There are problems I need to work on, to sort out. Progress can be made on these things through good planning, and action. So thinking about the problems, focusing on one at a time, planning what to do and then actually doing it are the steps to take.
But… circular worrying, repetitive thoughts, imagining worst case scenarios, these do not help, they make no contribution to sorting things out. So I want to remember that:
The fears in your head are (most often) worse than the reality.
