Many folks worldwide are personally struggling with the devastation, loss of lives and possible nuclear meltdowns happening in Japan.
It's hard not to feel horror, sadness, anger and more while watching other members of our global family without water, missing family members and in the firing line of a nuclear meltdown..
What's also important is to find ways to make sure you do not over stress your body, family, relationships and work. It's a fine balancing act to focus on what we can to help Japan and take care of ourselves too. You getting sick, depressed and inactive not only is f no help to them but it can hurt you and those around you too.
These five tips can help you feel like you are doing something proactive and stay useful for the good of all.
1) Stop Over Thinking What May Happen to You
Letting your mind take you through a house of horrors about if the radiation will reach you or how this might happen to you next only keeps you frozen in fear and sometimes spreads that fear to your children, friends and co-workers. The best way to sort out too many thoughts is to separate what is fact from fiction. FACT is that they need our prayers, money and positive thoughts now. FICTION is that you will get sick or have a disaster happen to you next.2) Scan your Body.
Detect and release tension in your body from head to toe especially while watching the news, and talking and thinking about it endlessly. Many people are getting sick from worrying and sitting by the news all day plus wondering what to buy like Iodine tablets. Instantly calm your anxiety and gain focus through conscious breathing and loosening a tight jaw, clenched fists or raised shoulders, especially when watching, reading or talking about it.
