The Good & The Bad about Worrying

The Good & The Bad about Worrying

Worry is important because it can help us to identify potential problems and to take steps to avoid them:

  • When we worry about something, we are essentially thinking about the potential consequences of that event.
  • Sometimes, worry can motivate us to take action & avoid a potential problem.
  • When we worry about something that has already happened, we can learn from our mistakes and avoid making them again in the future. 

However, worry is not always helpful, and that it can be harmful to our physical and mental health if we allow it to consume us. Navigating our worries is a super-power.
