Worry Garden Metaphor

Plant your worries in the garden and leave them there

Worry Garden Metaphor Stress Relief

The Worry Garden metaphor  is an extended metaphor for removing stress, similar to the Worry Tree.

It encourages you to plant your worries in the garden and leave them there to grow into something else.

The metaphor works to relieve stress by getting you to transform your worries into metaphoric objects. Doing that gives you a strong  visualization of how you have changed them. Once your mind accepts that they can be changed, even a little, your own healing ability starts. The process will continue until the underlying reason for the stress is eliminated. The metaphor then continues by encouraging the transformation of the old worries into something new and fresh.
