what do you worry about?

I was thinking how it is bad to worry about the same things everyday, and I should try to remeber all the good stuff going on in my life. Then I thought how I am sure everyone worries about the little things everyday, like me, I worry about, not doing enough with my time and my day. I sometimes worry about being too lazy, thats probably why I work out a lot, it makes me feel like I did something good with my day.

What do you guys worry about?

Wow, those could have been my words exactly. I'm constantly worried that I'm not being productive enough with my time. Maybe it's because I don't have a "normal" 9-5 schedule.

I worry that I'm not making the most of what I have.... or that I'm wasting time... and its hard because only you can really judge what is or isnt a waste of your time. Its good to know I'm not alone:)

I live for today and never worry about tomorrow cause tomorrow may never come.
My grandmother always told me " Never go to bed angry at your spouse, children etc. cause you never know if you are going to wake up in the morning".

I agree with the 12:05 poster that not having a "normal" 9-5 routing is stressful. I'm working toward getting more "structure" back in my life; maybe not 9-5 but something that would help with the anxiety around time management.

unbelievable! I thought I was the only one who thought they never did enough with their time. I keep busy all day and when I workout I feel like I really have accomplished a lot. Thank you for sharing this, it helps.

yes, we are financialy secure, but I always worry about money. I grew up in a family of 12 children and never went without, but maybe because of that I worry there will not be enough money. I feel worry has robbed me of enjoying life and I am trying to not do it so much.

I worry that I am messing up my kids even though I try really hard to be a loving, patient mother.

I also worry about messing up my kids. I stay at home with them every day and sometimes it is hard not to yell at the constant bickering. Does anyone relate?

I think the better question for me is what don't I worry about.

i'm a bit of a hypochondriac-everytime i read about X . . .i think i have it. I too, also worry about if i'm being productive, if i'm doing enough with my life etc (however, i have a lot of anxieties in general!!). I think there is so much emphasis in our society on "doing" things, efficiency, production . . a whole, "gotta have this done yesterday" mentality (even when it comes to acquiring the newest gadgets) that it is hard to step back and see what it is you really want/need from your life vs. the pressures we put on ourselves because of societal factors. I often feel guilty if i decide to sit down and watch some tv in the afternoon . . .which i rarely do, but i feel bad about it even if i've already done my errands, the laundry, worked, worked out, etc! it's like, what more does one have to do to have done "enough"? Glad to know other women out there go through this too, and i'm not the only one who feels "lazy"!

My husband and I are retired so we never care what time it is. We have been together 2 1/2 years he is going on 55 and had a heart attack 9 months after we married. I worry about him more than anything. We spend every second of every day together. All we have each other now so I cheerish every moment we have together. Lets hope we have many happy wonderful years together.

I worry about my mom's health and whether or not I'm doing enough to support her. I also worry about whether or not I'll be a good mother to my own children.

I worry about my 8-year-old son. He has problems at school and it is just hard for me and my husband to relate. He is smart, but lacks self-disipline. I get frustrated with him easily and he is so kind-hearted. I worry about how he relates to everyone in school. He is different. Since he is having troubles now, I wonder what that means for the future of his schooling. I worry that I should find a way to afford to send him to private school or get him tutoring. I worry that we put too much emphasis on school. I worry that we DON'T put enough emphasis.

My 1-year-old is easy! :<)

I worry about falling into "the gap"

I'm a successful exec, but I'm also a single woman without family. I often worry about what would happen if I was unemployed for a long period of time... there's no "safety net".

To the 12:05 poster (3.5.06) & others w/atypical schedules

I'm the 4:22 poster (3.5.06) who agreed that not having a "normal" work schedule creates worries about time management. The 12:05 poster suggested that we start a group. So I did it! I named it "Fitness & atypical schedules." Hopefully it will attract people who use working out as a way to structure time!

Well, I know it wouldn't help w/ regular unemployment, but make SURE to get the best disability insurance you can!

Worry is a useless emotion, nothing is created from it.

Simply trust in the abundance of the universe and visualize.

Postive thought draws to you positive energy.

Worry and more will be drawn to you to worry about. Take care.
