One technique is to postpone your worries to a specified time at the end of the day. Perhaps you could stop at the park on the way home from work. Or maybe you could settle into your comfy chair after dinner. Wherever and whenever you set your time, try to make it a daily routine. This will get you in the habit of postponing all your worries until the designated time.
During your worry time, give yourself permission to review all the frustrations, irritations or other worries that you have had during the day. Use this time to try to find resolutions or steps that you can take to resolve some of your anxieties. Once your time is up, put your worries aside and trust in your subconscious mind to keep working on the problem for tomorrow's session.
