Methods to Stop Worrying: 2. Acknowledge the Thought or Worry

Acknowledging your Thoughts

Sometimes it feels impossible to let go of a thought or worry because of how heavy or strongly you feel about it. With thoughts like these, it would be more obstructive if you tried to ignore them or forget about them, as it magnifies the intensity of the thought.
