7 Reasons Not to Sweat the Small Stuff ...

If there's anything I wish I could teach myself to do, it would be to stop worrying about everything.

If you're anything like me, you probably feel like you spend a good portion of life worrying about it instead of living it.

It's easy to joke about but it's a genuine problem - anxiety can affect the way you interact with other people, the decisions you make and your overall level of happiness.

So, here's what I try to do when I know I'm worrying about something that doesn't really matter, but can't stop thinking about it anyway.

1. Put It into Context

Whatever the thing is you're worrying about, think about it - has it ever happened to anyone else?

Yes, probably everyone, all the time, and they're fine.

Could the situation be worse?

Of course it could, probably much worse.

If this is the only thing you have to worry about, doesn't that actually make you pretty lucky?

Yes, so make the most of it!
