my house burns down? What if my insurance is out of date? What if I’m homeless?
Stop the spiral:
- Ask yourself – how likely is it to happen?
- What’s the worse that can happen?
- What would be a more helpful way of thinking?
- Notice the thought and let it go!
- Bring your thoughts back to the present.
