How to Calm Your Anxiety, Stress, and Worry

By Allia Nolan Zobel

I admit it. I’m a worrywart. I’ve been one all my life. In fact, worrying is my life. Recent world events haven’t helped matters. And frankly, I don’t know whether I’m more afraid of: natural disasters, terrorism, or 401K losses. I’m also anxious over things like hurricanes, global warming, swine flu, misanthropic aliens, my Twitter ineptitude, falling elevators, and the return of polyester. This is just a drop in my sea of jitters.

I obsess over things that need to be turned off, put out, opened, closed, switched on, filled up, and emptied. I’m anxious for family, friends, relatives, and mankind in general, even lawyers. I fret about the past, the present, the future. Okay, so I know I shouldn’t worry, but I do. I’ve even written a book (“The Worrywart’s Prayer Book”) and gained insight I’d like to share in the hopes you, too, can get a grip and stop worrying.
