Anxiety & stress can be debilitating and overwhelming.

Definition of "stress":

  • Stress is often described as feeling overloaded, wound-up, tense and worried, and occurs when we face situations where we feel we can’t cope, or have the resources available to deal with it.

(Australian Psychological Society 2015)

Definition of "anxiety":

  • Feeling anxious in certain situations can help us avoid danger, triggering our 'fight or flight' response. It is how we’ve evolved to keep ourselves safe. Sometimes though, we can become overly worried about perceived threats – bad things that may or may not happen. When your worries are persistent or out of proportion to the reality of the threat, and get in the way of you living your life, you may have an anxiety.

(Black Dog Institute Australia 2018)

So what is "Worry Time"? Worry time actually allocates time to emptying your mind, problem solving and trouble solving particular situations to eliminate generalised anxiety and stress, and puts your mind set, thought process into a positive problem solving lens.
