Let’s talk about worry and wellbeing!
Worry is a form of thinking. Sometimes worry can be helpful and sometimes it can be unhelpful. In our latest newsletter, How not to worry, developed by ESH Consultancy and Training Ltd, we are going to explore worry. “Worry can become a habit. We can often feel worried and anxious about something and not be aware of the reasons why, but, by bringing to the surface the reasons why we worry we have more chance of dealing with it”. In this newsletter, we look at possible reasons for worry and tips on how to manage worry.
