LGIM: The Cost of Worry

What if you had to put a dollar into a jar every time you worried? It would add up
pretty quick wouldn’t it?

In fact, most of us don’t pay attention to the amount of time and energy we spend daily on worrying or consider that it may, quite possibly, be bankrupting us.

Worrying is a real thing and there is a cost to us. It costs us:

Stress and anxiety
Mental exhaustion
Lack of focus
Disconnection from others
And more

You know what else takes up time? Happy thoughts. Gratitude. Kindness. And whereas worry can drain our (mental and emotional) piggy bank, the others tend to fill and replenish that same piggy bank.

Worrying is real and I am not saying that at times it is not justified, but if you find that you are worrying more than normal, you need to pay attention to it.

There is a cost to our thoughts. Good and bad. The question I have for you is are you investing your thoughts into accounts that will drain you or grow you?

This week lets focus on less worry and more happiness. Let’s fill that piggy bank with good thoughts and see how those thoughts can compound into good fortune for us, and others around us.
