I was watching Hour of Power this morning and they brought up an interesting statistic regarding anxiety and worry.
There was a study of people and the things they worry about and here is what they discovered.
40% of worry is about things that NEVER happen
30% of worry is about things that have already happened and can't be changed.
12% of worry is about gossip which is usually false
10% of worry is about future health concerns which may never happen and can often be solved by just eating right/etc.
That totals 92% of the things we worry about
Leaving just 8% for worry about things that we actually should worry about.
