  1. This is such a comprehensive and thoughtful look at worry and happiness. I have found that movement (specifically yoga) really helps me to connect to my body and feel grounded. Also, I had to laugh at the Salmonsohn quote–it’s true!

      Thanks, Benita! I agree getting professional support is essential for anyone struggling with anxiety or other mental health concerns. I believe therapy is something anyone can benefit from.

  5. Martha, this post is SO helpful! I like to think of myself as a recovering worry wart. 🙂 I truly agree with you in that it helps so much just to be aware. Many times, I’d be thinking of the worst-case scenario and doom and gloom and I was making the situation into something it wasn’t at all, and wasn’t likely to ever turn into. While I still find myself wanting to go there, I have learned to manage my worries much better in the past year. I try to really assess what I’m worried about, why, and what action I can take to make things better.

    Wishing you a wonderful upcoming weekend, my friend!
