How to Quiet Fear and Worry

Something I know to be true: letting fear and worry take control is never helpful. But I still struggle with them both regularly.

Eventually, I decided to make a list. A list of the practices I’ve found that help me to quiet the fear and worry threatening to take hold of my day.

This month, you’ll see only a few new additions to August’s reading list as I wrap up the books I began in July.
