Addiction to Worry By Margaret Paul, Ph.D.

Carole started counseling with me because she was depressed. She had been ill with chronic fatigue syndrome for a long time and believed her depression was due to this. Inrepparttar 126129 course of our work together, she became aware that her depression was actually coming from her negative thinking - Carole was a constant worrier. Many words out of her mouth centered around her concerns that something bad might happen. “What if I never get well?” “What if my husband gets sick?” “What if I run out of money?” (Carole and her husband ran a very successful business and there was no indication that it would not go on being successful). “What if my son gets into drugs?” “What if my kids don’t get into good colleges?” “What if someone breaks intorepparttar 126130 house?”

Her worry was not only causing her depression, but was also contributing to her illness, if not actually causing it. Her worry caused so much stress in her body that her immune system could not do its job of keeping her well. Yet evenrepparttar 126131 awareness that her worry was causing her depression and possibly even her illness did not stop Carole from worrying. She was addicted to it. She was unconsciously addicted torepparttar 126132 sense of control that worry gave her.

I understood this well because I come from a long line of worriers. My grandmother’s whole life was about worrying. She lived with us as I was growing up and I don’t remember ever seeing her without a look of worry on her face. Same with my mother – constant worry. Of course, I picked up on it and also became a worrier. However, unlike my mother and grandmother, who worried daily untilrepparttar 126133 day they died, I decided I didn’t want to live that way. The turning point came for merepparttar 126134 day my husband and I were going torepparttar 126135 beach and I started to worry thatrepparttar 126136 house would burn down and my children would die. I became so upset fromrepparttar 126137 worry that we had to turn around and come home. I knew then that I had to do something about it.

Workgroups and networking crossover

Written by Jan Fritz

As I try to explain and describerepparttar power of cooperation in workgroups, I often get lost. Networking Cross-Over is far more easy to visualize as it has innovative and intuitive parts to turn efforts to success!

As references to aproach this area I bringrepparttar 126127 work of Carl Rogers and Harald Swedner. They made a giant effort scaling down their discoveries to its essenscial and cognitive structures, "decoded" to let us accessrepparttar 126128 cumulative effects and synergies in networking withrepparttar 126129 experience being present in an designed dynamic and close encounter of a motivated group.

The interactive and reflective components in these designed meetings, force real needs to co-function instead of hidden motives and false expectations that will limitrepparttar 126130 perception. Dealing with missions more or less with "brains off" (to let EQ join common sense) may boostrepparttar 126131 process to spin-off. That is a good reason for developing network strategies.

This level is required to recognize and identifyrepparttar 126132 best mix of options for any given occation. To optimizerepparttar 126133 alternatives and secure constructive attitudes, we go crossover culture, borders and branches. Your treasures need a Network!
