Worry ‘Tastes’ Good

  1. Worry feels good because it gives us something (rather than nothing) to do.And this makes us feel a little less helpless and out of control.
  2. Like the body craves calories, the mind craves control. When faced with a fearful situation that we can’t actually do anything about, we give ourselves the illusion of control (and relief from helplessness) by engaging worry.
