Weekly Challenge (Omwork) – The World Health Organization has said that by 2020, anxiety and depression will be the #1 disability worldwide. Twenty five percent of US women are taking an anti depressant or anti anxiety medicine, and sleep dysfunction is at an all time high. All you need to do is turn on the news or check a facebook or twitter feed to see why.
Whenever I start to feel anxious, I think back to a flow chart that I came across years ago (if you would like to find it yourself, type “do you have a problem no then why worry” into google search or any browser). The premise is simple –
Do you have a problem in your life or work? No. Then why worry?
Do you have a problem in your life or work? Yes. Can you do anything about it? Yes. Then why worry?
Do you have a problem in your life or work? Yes. Can you do anything about it? No. Then why worry?
Words to live by each and every day! It reminds me of a bible verse from
Matthew 6:27 “Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?”
