Step out of worry

If you notice yourself worrying about something that hasn’t happened yet, take your attention to the soles of your feet.

If you’re standing, feel where your weight is balanced over each part of your feet; if you’re sitting, concentrate on the feeling of your socks or shoes touching your skin; if you’re in bed, notice the textures and warmth of the duvet or sheets touching your feet.

Bring your awareness to your breathing for a few in-breaths and out-breaths, and then quietly say to yourself “I’m OK just now. I’ll deal with that later, if I need to.” Then you can move on with your day.
