22: Find Out Before You Flip Out

First of all, if you're not watching Ted Lasso, why not?

Kidding aside, this line from one of the episodes in Season 3 stood out to me:

Find out before you flip out.

I have this tendency to imagine the worst-case scenarios, suffer from debilitating anxiety because of my thoughts, get overwhelmed with intense emotions over something that I'm not even sure is true, and get worked up over something that hasn't happened yet.

So this little mantra is quite grounding, reminding me to stay present and observe my thoughts instead of letting them control me and my mood throughout the day.

In case you need it, coach yourself as well: Find out before you flip out.
