Thought for today:
‘Anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows, but only empties today of its strength.’
— Charles Spurgeon

Not all anxiety is misplaced.
It is part of what allows us to plan, predict and prepare for possible outcomes.
At some point though it can become concerning.
One sign of this is ruminative thought – thinking in circles.
And another is in fears and phobias.
In fact, anxiety probably accounts for more than half of the issues my clients bring to me.
And then we have meta-anxiety – worrying about being anxious.
These are all painful, often physically as well as emotionally.
Equally, they are “invisible” to an observer.
This is a time of high anxiety for many people – maybe you, maybe those close to you.
How are you dealing with it and how well are those around you dealing with it?
This might be a good time to check in with them – listen and empathise – there is great comfort in this.
