What we covered

Are you feeling overwhelmed by anxious thoughts that seem to consume your day, making it difficult to focus on work or enjoy your personal life? If so, you're not alone. Managing anxiety and containing worries within designated time frames can be a helpful strategy for regaining control and finding relief from the grip of constant worry.

At October, we understand the impact that anxiety can have on your overall well-being, including your performance in the workplace. That's why we're excited to invite you to join our upcoming session on managing anxiety through the practice of "Worry Time."

What is Worry Time?

Worry Time is a technique that involves setting aside specific, dedicated moments to address and process your worries. Instead of allowing anxious thoughts to intrude upon your day without warning, Worry Time provides a structured approach to containing and managing those concerns.

During Worry Time, you'll have the opportunity to explore your worries, understand their underlying causes, and develop actionable strategies for addressing them. By confining your worries to defined time frames, you can prevent them from overshadowing your daily activities or disrupting your focus at work.

What to Expect from the Session

Led by our intern clinical psychologist, Katlego, who specializes in adolescent and adult psychotherapy, this session will provide practical guidance and valuable insights into implementing Worry Time as a tool for managing anxiety. You'll learn how to create healthy boundaries around anxious thoughts, establish designated moments for addressing worries, and develop coping mechanisms to navigate challenging emotions.

Through this interactive and informative session, you'll gain the knowledge and skills necessary to incorporate Worry Time into your daily routine and experience the positive impact it can have on your mental well-being.
