Here is the link...check it out and see if any look helpful for you...it takes some practice and time for the method to reverse the negative habits we have developed in our thinking...but keep it up, and it will start to help!
Therapy Work Sheets:

"Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its troubles...it empties today of its strength."
