Everyone, it seems, is an expert at ‘projecting’ — the practice of projecting bad things in the immediate future and then worrying about them constantly. Try instead to turn this bad mental habit topsy-turvy; start thinking of pleasant and happy things that can come to you, that can be yours, in the immediate future. A dinner date; a vacation; a favorite show on TV. It doesn’t have to be winning the Lottery. Just something pleasant and possible. It’s dynamic daydreaming, and it helps melt away the future stress that can haunt a person and rob them of peace of mind.
