The fourth foundation of mindfulness lists five groupings for contemplation - the five hindrances, the five aggregates, the six sense bases, the seven factors of awakening, and the Four Noble Truths.

  Tara Brach
When we are suffering from stress, we are paying attention to our world in a narrow and rigid way. Through meditations that cultivate a wakeful and open attention, we can dramatically transform the feelings of anxiety and aloneness that underlie all stress.

2011-05-24 Satipatthana Sutta, Third Foundation: Division Through Worry 59:12
  Rodney Smith
Worry attempts to protect us from every contingency. It becomes a pattern and view of life where I am the guardian and protector of my security. Worry is actually a process of self-affirmation because we keep affirming our power over what life brings forth. If I let down my guard, life would be chaotic and out of control, and therefore I need to worry to have everything turn out as I wish. Worry and planning elevates us to the status of a god while we are actually being controlled by fear.
