How to break the worry habit before it breaks you
Rule 1: Crowd worries out of your mind b keeping busy. Plenty of action is one of the best therapies ever devised for curing “wibber gibbers”
Rule 2: Don’t fuss about trifles. Don’t permit little things—the mere termites of life—to ruin your happiness.
Rule 3: Use the law of averages to outlaw your worries. Ask yourself: “What are the odds against this thing’s happening at all?
Rule 4: Co-operate with the inevitable. If you know a circumstance is beyond your power to change or revise, say to yourself: “It is so, it cannot be otherwise”
Rule 5: Put a “stop-loss” on your worries. Decide just how much anxiety a thing may be worth—and refuse to give it anymore.
Rule 6: Let the past bury its dead. Don’t say sawdust.
