Anxiety Culture has an article called How to Stop Worrying which talks about worrying is a learned and conditioned behaviour in the modern days. It also discusses what are the obstacles blocking one to stop worrying. So how to overcome your worry? – The article suggests a trick that can postpone your worries, so that you get into habit on not worrying in the present:

Very interesting article (with fun site design). Worth a read.
