  • Me? I really don't. I have a few ways to try and soothe myself but they aren't ideal or terribly helpful/healthy (naps, valium, etc) I am a naturally anxious person by nature so extra chaos makes me crazy.

  • I worry only about things I have control over other things I don't, this philosophy has served me well in this hectic world!

  • Older, I agree 100%.. OP, If you can't change it, why worry about it.. Worry does not change anything but your BP, pulse and respiration rate...

    I don't worry about things I can't change....
