With all that’s going on in the world do you find yourself freaking out from time to time? Or maybe you’re living on the edge all the time, worrying about what has yet to happen to you. If you are stressed out, scared of what’s happening out there, and what might happen, you are in the company of a lot of people right now. At the current time fear is definitely magnified because there are at least a half dozen things to be worried or scared about with all that’s going on. So don’t feel like you are all alone.
How worried and fearful are you on a scale of 1 to 10? Do you usually hold it together or do you regularly have to fight off the fear and worry? And most importantly what will work for you to help ease some of the fear you might be feeling; to get off of the merry-go-round so to speak?
If watching the news triggers you, try only listening to the headlines so you know the most important things going on, or take a break altogether for a week or two. If something major happens, you will definitely hear it from someone.
And then of course there is social media. We can truly get sucked in. It’s like an addiction and once we get in there it may be hard to stop scrolling. What’s a person to do? Again, you may need to take a break; tell your friends to text you instead and turn it off; even deleting it from your phone if need be for a bit.
According to scientists and metaphysics alike, fear has a lower vibration than peace, love or joy. So spending some time lifting your spirits creates a wonderful byproduct of letting your fear just melt away. Perhaps that means spending some time in meditation, yoga, prayer, playing with a puppy, or counting your blessings and staying in gratitude. Find what works best for you and even mix it up so you don’t get bored. Fear stresses the mind, the body, and the emotions, so try to get out of that cycle of fear. No time like the present!
