Perform a Good Deed - Be or Gift Out a Worry Eater
All people including children have worries in life.  How in the world can being or gifting a Worry Eater be a good thing? What is a Worry Eater?  There is actually a toy on the market called a Worry Eater.  It is both simple and brilliant.  A Worry Eater toy is a stuffed animal with a mouth (pouch) that can be opened and closed with a zipper.  The idea with a Worry Eater is to write down a worry on a piece of paper and put the piece of paper in the Worry Eater's mouth.  Wouldn't it be wonderful if a Worry Eater could take in your worries and get rid of them?  In a way, a Worry Eater does this very thing.  A Worry Eater is a children's toy but the concept behind the Worry Eater can be used by people of all ages.

It can be quite freeing for a person to discuss worries with a friend, relative, neighbor, teacher, mentor, etc. . . .  This is the first step of a journey in many instances to getting a person beyond and above his or her worries.   You see being or giving a Worry Eater can be a good deed in many respects.

Have you been stressed out about something and a friend or relative came to your rescue by helping you cope with your worries?  Who have been Worry Eaters in your life?  Have you been a Worry Eater for your friends, relatives, children, and others?  How about being a Worry Eater for a total stranger?  

Many people by virtue of the profession or occupation serve as Worry Eaters on a daily basis.  These people include but certainly are not limited to our clergy, doctors, counselors / therapists, nurses, attorneys, teachers, coaches, servicemen, police, fire rescue personnel, etc . . .  This list can go on and on.  

Back to our friend - the Worry Eater toy.  A person can write a worry down on a piece of paper and put the worry in the mouth of the monster.  Reassuring and encouraging notes can also be placed in the mouth of the Worry Eater giving words of advice and support.
