MAY’SNOTE

Julie Furlong

Most of the time we worry about things that have not even happened yet and most likely never will. This month’s Note #13 is all about managing your worries. In a world where our thoughts control how we feel, often, we need to sit back and remind ourselves, we do not need unnecessary worrying in our lives. Unnecessary worrying is an unproductive habit that will never amount to anything positive. We should be having a good look at the big picture — how bad is it really? Working on a few of the pointers and tips in this blog for May will help you manage your worries away. Please don’t forget if you have any feedback, I would love to hear from you. Also, if you have not already done so, please hook up via your preferred social media platform to receive free reminders during your working week. Have fun this May!

Unnecessary worrying is an unproductive habit that will never amount to anything positive. I intentionally train and remind my mind to not worry.
