Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How Not To Worry: The Remarkable Truth of How a Small Change Can Help You Stress Less and Enjoy Life More (Kindle Edition)
Divided into two sections - Section One - Understand and Section Two - Move on - this is an interesting book for those of us who find we dwell on things far too much. Some people worry about what might happen and others worry about what has happened. A certain amount of worry could be necessary but too much can spoil your enjoyment in life and wear you down so that you feel stressed all the time which is not good for you either mentally or physically.
Understanding why we worry can help us along the path of reducing or even eliminating our worries. Making a concerted effort to stop ourselves worrying where worry will serve no useful purpose using the techniques described in this book may well help us to enjoy life again instead of being weighed down by our worries.
The book describes how we use the three `As' to tackle our worries - Awareness of what exactly we're worrying about; Analysis of our worries - where we look at the subject of our worries in a rational way. This could include looking back at events form our past which may be over-influencing the present worry. The third `A' is action - and helps us look at what actions we can take to address our worry and maybe eliminate it entirely.
I found the book interesting and informative and if you are a worrier - or think you are a worrier - then this book can probably help you reduce the worry you feel on a regular basis. Even though I don't consider myself to be a worrier I found the book gave me food for thought. There is a list of further reading for those interested in the subject and various books and websites are mentioned in the text.
