The Warm Milk Journal

A nurturing place for people who can't sleep

A Worry Journal


We all worry. So why not worry productively? We can set aside a specific time in our day to “worry”. Get out our journals or a notebook specific for this purpose. On one side of a page write down the worry. On the other side write down something you can do about it. This can by any little action step that moves you closer to a solution to the problem.

That’s it. Then, when your mind starts doing its over thinking, worrying thing, you can remind it that it has already had its time to worry for the day. Tell it to relax.

  1. I like this idea. Will give it a try 🙂

    I wonder if the same would work for problem solving or if this would curn the subconscious…

    What do you think?

    • I think it would be great for problem solving. It gets our minds on a more solution oriented track. Forward moving baby steps…
