We all are guilty of this. And usually, things really do end up being fine! Here are some tips to stop worrying.
1. Determine what is worrying you.
When you identify the things that are causing you anxiety and stress then you can handle each issue accordingly. By picking one problem at a time, you will put your mind at ease that one thing is crossed off your list. Distinguishing which worry you can fix and something that is simply out of your control will help elevate pressures.
2. Accept that fact that you're worried.
Every time that I feel worried, I frustrate myself even more by feeling crazy for worrying. I'm slowly learning that my feelings are valid and ok.

3. Create a plan of action.
If the situation you are worried about can be fix, then fix it! Do not procrastinate on the issue and become even more worried. Address the problem now and to prevent further stresses down the rode. If you are struggling with assignments are always running late. Plan and stick to a schedule to prevent you from worrying.
