STUDY: YOU'RE WORRIED ABOUT STUFF THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. KNOCK IT OFF.

Unless you enjoy baldness and diarrhea.

You know those stupid thoughts that keep you up at night? "If the zombies come, will I wake up in time?"  Those arguments that you play out in your head with your boss when you think you're in trouble for something?  When you worry about getting caught for looking at boobs when your girlfriend never even saw you do it?

STOP.

Worrying about everything is a complete waste of time because they almost NEVER come true.  Researchers at Penn State wanted to find out exactly how much time we wasted worrying, and it turns out, we're all idiots.

They asked 29 people with Generalized Anxiety Disorder to keep a journal of everything they worried about for 10 days.  And then after three weeks they checked on how many of those worries came true.  Turns out  91.4% of the stuff people worried about didn't come true . . . only 8.6% did.  

So....LESS THAN ONE IN TEN THINGS.

With my luck it would be the boob thing, but dammit, live your life!  

Here's the link to the study if you wanna see the details.
