I used to think it was nonsense but I'm trying to train my mind to think differently. Stop worrying​ about the future or the past. Just being in the moment.

Trying to learn how to stand outside my thoughts and observe them instead of believing that I am my thoughts and letting them control me.

It takes a lot of practice but it's really starting to make a difference.

You can't do anything about a 'worry'. Worrying is pointless.
You can do something about a problem.

Very true. People are sick with worry and it makes no sense. It's such a destructive thought pattern.

You have the same philosophy as I do on worrying.

If there's nothing you can do about something, it's pointless to worry about the issue. Easier said than done, though. :)

It's better to concentrate one's mental efforts on problems about which one can - even potentially - do something.

Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.

I have meditated nearly every day for 40+ years. That suggests that I think it works.
