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 What if my insurance is out of date?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.
