My Worry Box

“I will write down my worries and put them in a worry box.”

When you become a parent you buy a membership to The Lifetime Worriers Club. When you become a Grandparent you earn a Platinum Card. I was thinking about what to do with my worries. Worry beads?  I researched a bit and decided that would make me feel more obsessive. The idea of “worry box” came from somewhere and I googled it. Turns out it is a recommended technique for handling worrying about stuff. You can even buy an App for it. So instead of doing laundry, exercise, shower, or any other sundry list of things I could be doing, I made a worry box. It was kind of fun and took my mind off things for a bit.


My Worry Box


How do you handle your worries?  And please don’t tell me you don’t have any, unless your name is Bob Marley.  And I love my kids and grandkid very much, but I still worry about them.

    When I was in younger I had worry dolls. You press your emotions onto the worry dolls, tiny, woven miniature figures, and you put them into a straw box when you go to sleep. The idea was that you needn’t worry, since the dolls would solve your worries in the night. I liked it very much and used it often. Of course, it wasn’t too many years later, my kids found my worry dolls and who knows what happened to them, but I still have the box. I keep bobbins in it 😛
    There is no end to my worry. I am medaling in worry.

      I love the worry doll idea. How sweet and comforting for kids and a very good idea. I think we both should find some worry dolls to help out, take the load off a bit. Thank You, Joey. ❤

      I think it is worth a try if you are obsessing about something. Let the box hold it. I read a few suggestions on how to use it. Some were recommending it for children and others for adults or anyone. And you can do it at night before you go to sleep, if you are going to be kept awake. I like the idea of the box holding my worries and then I can throw them out at a later time. 🙂
