A Simple Question to Alleviate Worrying

The human mind is uniquely brilliant. Our remarkable cognitive capacity has allowed us to develop cures for deadly diseases like smallpox and tuberculosis, build skyscrapers and land on the moon.

But we humans have a tendency to misuse this wondrous capability.

We imagine horrible outcomes that are unlikely to play out. We lie in bed at night and fixate on our to-do list or the stupid comment we made or the email we forgot to send. We overthink, we ruminate, we obsess, we worry.

In short, we create a whole bunch of unnecessary suffering.

Getting in the habit of asking a simple question, “Is this useful?” can help curb these behaviors.

Whether we’re worried about the wording of an email or over-thinking the consequences of taking the 1:42 pm flight vs the 6:20 pm flight, our thoughts can become compulsive and quite frankly, debilitating.

The work I do with clients is centered around creating healthier habits – and building new habits requires space and energy.

Learning to disrupt and diminish unproductive and energy sucking thought loops helps to free up the space needed to take purposeful action.

Asking ourselves “is this useful?” helps us move towards the next logical question: “what is useful?”
