New Study Reveals a Skill to Dealing with Anxiety
Anxiety can be very hard to deal with. Your mind won't stop running. It keeps going and going like the Energizer Bunny. The thoughts are constant.
The mind attempts to go all Nostradamus on us and predict the future.
A new study has shown that 91.4% of these worry predictions are actually wrong. They simply are not true. Check out this quote from the study:
“Primary results revealed that 91.4% of worry predictions did not come true. Higher percentages of untrue worries significantly predicted lower GAD [General Anxiety Disorder] symptoms after treatment, as well as a greater slope of symptom reduction from pre- to post-trial. The most common percentage of untrue worries per person was 100%. Thus, worries in those with GAD were mostly inaccurate."
The most common percentage of untrue worries was 100%. This anxiety filled mind is pretty much incorrect all the time. All. The. Time.
