I'm a lifelong worrier and I don't know why; my guess is genetics. I must say Mr. Ferry's resolution seems like it would work pretty well.

The main thing that has helped me: Meditation. It puts things into perspective and the mind at ease.

The first rule is to keep an untroubled spirit. The second is to look things in the face and know them for what they are.

Believe it or not this advice was given to me by almost every cuban I interacted with during my vacations there two years ago, somehow every converstation ended in "No te preocupes"

maybe you should just skip the Perry and pay a Cuban for "life coaching."
Probably more qualified than this guy to give advice for pay.

Oh no, I don't know if I'm addicted to worry. Should I be? Do I worry too much? Now, I'll never get any sleep!

"3. Stop all the intake of information that makes you worry. It could be a person, it could be your television or certain websites. I'm not saying "ignorance is bliss"... but if you know you're prone to "spinning out of control" when you get exposed to certain information... HELLO! Stop it!"

Ironically, surfing the Huffington Post worries me a lot, just looking at the headlines and the constant influx of bad news about the economy, war, politics, etc. I wish I could set it up so when i surf to HP it automatically brings me to a different section, like "Living" or "Entertainment" or something more positive.

Try Drudgereport.com if you are a true masochist.
Just reading the headlines will send you into a downward tailspin.

i admit to #4 and #5. it should be better now that i finished school though. i swear i used to worry constantly about deadlines and test and not graduating. then when there is no class and no assignment due nor a test, i worried that i was forgetting to be worried about something. yep that bad. its better now tho. and i can finally sleep and not feel bad about it.

Not to throw a monkey wrench into this very insightful article and I really do think that he gives very good insight, but we had an employee a couple of years ago (just before the recession started) that had to be let go. About 2 months after he was let go we were informed that he committed suicide, it was a very shocking thing to find out and deal with. I didn't know him outside of work, but from what I understand he'd had a number of failings in his life, with family and professionally and at the point of his firing he was in his mid 50's. There were probably a lot of things that contributed to this decision, but I do think that losing his job was the trigger.

My Mother would say, " Things are too good now, something bad is going to happen!" Damn if I still hear that once in a while. Usually I worry about my health and dying. Both my parents died in their 80's of cancer.

Plus, I'm worried about worrying about being addicted to worrying.

I had to send this article to my partner. He is a classic example of the worst case scenario. He goes to the negative first and everything is bad. I really hope he reads this and takes the advice and works on it.

This article offers some useful opinions on stress management, specifically how to combat excessive worrying. But I disagree with the opinion that when a child is told to be wary of strangers or barking dogs or to look before crossing the street are the start of worry- as these are suggestions that are meant to keep us safe from harm. However, it is a fact that most people spend too much time focusing on what might happen rather than looking for solutions to counter the outcome they fear. When they feel a wave of doubt or angst coming on, the best thing to do is take a step back and ask yourself why the thought of such and such is so troubling. Then look seriously consider if it is as bad as you first imagined. And look for alternative strategies that will help you get through the problem which you are experiencing.

Bob Newhart had a bit called the 2 min pyschoanalisis. He would say "What is your problem" the patient would say "I worry all the time" Newhart would say "Stop it". The patient replies " can't". Newhart would say "What is your worst fear"? The patient replies "Being burried alive". Newhart says "Stop worrying or I will bury you alive, that will be $50."

Life coaching is such a scam.

Amen. Most self help books/gurus give advice that is only helpful to superficial issues.
At least these "insights" were free.
Wonder what's in his medicine cabinet? Prozac?
