Best time to worry mentally

Father and son
Not quite halfway through 8th grade. Retired the same Fall he became an 8th grader.

The best time to worry is when you don’t need to.


Think positive, read positive, write positive, watch positive, speak positive, have positive friends. Seems obvious. But.

But what is even more obvious, ridiculously more obvious, is doing the opposite. Watch how this reads, sounds, feels:

Think negative, read negative, write negative, watch negative, speak negative, have negative friends.

Worry in advance. Take climate change. We needed to worry about it before we needed to worry about it. That’s the only way to prevent it.

When you don’t prevent a negative, closed mindset, you eventually (by the magic of slow and steady compound interest) find yourself in the proverbial emergency room.
