Worry Wart? Wort?

This is what I’ve been doing ALOT of lately. I’m a self proclaimed worry wart (?) wort (?)  I come from a long line of worriers, sort of, so I blame genetics.

This girl has got quite a lot on her mind and over the last two nights I have taken in a total of oh maybe 6 hours of sleep? Which is not conducive to a healthy vacation sleep pattern. I’m supposed to go back to school in a week feeling refreshed! Oy vey.. 

What is it I worry about so much? Well, you see I’m in my early 20’s what is there not to worry about? Life, love, jobs, future homes, family, friends.. you name it & I am sure I have worried about it! geeze laweezz

What’s a girl to do.. 

On a brighter note I got in a 3 mile run yesterday which always helps to put my mind at ease. Unfortunately, I did a 1.5 mile out and back on the icy streets of good ol Michigan. Pretty sure I spent those miles starting and stopping and then tip toeing around the icy patches. Not my smartest decision. However, I think I’m still in denial of what winter really feels like for all of these northerners.

What you didn’t spend most of your life in 60 degree Januarys? bummer

After 2.5 years this still takes some getting used to. I miss my sunshine and running shorts.

On an even Brighter note tomorrow will be spent in Chicago! Hopefully it won’t be nearly as cold and icy as it is up here..

I know, again, I’m in denial.

What do you do to combat your worries?!

Running helps a ton but sometimes I just can’t shake em!

Do you have a favorite city? 

Chicago is pretty high on my list!

  1. Good for you for going out on an icy run! It was 18 degrees when I woke up this morning so I decided to go to the gym instead! I’m a wimp, I guess.
    As far as worrying goes, I really like lists. I always make a list of the things I need to do at the beginning of every week and it helps me to feel like I have stuff under control. But I’m a worry wart (I think it’s an a… not sure though) too. My mom says I never met a reason to stress I didn’t like to stress out over.
    My favorite city is New York. Of course, I’m a little biased because it’s my home!

  2. I am a worrier too!! I totally understand the 20-something ‘life’ ‘career’ relationships’ ‘fitness’ worries.

    I deal with it in a couple of ways (some healthier than others). I eat a lot of candy or cake (don’t do this!), or I run (this helps), but the best thing is tackle some of your problems i.e. sit down and write out a plan. This doesn’t always work, but sometimes it makes things seem less insurmountable.

    My fave cities are Melbourne, London and NYC! 🙂

  3. I totally commiserate- I’m the same way. I’m a naturally worrisome, anxious person, so I often have problems sleeping when I have something big on my mind. I hope you get things worked out and get a good night’s rest 🙂

  4. I feel like there are 2 types of worrying..
    1. you can do something about it – so do something and stop worryings
    2. you can’t do anything – so stop worrying!
    🙂
