Don't Worry If You're a Worrier

爱担心?别担心

lthough worrying does not feel good, it may have surprising benefits, when done in just the right amount, two psychology researchers argue in a new editorial.

两位心理学研究人员在一篇新的专家评论文章中说,尽管担心的感觉不好,但如果程度适当可能有意想不到的好处。

For example, worrying may motivate people to engage in behaviors that are potentially beneficial to their health, the researchers said. People who are worried may slather on sunscreen to help prevent skin cancer, and women may get regular mammograms to screen for breast cancer, the researchers said.

这两位研究人员说,例如,担心可能促使人们采取对自身健康或许有好处的举动。他们说,心怀担忧的人可能会大量涂抹防晒霜以防止患上皮肤癌,而女性可能会定期进行乳房X光检查以筛查乳腺癌。

“Despite its negative reputation, not all worry is destructive or even futile,” lead author Kate Sweeny, a psychology professor at the University of California, Riverside, said in a statement.

加利福尼亚大学里弗赛德分校心理学教授、文章的第一作者凯特·斯威尼说:“尽管名声不佳,但担忧并不全都是消极的,甚至不全都是无意义的。”

However, the relationship between worry and behaviors that are potentially beneficial to people's health is complex and seems to depend on how much a person worries, the authors noted.

然而,两位作者指出,担心和可能对健康有好处的行为之间的关系是复杂的,而且似乎取决于人们担心的程度。

Previous research has shown that “women who reported moderate amounts of worry, compared to women reporting relatively low or high levels of worry, are more likely to get screened for cancer,” Sweeny said. “It seems that both too much and too little worry can interfere with motivation, but the right amount of worry can motivate without paralyzing.”

斯威尼说,此前的研究已经表明“适度担忧的女性与相对不太担心或者太担心的女性相比更可能去进行癌症筛查”。“太多或者太少的担忧似乎都可能干扰积极性,但是适度的担心可以激发人们的行动,而不会令人气馁。”
