How to use worrisome in a sentence?

  1. Marion Underwood:

    Receiving these pictures is upsetting, especially at such a young age, because it's something you didn't ask to see, it's something you may have wished you did not open, but you can't erase it out of your mind, it's illegal, it's worrisome, it's scary, it's dangerous, it's loaded. If you tell an adult, everybody will get in a lot of trouble. So I think it puts them in a really tough position.

  2. Paul Stimers:

  4. Barry Boden:

    With chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) in football players, we only have the end point, we don’t always have the history of how many concussions they had or any genetic predisposition, it’s certainly worrisome, and it’s certainly better to err on the side of conservatism to reduce the number of impacts, at least during practices, and restrict contact during the week.

  5. James Maddux:

    Exercise can be a mental distraction from worrisome thoughts. We also know that being out in nature generally enhances our sense of well-being, so exercise that takes place outdoors, such as skiing in this study, should be especially helpful, engaging in a period of exercise can lead to a sense of accomplishment and a greater sense of self-efficacy( or self-confidence) that can lead to lower anxiety.
