Reader's Digest (Canada) - - Cover Story -

When you have a big meet­ing at the of­fice, you get so worked up that you of­ten have trou­ble sleep­ing or you might even call in sick. When some­thing’s un­cer­tain in your life, you usu­ally jump to a worst-case sce­nario.*

You reg­u­larly worry about ev­ery­thing from for­get­ting to take your med­i­ca­tion to meet­ing dead­lines to be­ing late for a date—but that will drive you to set re­minders for your­self

and be proac­tive about your to-do list.

You go about your day with­out con­sis­tently think­ing ahead,

but you still get ner­vous when a key event comes along. When you do think about the fu­ture, you usu­ally be­lieve it will turn out okay.
