Five Strategies for Managing Worry
1. Thought Stopping
When the worrying thought or image comes, shout “STOP” to yourself.
Then, picture a big, red, stop sign.
2. Attention Grabbing Tasks:
Tasks must be active and engaging, not passive. Examples include:
Playing a musical instrument or singing
Build models (e.g. model trains, airplanes)
3. The “Worry Box”
Set aside specified time to worry.
Limit worry and obsession only to those times.
4. Write it down!
5. Schedule Compulsions and Worry-Related Behaviors
Don’t wait until anxiety builds; plan specific time for compulsive behaviors.
Steadily increase the period of time between worry-related behaviors
