Overcoming Worry and Rumination

Do you find yourself constantly in your head: worrying about the future or replaying the past?

Do you find that your thinking is often circular? No matter how much you try to problem solve or seek reassurance, you end up back at the beginning, worrying about the same thing.

Worry is part of being human. And it keeps us safe from possible threats. But, when worry sticks around and becomes circular, it causes intense emotions, overwhelm, and exhaustion.

If you consider yourself to be a worrier, then this free workshop is for you.

In this workshop, you’ll learn:

  • Why some people worry more than others
  • Identify worry triggers and decrease reactivity to those triggers
  • New ways to respond to worry
  • Practical skills that can help you step out of circular thinking and slow down racing thoughts

 

Is there a fee? No! this is absolutely free.

Can I just listen or do I need to participate? You’re welcome either way. Turn on your camera and audio to interact with others or you’re more than welcome to just soak up the information without camera/audio. No pressure!

Who can attend? Adults, 18 years or older who are physically located in Japan or California. At this time, my services are limited to these two geographic regions.
