Coping with Anxiety in a Stressful World

August 28, 2019

What are some causes of anxiety and stress today?

 

· Having too many events/activities scheduled in to you or your child’s week

· Alarms, notifications, text messages and emails make us constantly available to everyone

· Scary stories in the media and around the world can frighten us, and spread our attention to too many possible threats that we do not have control over

· This is “stress caused by a stressful world”

 

 

What are some things we can do to lessen anxiety caused by these stressors?

 

· Pay attention to local news and events, and focus your attention towards problems you can concretely help solve

· Remind yourself of what you do and don’t have control over

· Prioritize which notifications you get on your phone, at what volume, and at what times

· Reduce events that are scheduled into your day and your week—leave downtime (and unscheduled, unstructured time for your children as well)

· Leave time in between events, or in-between work and the night’s activities for rest—try not to move from one thing to another with no time in-between

· Say no. Say no to events, people, places and projects that will not help lead to better well-being for you and your family

· Pay attention to positive news stories—reading about the good in the world can help focus your attention there and balance out the negative

· Engage in healthy activities that reduce your stress, such as exercise, time with positive friends and using creativity as an outlet
