Worrying, Our Health, and Solutions.

Worrying has gained increased attention in the past decade due to a startling surge in stress related deaths. However, worrying is often ignored and thought of as something that will go away. What has changed? How can worrying be ignored yet be so threatening to our life?

Understanding what worrying is and what it does to our physical and mental health informs us as to why reducing and/or eliminating worrying is so important. Knowing the impact can give us a better understanding about the severity which can ultimately motivate us to practice the 5 tools that are offered. The information provided by a professional therapist, interwoven with a live group session, will highlight the interconnection between worrying and inner peace.
